Become a “pizzaiolo” for a day, the real Italian pizza will have no more secrets for you
In Italy, cooking has always been fundamental. It is a ritual that cannot and must not be renounced, particularly in Rome whose specialties are famous all over the world and where everyone has their own recipes or well-kept secrets. But to learn at least the basics you need a cooking class.
Pizza, without a doubt, is a dish of the Italian culinary tradition that everyone agrees on. It is one of the most loved and eaten foods by Italians but also by foreigners, perhaps the most envied and imitated. It is a simple and tasty dish, easily made by everyone and perfect to eat anywhere. Whether it is the classic pizza bianca or with tomato sauce, chosen by the more traditionalists, or prepared with a special dough, such as with wholemeal, kamut or gluten-free flour, pizza is considered one of the most irresistible dishes.
How to cook your own Roman-style pizza from scratch
Round in shape to be enjoyed comfortably seated or “by the slice”, like the most practical of street food, you can enjoy pizza in different combinations of flavors, making it the perfect dish to share with your partner, friends, family or colleagues. Whether it’s a Margherita, Quattro Stagioni, or Ham and Mushroom, what really matters is the ritual of eating it together, perhaps exchanging slices.
Become the master of your future dinners by learning how to make pizza by yourself through one our cooking classes. An expert chef is there to answer your questions and above all to show you the procedure to follow, the different stages of preparation, as cooking requires skill. Once the small group of participants has assembled, you will no doubt be eager to start the session.
Under the guidance of a real “pizza-maker“, you will learn how to prepare the dough and roll it out with a rolling pin to create the base of your pizza before dressing it with your favorite ingredients: tomato sauce, mozzarella, olive oil, anchovies, mushrooms, ham, salty salami, olives, vegetables, and so on.
Finally, round off your private pizza making class by sitting back and dining on your magnificent culinary creations accompanied by appetizers and of course a good selection of Italian wines, beers and soft drinks.
We use only fresh, seasonal ingredients for you to adorn our pizzas so the variety of toppings we offer are those best suited for the season you are on visit, this means that no two cooking classes are the same, and everybody learns something different. So be creative!
