Flying Aprons Pizza Class

Flying Aprons, Tucson's own teacher-chefs, are hosting an event where you can learn about pizzas inside and out: forming crusts, balancing flavors, and even using a pizza peel and pizza stone. Flying Aprons is partnering with Zio Peppe owner and pizza master Mat Cable (interviewed on page 12), who will discuss his special ready-to-go dough. According to Flying Aprons, the class also includes making a fresh mozzarella and sauce. Topping options range from basil for a classic Pizza Margherita to pepperoni, olives, mushrooms, sausage, peppers to pineapple and ham. Tuesday, May 25, 5:30 – 7 p.m. $40. flyingapronstucson.com/event/zoom-class-pizza-with-chef-mat-cable/
