Summer School: Pizza Tossing

Sage Van Wing
Dough awaits the transformation to pizza at Pizza On Earth in Charlotte.

Pizza is an American tradition like ice cream and apple pie, or hot dogs at baseball games. Most of us order a pie when we don’t feel like cooking, but it turns out pizza can be pretty fun and easy to make at home. As long as you get the dough right.

For a Summer School lesson in how to make pizza dough, we met up with Jay Vogler, owner of Pizza On Earth. He serves wood-fired pizza on Thursdays and Fridays throughout the summer at his Charlotte farm.
