What You Can Expect

Experience Naples: Learn How to Make Authentic Neapolitan Pizza

Use Buffalo Mozarella and fresh tomatoes to make your Neapolitan Pizza!

Meet your host in central Naples and stroll to a nearby restaurant for your 1.5-hour pizza-making class. All utensils and equipment are provided for your session, and under the careful eye of your pizzaiolo (pizza maker), you’ll discover the culinary secrets behind making authentic Neapolitan pizza.

Naples has a refreshing keep-it-simple attitude when it comes to food, relying on the high quality of their local produce to make their dishes sing. Ruby red tomatoes, milky-fresh buffalo mozzarella, basil and DOP olive oils (Denominazione di Origine Protetta) are pizza restaurant staples, and you’ll use the best locally sourced ingredients such as these in your class.

Watch your pizzaiolo mix, knead and stretch the dough, then give it a go yourself! Neapolitan pizzas typically have doughier bases than their crispy Roman counterparts, and your pizzaiolo will explain how to get the dough worked to the right consistency. Choose from a selection of toppings, and then sit down while it bakes!

Relax with other food lovers in your group, chatting about pizza in Naples and enjoying a drink. Whet your appetite with a starter of bruschetta e zeppoline (seaweed bruschetta), then tuck into your very own Neapolitan pizza, before finishing with dolce del gioro with (dessert of the day). With this class under your belt, you’ll be able to easily make your own pizza again at home to impress your family and friends.

3 star rating: Worth doing July 2014

This experience was somewhat disappointing. The restaurant had made a mistake with our booking and, therefore, were not expecting us when we arrived. Therefore, nothing was prepared and we were left waiting for approximately 45 minutes whilst they sourced a translator since the pizza cook spoke little English. We got a demonstration of how to make the pizza disc from a ball of dough and then how to dress a basic Margarita with tomato puree and cheese. It wasn't very interesting or hands-on like we were expecting. The 2 demo pizzas were what we were given for dinner in addition to some fried snacks and a small creamy dessert. The staff were pleasant but the experience was disappointing.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better December 2013

The restaurant itself (which was an attempt at modern, absolutely no charm) was a 10-12 minute cab drive out of the city center in a less-than desirable neighborhood. We were ushered into the "kitchen" donned plastic aprons and were given balls of dough to press out. Then we chose toppings from bowls and the owner put the pizza into an oven for 3-4 minutes, then we ate the pizza. We were served plates of fried somethings and a beverage.

The folks tried to be pleasant with us but we learned nothing and felt awkward. This could have been a really neat experience; learning about foods and flavors and getting involved in the making of a local food. But it needs a vendor truly interested in helping others to learn rather than getting naive Americans into their restaurant for quite a bit of money for little or no value. We couldn't wait to get out.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this July 2013

I would give this a no star if possible. The tour was not as promised. We paid a lot of money to eat pizza and not learn anything. They did not start on time and were not ready for us and the hosts, although friendly, did not "teach" us anything as they spoke very little english.
