Make Pizza and Flatbread From Scratch
Pizza base, flatbreads, naan, gozleme, calzone, pork buns, they are all a variation on a theme that starts with just a little dough. This session could be the start of a journey of you becoming a master pizza or bread maker.
A CooksClub Experience is a cooking activity where the emphasis is on fun and social engagement. It is a great session to share with friends, as part of your own cooking club. You learn new things while adding to your food repertoire.
In this session we create a classic pizza margherita as well as flatbread with hummus.
We discover the secrets to making a nice soft dough. How to work the dough to manage the air inside, and create a wonderful pizza base.
While our dough is proofing, we prepare a classic pizza sauce and consider and prep some flavour options. We also make a hummus, just because it tastes so good with flatbread. Hummus is a great food accompaniment for meals as well as a go-to dish for entertaining.
We then look at our pizza topping options. This is where people’s individual creativity can kick in. While is great debate around what can and cannot go on a pizza, we simply consider why you put the things you do on your pizza.
To create a great pizza, we look to create specific tastes. You can make a pizza with a meal in every slice, or apply the “less is more” principle and create delicious, light slices of heaven.
You will receive some menus once you book, so you can make sure you have your favourite toppings at hand. Think about what you like; pepperoni, prawns, basil, roast capsicum, spanish onions, olives.
The great thing about making dough is, you make it for dinner Sunday night, keep it in the fridge and it’s great for a quick meal Wednesday, it’s still good for Friday night’s pizza or flatbreads and dip for next Saturday’s barbeque. Dough made with flour, yeast and water is actually at its best after a few days, and it keeps in the fridge for around a week.
Making dough opens a new door in your culinary independence.
