In this hands-on class, participants will learn to mix, shape, and bake naturally-leavened sourdough pizza in a home oven. Basic fundamental principles of baking with sourdough will be explained and each person will take home their own starter as well as pizza dough to bake at home. If you’ve been curious to try sourdough but are intimidated by bread baking, this is an excellent introductory class. Vegetarian pizza will be baked and served during class.
