Pizza Dough Making Event 10/11

On Wednesday, October 11th, our meeting focused on pizza dough making and the origins of pizza.  Students were able to make their own pizza dough while learning facts about pizza. 

Here are some pictures from the meeting:

Some fun facts about pizza:
The traditional pizza Margherita was named after the Queen Margherita in the 1880's/1890's.  La Margherita is representative of the colors of the Italian flag with green being the basil, white being the mozzarella di bufala and the red being the tomato sauce.

The recipe for making pizza dough is very easy:

    • 3/4 cup water (preferably warm water 105 F to 115 F)
    • 1 envelope active dry yeast
    • 2 cups (or more) all purpose flour
    • 3/4 teaspoon salt
