Teglia Romana - Toronto - Oct 1/2

10:00-3:00 Each Day


The Pizza "Teglia Romana" (Roman pan pizza), also know as: “al taglio”. Originating in Rome, this pizza is made using high hydration dough stretched across a long rectangular steel pan. Created to be a fast-food, this pizza is ideal for fast takeout, and eaten immediately. It also tastes great after being reheated later, which is perfect for restaurants and patrons alike. 

This two day course will teach participants how to make the high hydration dough used for Teglia Romana style pizza. They will learn how to spread the dough across a pan for baking, select toppings, and of course, try out their culinary creations.
