Learn how to make traditional Italian pizza and gelato on this 3-hour cooking class in Florence. Led by a chef, sample a variety of flavors before getting to work on your own creations. Afterward, bring home your newfound skills in the kitchen to impress your friends. This class is limited to 25 people to ensure you receive personal attention from your instructor.
  • Make your own Italian pizza and gelato in this Florence cooking class
  • Sample a variety of different pizzas and gelato flavors
  • Learn tips and traditional Italian culinary methods from a professional chef
Watch how to make the two most important food groups – pizza and ice cream – with this Florence cooking class.
As you get started with your chef, learn about the history of pizza-making in Italy, and the distinct characteristics between pies from each Italian region. Sample an array of pizza flavors as you go and then throw your own creation in the oven to bake.
Continue with a lesson in dessert, as you receive instruction on crafting traditional Italian gelato. While this sweet treat does share similarities to ice cream found in other countries, it typically has a lower amount of butterfat and a unique freezing process that accounts for its dense, flavorful consistency. As your instructor shows you the secrets of the trade, enjoy plenty of samples to satisfy your sweet tooth.
After your class concludes, take home your insider’s tips from your chef to impress your friends in the kitchen.

This was soooo much fun! We had great fun learning how to make pizza and gelato - with a ton of tips we plan to share at home with our family when we have our own pizza and gelato night. Our chef, Giuseppe, walked us through everything, with clear instructions. And the pizza was delicious!!

This was a fun way to experience Italian food with kids... getting your hands dirty and filling your belly with good food. Niccolo and Martina I hope I got that right did a great job demonstrating and also providing little tips for making our pizzas at home even better.

Nice course.
Good food's
Good teachers.
The only downside was, that acoustic in the room was not so good, so it was sometimes difficult to hear what they told us

We took the pizza and gelato making class during our recent trip to Florence. We had a great experience. The instructor was very patient and helpful. Everything was well organized and easy to follow along in spite of the fact my sons didn’t have a lot of cooking experience. My two teenage sons absolutely loved the class. In fact, they both said it was the best part of our trip. Our instructor even gave us tips on what to look for when buying gelato at a gelateria. I also liked the fact that the class wasn’t too large making it a more intimate setting.I highly recommend this as a fun hands-on activity to do with the family.
