Jamestown, N.Y. – At Audubon Exclusives Pizza Making Party, Brenda Schnick will teach you how to make thin crust Sicilian style pizza using many locally produced ingredients.
The event will be in the new showroom demonstration area at Jamestown Kitchen and Bath, 1085 East 2nd Street on Sunday, April 15, 2-6 p.m.
Audubon Exclusives are distinctive opportunities and unusual experiences offered by Audubon board members and dedicated supporters to help fund Audubon Community Nature Center.
Schnick will teach party goers how to make their own one-hour pizza dough, use a pizza peel and stone, and discover the secret to getting a crispy crust. There will be up to four pizzas to sample, and everyone will have a dough to take with them to use later in the week. The recipes use simple local ingredients so that pizza can easily be made at home.
Participants will make both meat lovers and vegetarian pizzas. Jamestown Kitchen and Bath has generously agreed to supply wine to sample with the pizza (for over 21 only). Dress is casual, and participants are asked to bring an apron to wear, a large bowl and spoon to make their dough, and a hearty appetite.
Schnick’s part-Italian husband grew up on the South Side of Chicago. When they moved from Chicago to Warren 20 years ago, he couldn’t find a pizza to compare with Little Jim’s (since closed) where his family always ordered their thin crust pizza. After extensive experimentation with all kinds of Chicago deep dish as well as thin crust pizza recipes, Schnick finally created her own Little Jim’s recipe that she will share with party-goers.

Cost is $50, and space is limited to eight guests. Reservations are required by Sunday, April 8, and can be made online through the Programs page at auduboncnc.org.
