Pizza Workshop at Pizza e Musica!

pizzashop-1On Tuesday evening, Prof. Zachary Nowak of the Food Studies Program and neopolitan pizzaiolo Felice once again took students into hidden local pizzeria Pizza e musica to help explain the history and significance of Italian pizza. After a quick tour of the pizzeria’s surroundings – it used to be a convent and still has many artifacts integrated into the building – they got down to business, learning about how the Margherita pizza got its name, how the dough rises, and how a pizzaiolo stokes and manages the pizza oven.

Several lucky students got to stretch, dress, and cook their own pizzas, using the long padella to slide the pizza into the oven, rotate it, and pull out the piping-hot final product. Finally, of course, everyone got their own pizza from Felice’s expert hands and sat down to eat, talk, and enjoy a true Italian experience.
