Pizza: The Other American Pie

An overhead shot of sliced NY style pizza with one slice removed, red pepper flakes sprinkled on top, and a bite taken out.

this class is being offered virtually and in-person.

Ah, the pizza pie! It's a cornerstone of the American diet, and yet so few folks actually make pizza at home! In this hands-on class*, we'll teach you how easy and fun it can be to make New York-style and Chicago-style pizzas from scratch, with a variety of cheeses, including Parmigiano Reggiano®, and toppings. We'll also share our recipe for Pizza Bianca, a flavorful Italian bread, topped with olive oil, salt, and Parmesan cheese, that is a great accompaniment to any dinner. The next time you reach for the phone to order pizza delivery, you'll remember it's fun and a lot more flavorful to make it yourself.

You'll leave the BAKE! class with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, and all the pizza sauces, pizza doughs, and pizzas you made in class.

For the in-person class, we'll fire up our wood-fired oven to BAKE! our New York-style pizzas and give you plenty of pizza samples to taste. You'll also go home with some great coupons.

* Please note, the virtual class takes place over two consecutive days. On Day One, we'll make our New York-style pizza dough, which needs to rest overnight; make our Chicago-style pizzas to completion; and mix our poolish for our Pizza Bianca. On Day Two, we'll make up our Pizza Bianca dough; make our New York-style pizza sauce; then shape, top, and bake our New York-style pizzas. We'll also bake our Pizza Bianca.

* The in-person class takes place over one day for 4 hours.

My Weigh Kitchen Scale


A scale is the perfect way to take the guesswork out of your measuring, but not all scales are created equal. The My Weigh KD-8000 is one of our favorites, and it's the same version of the scale our instructors use during BAKE! Classes. We like it because it weighs accurately down to 1 gram/0.05 oz, which means even small measurements will be precise. It also has a Baker's Math function that lets you calculate percentages of other ingredients in a recipe based on the total weight of your flour—a great way to figure out your dough's hydration, or to scale a recipe up or down!

The scale is battery-powered (but comes with an AC adapter if you'd rather have it plugged in) and has a weight capacity of up to 8000 grams/17.62 lb. It features a backlit LCD readout with a protective cover, and a removable platform for easy cleaning. The price includes ground shipping.
