Two types of homemade dough will be used. One will be for the Detroit Style Pizza, and the other for the Pretzel Crust Pizza. The instructor will provide step-by-step guidance and instruction help to ensure the process is a simple as can be. You can personalize your pizzas with toppings of your choosing. You will receive a list of ingredients and supplies, and the instructor's personal recipe for the Detroit Style Pizza dough a few days prior to the class.
