Perfect Pan Pizza’s with Peter Reinhart
July 20, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Join author and Johnson & Wales University Baking Instructor Peter Reinhart for a special sneak preview of recipes from his next book, not due for publication till the summer of 2019. In this class he will show why pizzas baked in pans are the hottest trend these days in the pizza world. These include deep-pan “Detroit-Style,” Sicilian Pizzas, Grandma Pizza, Focaccia, and thin crusted Roman-Style pizzas. They’re fun to make, have amazing, crackly, buttery crusts, and are especially suited for baking in home ovens. This is a class for everyone who loves pizza in all of its infinite variations.
Menu: Detroit-Style Classic Red-Stripe and also Detroit-Style Pepperoni Deluxe; Roman-style Bianca and Rossa pizzas, Focaccia Genovese with tomatoes and pesto (and other variations), Sicilian “Clams Casino” Pizza, and a Grandma-Style ‘Reverse Cheese and Sauce’ pizza. In this hands-on class we will make three types of dough: Classic White, Country-Style (partial whole-grain), and Sourdough. Everyone will also make your own pan pizza dough to take home with you.
