The Sustainable Kitchen: Wood Fired Pizza

This is a cooking class taught by the Conservatory’s Sustainability Educator, Heather Bell. As with all of the classes in The Sustainable Kitchen series, Heather will talk about sustainability in the kitchen and the small steps you can take to help the planet as she teaches you to cook something delicious.

Learn how to make Neopolitan pizza dough that is cracker-like on the outside but airy and soft on the inside. Students will also make tomato sauce for our pizzas, which will be topped with fresh mozzarella and vegetables. The next step is to cook the pizzas in the wood fire pizza oven at the Conservatory’s Live Fire Theater. Enjoy your customized hearth-baked pizza with a simple salad and a glass of wine.

Instructor: Heather Bell Heather Bell is the Sustainability Educator for Youth Programs at Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. Her degree is in Environment, Economy, Development, & Sustainability from OSU. While that's her first love, cooking and baking are her second. She started learning from the best: her great-grandmother. When she was 5 years old she baked her first apple pie and hasn’t stopped experimenting and learning. You’re invited to take a class with Heather where she’ll share her tips on adding that “chefy” spin to a meal with a touch of sustainability.
