(map) There are several reasons to love the Saturday cooking workshops at Faraday’s Kitchen Store: They’re short (one hour), just ten bucks, and you get to eat whatever’s featured, in tomorrow’s case, pizza! Above, Chef Katy demonstrates proper rolling technique for the pizza dough, which she also tells you how to prepare (recipes are included with the class).
Chef Katy makes two pizzas for the class. One of the ingredients is roasted red bell pepper, which she shows you how to roast on the grill (alternatively, you can buy roasted bell peppers by the jar). The class takes notes and asks questions frequently, since they’re just four feet away.
Chef Katy dresses her pizzas before placing them on a pizza stone in a hot (500-degree) oven. If you are inspired by the class, Faraday’s sells pizza stones.
The best part – tasting! The finished product: Top, the margherita, with heirloom tomatoes, basil and fresh mozzarella. Below, crumbled sausage, goat cheese, roasted bell pepper and caramelized onion.
