Pizza is an American food staple and a beloved favorite amongst many families. Not only is it convenient, but it’s delicious too. This time, Ger-Nis is putting down the take-out menu and hanging up the phone, and in turn, getting our ovens hot and rolling out some dough in order to make gourmet pizzas in house. Ger-Nis will provide the warm soft dough for our pizza chefs to make their creations upon. In this class, it’s what’s on top that matters, colorful vegetables, hearty meat and fragrant herbs are the toppings of choice. Kids learn to experiment with toppings and let their inner chefs loose! The kids reign supreme today and will be the chef in charge of their own pizza design. This class is all about fun, experimentation and some wild pizza combinations. In addition we will be learning how to make simple, delicious natural & healthy sodas!
Recipes:We provide the dough and the toppings of your wildest dreams; Natural Cola & Grapefruit Soda
Class Type: Kindercooks & the Middle Child (3-12 years old)
