Pizza a Casa’s Mark Bello’s Advice on What to Do With Warm Beer: Make Dough


Pizza a Casa is launching a new class aimed at kids called Big Cheese Little Cheese, just in time for Father’s Day. The first one is this Sunday, and costs $195 for an adult-child pair (the usual cost is $150 per person). Founder Mark Bello says the kids’ class will likely return a few times per year, depending on how successful the first one is. Sure, baking pies with the little ones sounds like fun, but maybe Dad would prefer Bello’s other idea: Make your dough with beer. Although it’s not part of his official recipe, the pizza-making teacher says you can easily replace the cup and a half of warm water with warm beer. Hey, what else are you going to do with tepid suds?
