Pizza: Even when it’s $1.50-slice-from-Tony’s Down the Block bad, it’s pretty good. And as dozens of artisanal, Naples-trained, wood-fire-building, San Marzano-using obsessives have recently demonstrated, a fresh, hot pie can be ambrosial.
Thing is, you have to wait in line for that. But you can skip the queue after taking a class at Pizza a Casa: Pizza Self-Sufficiency Center, where you’ll learn to make your own.
Founder/pizza scientist Mark Bello, featured in today’s video, has honed his skills for more than fifteen years (he estimates his annual slice intake to be in the thousands). During the four-hour class, you’ll learn all his secrets, from the best way to roll dough to when to add herbs for optimal flavor.
You can also host parties for up to twelve in the tchotchke-filled space. We predict it’ll be the new go-to for birthday celebrations. Just wear an elastic waistband.
Pizza a Casa: Pizza Self-Sufficiency Center, 371 Grand Street, between Essex and Norfolk Streets (212-228-5483 or pizzaacasa.com). Tickets ($150) available online at zerve.com.
