Pizza Time

Last weekend I headed to Tribeca for a two-hour pizza making class.
The class was held at the AOA Bar and Grill. A single class is priced at $80/session but I came across a living social deal so I ending paying $40 for the class.

The restaurant was spacious and the setup was adorable. I do plan on returning to AOA Bar and Grill for a glass of wine and pizza one night. Overall I enjoyed the class and the price was well worth it. The only thing that disappointed me was the fact that we didn't make pizzas.

We made calzones instead. I do wish we were told that at the beginning of the class or it would have been helpful for this to be displayed as a disclaimer on the restaurants main site.

We did learn all of the necessary steps needed to make a pizza such as making the dough, kneading the dough, stretching it, tossing it, and how to prepare it for the oven.

I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome of my calzone and impressed that I was able to make dough from scratch. It's something I didn't think of ever doing. We learned how to make focaccia bread and garlic knots but we didn't put the garlic knots in the oven. Chef Robert Farley was adorable, very helpful, and gave anyone who needed special attention his time. There was a maximum of 30 attendees in the class and a lot of people came with friends or relatives so it was a friendly group of people to be around. I do see myself taking another cooking class. Maybe not another pizza (calzone) making class but I'm ready for another culinary experience. To view more photos from the pizza making class go to facebook and like my fan page
