Who knew there was a technique to making different styles of pizza that is way more technical than just using different sauce and toppings? We can't wait for you to learn the secrets behind the very popular Detriot style pizza from the owner of Alto Grado restaurant and food truck! Rick Doering will walk us through step by step. In this class you will make a pizza and have time to eat it, but will also leave with everything you need to make your first medium pizza at home! There will also be soda, lemonade, water, and salad available to go with your pizza!

Let's carve out 3 hours for this class! The class may be a tad shorter than that, but it would be wise to plan on being available from 6-9 pm!

We are adding a high quality Lloyd pizza pan with lid, so will charge an additional $36. It is a medium. If you prefer a large pan and lid it will be $53. Rick is getting these from his supplier in Michigan so everything will be there ready to go for us!
