What you'll learn in this pizza making class:

This course is designed for all pizza lovers who want to learn how to make a pizza at home and cook it in the kitchen or in an outside wood-burning oven.

This course is not recommended to people who want to learn to make pizzas for professional use.

The program is divided in 2 periods:

1– Theoretical period.

The 30 minutes period aims to furnish the student with an essential knowledge of the ingredients of the Neapolitan pizza (flour, plum tomatoes, extra–virgin olive oil and cheeses) and the basic equipment used to prepare and cook the pizza.

2– Practical period.
The 5.5 hours training will be focused on:

  1. Turning on the oven, learning how to bring it to proper temperature and how to maintain it during baking.
  2. Preparing the dough by hand following the recipe.
  3. Leavening of the dough.
  4. Cutting, shaping and forming of the balls.
  5. Stretching and opening the dough with the proper technique to form the disc.
  6. Putting the toppings.
  7. Cooking and managing the pizza in the oven (choosing the proper timing and temperature and the right tools)
  8. Preparing the Classical Neapolitan Pizzas (Marinara, Margherita) and other pizzas with typical Neapolitan traditional topping.

At the end of the period, you will receive a certificate of completion of the course and a VPN gift bag that will include:

  • 1 bag of "00" flour.
  • 1 can of Italian peeled tomato.
  • 1 small bottle of Extra Virgin Olive oil


  • 1 T-shirt
  • 1 apron

Thoroughly enjoyed the day! I purchased the class as a gift for my husband who had built his dream pizza oven. Very informative and hands on - the only negative was we probably gained 5 lbs from all the pizza we ate!
