Dewey's teaches tossing, topping at May 4 pizza school


Everyone is invited to learn to toss and top pies at the first Worthington Dewey's Pizza School.

From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday, May 4, the pizza lessons will be held behind the glass at Dewey's, 640 High St. in Worthington.

Cost will be $25 per person, with children ages 4 and younger admitted for free. Proceeds will benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio.

The price includes pizza-making lessons plus free pizza, salad and soft drinks. Alcohol and desserts will cost, but the money will go to the charity.

"Everyone gets to go back in the kitchen and make and then eat their own pizza," said Hayley Campbell, assistant general manager of the Worthington Dewey's. She also is the Worthington representative for the DewMore Initiative, which is the Dewey's philanthropic arm. All employees are encouraged to volunteer their time to the pizza schools and to other community-based causes.

"All of our cooks and servers are volunteers," Campbell said. "I'm very proud of them. They sign up right away when we have an event like this."

Another pizza school is planned for September. It will benefit the Worthington Food Pantry.

Registrations are limited to 90, and spots are filling up quickly, Campbell said Monday, April 28.

To register, visit Dewey's or call the store at 614-985-3333 and ask to speak with a manager.
