Pizza-making class in Italy: learn how to make Pizza and Gelato just like the Italians!

"Italians do it better"... certainly true if we're talking about tasty, flavorful pizza and, ohhh, creamy gelato. During our gelato and pizza-making class in Italy, you will learn to master the most delicious of all Italian arts from the pros. Discover the tricks of the trade and make authentic, genuine pizza and gelato! Meet our expert "pizzaiolo", he will illustrate and demonstrate, the secrets which lie behind the picture-perfect, scrumptious pizza.

During this pizza course in Florence, our chef will show you how to make pliable paper-thin yeast dough, kneading it to perfection. He will give you tips on how to prepare a zesty, yet light tomato sauce to spread on top. Aprons on: it's your turn to mold and roll, season and flavor to taste, bake, and finally relish the unique taste of the best pizza you've ever had, the one you made yourself! Then on you go, time for dessert with your gelato-making class. Hear all about the history and tradition of Italian ice cream. Discover the raw ingredients, learn where the best are produced and what natural colors can be used by our entertaining and knowledgeable chef. You'll get to know about the heating and freezing techniques, and, of course, give your taste buds a real treat tasting exquisite artisan-made gelato.

At the end of our pizza-making class, you will receive a Recipe Booklet. It will be indispensable when you decide to share the experience with your friends and family once you are back home.
