Rather than quashing this uniquely American characteristic, the folks at Central Market (Greenville Avenue and Lovers Lane) are encouraging it, specifically in their Pizza: NY vs. Chicago cooking class (since when did versus become part of the lexicon of cuisine?). Take note: Theres more to pizza than just throwing around some dough and chunking some pineapples and ham on top. Nope, theres a number of varietiesNew York thin crust, Chicago deep dish, stuffed crust, calzonesand the CM cooking school staff will show you how to roll, toss, stuff and bake with the best of them, 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday. Fifty bucks will get your fingers in the dough and your dough in the air. Now go out and kick some ass! Call 214-361-5754 to register.
