Objectives and Goals

Cooking for yourself does not have to be boring or mentally exhausting.  Consumers will lean to make a delicious and nutritious Mexican Pizza right at home.


Instructor will sit down with participants and review recipe and give instructions.  After instructions are given they will have an opportunity to go in to kitchen and try to make a Mexican Pizza with supervision.
