Creating a meal from scratch is both challenging and delicious, much like licking a hundred stamps or playing "Stairway to Heaven" on a clarinet made out of a candy cane. Reap the fruits of your labor with today's Groupon: for $75, you get admission to a two-hour Pizza-Making 101 class at Slice, The Perfect Food, valid at the West Village location (a $150 value). This deal is only valid for classes scheduled on Sundays from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. until Labor Day. After Labor Day, it is valid Wednesdays from 8 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. or Sunday from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Under the tutelage of an alumnus of the French Culinary Institute, culinary apprentices craft homemade, wholesome pizza with organic ingredients in Slice's two-hour pizza-making class. The lesson unfolds with the cheese-flecked history of pizza, incorporating fun visuals and a quiz on the Earl of Tomato's tempestuous life. Students then create healthy dough from a wholesome blend of whole wheat and unbleached flour before embarking on a salubrious sauce mission, where they infuse the tomato blanket with fresh carrots and onions for natural sweetening. Knuckles do the nitty-gritty kneading, spreading the doughy interface and dousing it with creative toppings such as vegetables or invisible pieces of unicorn steak.
Hardworking handcrafters can sip on local New York–state wine that plays well with pizza, and nosh on an array of appetizers and signature-craft pizza dishes. Slice spreads the culinary love by donating a free pizza-making class to a child at Hunts Point Alliance for every paying client that signs up.
