For Christmas, I gave my boyfriend a pizza class at Lakeview’s Frasca. Three months later, we partook in the savory evening. A mere 25 bucks per person will get you each two glasses of wine (red or white), pizza prep tips and a personal pizza (margherita or pepperoni) you flatten and top yourself.
The chef, and part owner, provided these pizza tips:
-Add dry ingredients to wet for effective mixing.
-A well made dough will not stick to the mixing bowl.
-To knead the dough, roll the outsides in, this will create an outside layer that will prevent the carbon dioxide, released from the sugar-eating yeast, from exiting. This provides well-risen dough.
-Don't toss and spin the dough in the air. This causes air pockets.
-For crispy pepperoni place on top of cheese and for chewy, place underneath.
For months of anticipation, our pizzas were rather delicious. Just see for yourself.
