Today, Italians make variety of pizzas from different regions. While toppings and cheeses may vary from region to region, the culinary rule of using fresh, local ingredients remains the same throughout the country. This cooking class will give you the opportunity to create and bake your own Italian pizza.
Then it’s on to dessert, as you learn how to make authentic Italian gelato. While similar to ice cream found elsewhere in the world, gelato does have some differences, including a generally lower butterfat content and a freezing process that creates a denser, more flavorful product. During the cooking class, you will learn the process of making gelato, tasting the creations as you go.
As you are guided through the stages of both pizza- and gelato-making with a professional chef, you’ll learn valuable tips and hints that you can take home for future cooking. Impress your friends after your trip with your newfound Italian cooking skills!

We were in Florence with our children ages 11,13,16 and looking for more active experience to mix things up. Tried this class and were very happy with everything. The groups ranged from couple to extended families, the pace of the instruction was great, and the teachers had wonderful personalities. The kids and my husband and I loved the experience. Good family fun- we will be making pizza homemade now!

Our guide, Daniel, was charming and entertaining--as well as very skilled--as he took us through the process of making a pizza from the point of dry flour to hot bubbling cheese coming out of the oven. And while our doughs were rising under a wet cloth, he took us also through the process of making a lovely chocolate gelato. Our kids, aged 9 and 11, came along and also found the whole experience delightful. Daniel was equally good with adults and kids, as he was both informative and entertaining. The whole experience was a welcome respite/retreat from several days wandering the hot summer streets of Italian cities. Our pizza, of course, wasn't as good as what we've found in the great restaurants of Florence, but it was so much more satisfying to have made it ourselves!
