Our pizza making class Naples is a total immersion!  Participants will learn how to mix the dough from scratch while discovering tips on making the perfect pizza. After you’ve mixed the ingredients into a perfect dough, learn the correct way to knead and leave your dough to rise.  Next, you’ll learn to “drive the dough” into the perfect round – it takes practice – and your pizzaiolo will show you how.

Be An Italian Pizzaiolo For a Day! –

Food Lover’s Tour In Naples & 1-Day Pizza Making Class

Meet your guide and experience our authentic Food Lover’s Market Tour in Bella Napoli.  Start your morning off with a Neapolitan coffee and pastry, in one of most historical caffès in Naples. You will learn about the history and origins of this city’s most exquisite pastries and cakes, including the sfogliatella. This treasured pastry was first made by mistake in a monastery. Learn how Italians order their caffè, from espresso to cappuccino, macchiato to corretto and soon you’ll be ordering like a local.

Following your introduction to Neapolitan desserts and coffee, your English-speaking guide will lead you to Teatro San Carlo, Galleria Umberto, Castel Nuovo and then to the Church of St. Ferdinand. During the tour, we will take time out for an aperitivo and taralli, a traditional Neapolitan snack along the way. Sip, swirl and enjoy the local atmosphere. Following the break, we’ll continue along to via Toledo and on to the pizzeria. Here, step into the kitchen, tie on your apron and learn how to make the perfect pie in our hands-on cooking class.
