To the Editor,

Pizza...flour, water, and tomatoes. Sounds simple? It happens to be a serious dish if made properly.

Leo, at La Toscanella is willing to show us the right way to make this large circle of flat bread. His pies are made from the most popular margherita-style to the very different chicken caesar. The tastes are so satisfying, you never leave the crust over, like many people do. After having my two slices I walk about 10 feet to the bakery counter. Have I just arrived in my old neighborhoods pastry shop in Brooklyn? My selection is pignoli cookies, cannoli and sfogliatelle (I’ll buy you that one if you could pronounce it). Along side these rare Italian finds are also breads, rolls, cupcakes and huge chocolate chip cookies. Glennice, Leos wife bakes them all.

This man and wife team gives the word homemade a new meaning. All they need is an espresso machine to end my delightful meal with a demitasse. So my friends, whoever would like to learn the art of making pizza, Leo will be giving a class on Wednesday, May 24, at 5 pm, at La Toscanella.
