Hoxton Square’s Radio Alice will launch a series of weekly masterclasses in March, revealing the secrets to their take on the humble pizza. Hosted every Saturday afternoon around their open kitchen, Head Chef and co-founder Matteo Aloe will demonstrate how to create their pizza before guests turn their hand to the craft themselves.
With the belief that great pizza starts with a great sourdough base, Matteo will showcase the techniques and ingredients used to perfect a base that’s crispy outside and soft inside – from using wild yeast and ancient, stone ground flour to the slow and steady fermentation process, which takes over 24 hours. Matteo’s students will then have their pick of toppings from the pizzeria’s larder of the very best seasonal ingredients. Following the masterclass, guests will sit down to a veritable feast of pizza, organic wine and good company to while away a lazy Saturday afternoon.
“Our pizzas reflect our attitude, they’re honest and joyous and often capture our moods at the time of inception – if it feels right, it is right – so I’m really excited to see our students own interpretation on the Radio Alice pizza” says Matteo. “We want to share our attitude to pizza with as many Londoners as possible and we thought the best way would be to divulge our secrets over the kitchen counter with a glass of good wine or two, after all our best kept secret is that we have none!” says co-founder Salvatore.
Radio Alice’s pizza masterclasses will start from Saturday 18th March, every Saturday afternoon (excluding 1st April), 2pm – 4pm. Tickets are £15 and available to book by contacting Hoxton@radioalicepizzeria.co.uk
