Overview
Most trips to Italy involve plenty of pizza and cones of gelato but on this tour, you won’t just get to sample both specialties: You’ll learn how to make them (and will walk away with new skills). Class sizes are small, so you’ll receive personal instruction from a trained Italian chef. Make pizza dough from scratch, learn gelato-making tips, and enjoy tastings of both at the end of your class.
What to Expect
Your Italian culinary immersion begins in the afternoon or evening in central Florence, depending on the session you select. The class begins with an introduction to pizza in Italy, from its long history to its different regional varieties.
Once you’ve learned all about Italy’s favorite dish, don your apron and hat and get cooking. Class sizes are kept small, so you’ll receive personal attention from the chef. Learn how to make your own pizza dough from scratch, knead the dough, prepare traditional tomato sauce, and select your own toppings.
As the dough rises, you’ll also learn how to make gelato—Italy’s answer to ice cream, famous for its rich, ultra-creamy consistency.
End your class with a meal: Eat the pizza you made from scratch and enjoy gelato for dessert, plus glasses of wine or soft drinks. A recipe booklet is also included so you can try out your new skills upon returning home.

We had a fantastic time learning about gelato and pizza. From history and cooking to finding the best gelato in Florence, this class was everything we’d hoped for and more. Highly recommend!

Great cooking class! Bus picks you up in Florence and drives you to a farm house overlooking the country side. Matteo was our chef and was very knowledgeable and fun! Cooking class was small (10 people max) which was great. Very fun!More
