In this class, you’ll craft your own whole wheat pizza dough using local beer, top it with fresh meat and produce from Suzie’s Farm, and cook it to perfection in a wood-fired oven. The workshop includes hands-on instruction from culinary expert Jenn Felmley, as well as a tour of the farm.

      Use local beer, fresh meat, and fresh produce to craft your own whole wheat, wood-fired pizza

      * Tour Suzie’s Farm

      Admire the bucolic grounds, fresh seasonal produce, and free-range flocks of the 140-acre farm

      * Bolster Your Recipe Book

      Depart with new, creative ways to incorporate delicious ingredients into pizza recipes

      Each event is capped at 20 participants; each event requires a minimum of 14 participants in order to take place.
