Black Truffle Margherita Pizza On-Demand Class

Hosted by Chef Tucker Ricchio

LET'S GET COOKING!

We're making a delicious, New York-style pizza with fresh heirloom tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, and our signature truffle tomato sauce. You’ll learn essential knife skills, how to make pizza dough from scratch, and a great go-to pizza recipe (make sure to take your new skills and get creative with toppings for the future!). Click the links to the left for the recipe, shopping list, and culinary tips from the Chef for helpful tips & tricks before you get started.

(P.S. Don't forget to start your dough 24 hours before making your pizza! Check out the homework video to learn how.)

1. You need to knead! Kneading develops the gluten in your dough, which makes it stronger and better able to stretch as it rises. 

2. When hydrating the yeast, make sure the water is warm, not hot or cold. Cold water doesn’t quite wake the yeast up, but hot water kills it!   

3. Make sure to remove the dough from your refrigerator before class, so it has enough time to rest and relax. This will make it easier to stretch.

4. Don’t forget to move your oven rack before preheating! We want to mimic a wood-fired oven, and this ensures your pizza will cook at a higher temperature.

Tucker Ricchio

Truffle Shuffle Chef Instructor

Chef Tucker Ricchio first fell in love with cooking while helping her Nonna make fresh pasta and lasagna as a young girl. After graduating with a double bachelor’s degree, she decided to pursue her dreams of becoming a Chef and received her formal culinary education from Le Cordon Bleu. Aside from her Nonna, she credits her culinary skills to Chef Suzette Gresham, who mentored her from Butcher to Sous Chef at her Michelin-starred restaurant, Acquerello. Ricchio loves sharing her passion for food (and truffles!) with her Truffle Shuffle students, and strives to pass along the tips and tricks she’s learned from her years in kitchens, with the goal of giving her students the tools they need to cook like professional chefs at home.
