Tour description

Discover the secrets of pizza with an expert pizzaiolo to lead the way.

Take your pizza obsession to the next level in this Rome pizza making class led by a professional Italian chef. You'll craft the perfect pizza in our very own state-of-the-art cooking space in Trastevere complete with all the comforts of a traditional Italian kitchen. As you knead and stretch the dough, sprinkle on your favorite toppings, and so much more, you’ll discover a side of this beloved dish that most visitors to Rome never get to experience.

Enjoy a classic Italian aperitif to begin your Rome pizza making class in style.

Your experience begins in a lively piazza in Trastevere, where you’ll meet your chef-instructor and small group. Enjoy a short stroll through the vibrant neighborhood to our exclusive private cooking space, which beautifully blends contemporary comforts with the charm of a traditional Italian kitchen.

Upon arrival, you’ll enjoy a welcome aperitif of bruschetta paired with a spritz. Your instructor will start your Rome pizza making class by walking you through the time-honored craft of pizza dough: how to hydrate it, what type of flour to use, and more.

Get a crash course in all things dough, toppings, and gelato.

With the basics of dough now under your belt, it's time to grab an apron and dive in! Working with one or two other aspiring pizza chefs, you’ll begin crafting your dough from scratch.

But the fun doesn’t just stop at pizza. Leaving the dough to start rising, you’ll take a break from the cooking for a few minutes to watch your instructor prepare homemade gelato from scratch. Craving Italy’s most beloved sweet treat already? No worries—you’ll enjoy it later after your pizza for dessert.

In the meantime, you’ll get back to the pizza. Your chef will show you how to stretch the dough, add the sauce, and sprinkle on your favorite toppings. Then all that’s left to do is pop it in the oven, and dinner is served!

Sit down and enjoy a homemade Italian meal with new friends.

Wrap up your Rome pizza making class in the style of all great evenings in Italy: gathered around a table with great food, wine, and company. Enjoy your homemade pizza and cap it all off with the gelato your chef prepared earlier for the perfect Italian dessert.

By the time you part ways, you’ll have taken your love of pizza to the next level by creating it for yourself. Not every visitor to Italy will get to experience the nation’s beloved cuisine in such a hands-on way, but you’ll have done so while making memories that will last for years to come.

The pizza making experience was SO fun! The guides were amazing and entertaining, the knowledge shared was priceless, and the food was delicious! We can’t wait to try the recipe at home in our outdoor woodfired pizza oven. I hope to take the class again when I’m back in April!

This is a very interesting experience for travellers that come to Rome and want to learn how to prepare, make and cook the pizza from real experts. 100% recommended. Wonderful team building experience, we really enjoyed Roberto and her 2 colleagues teaching us how to make the dough of the pizza, being so precise in explaining all the steps. We were able to make our own pizza, put the toppings, sauces, condiments of our choice, then cook it. All of my team enjoyed the experience, along with the venue with music, drinks and appetizers available while preparing our own pizza.
