Such a fun class, I would definitely do this again. The dish turned out amazing, I can’t wait to make it again. I think the key is to make sure you do all of the recommended prep work ahead of time. It made the instruction go smoothly. Highly recommended!!

Great class! I learned what I was doing wrong when I tried to make pizza on my own. The instructor had a lot of knowledge and listened and answered everyone's questions.
