Overview

Learn how to make a real Neapolitan pie with this 1.5-hour pizza-making class. Discover the tricks of the trade from an expert pizzaiolo (pizza maker), mixing and kneading your own dough and selecting fresh ingredients for your toppings. Afterward, reap the benefits of your hard work and sit down with your group to eat your creation. Enjoy a soft drink, starter and dessert to complement your pizza. Buon appetito!
  • 1.5-hour pizza-making class and meal in Naples, the birthplace of pizza
  • Learn the secrets of sumptuous Neapolitan pizzas from an expert local pizzaiolo
  • Mix and knead the pizza dough with your hands
  • Top your pizza with quality local ingredients like buffalo mozzarella and chorizo
  • Enjoy your pizza accompanied by a starter, dessert and drinks
After joining up with your guide in central Naples, head to a nearby restaurant for your cooking experience. Make your way to the kitchen, roll up your sleeves and hear the secrets behind the city’s beloved dish from your expert pizzaiolo.

Begin with the dough, mixing, kneading and stretching under the helpful guidance of your instructor. Unlike the Florentines up north, Neapolitan pizzas typically have thicker, doughier bases. Learn exactly how to create the right consistency to give it that soft, southern effect.

Then, choose your toppings. Naples has a less-is-more approach when it comes to their trademark dishes, relying on the high quality of their local produce to bring out the flavor. Fresh basil, tomatoes, soft mozzarella di buffalo cheese and rich olive oils are pizza staples down here, and you’ll use these ingredients to give your pie the full Italian treatment.

Stick your pizza in the oven and relax with your fellow foodies while it bakes. Enjoy an included soft drink and bruschetta appetizer before digging into your own piping hot pizza. Top it all off with a dolce del giorno (dessert of the day).

The chef did not speak English which we did not mind...however the driver was our interpretor and he was difficult to understand. The class was fun...the chef was awsome!

This was amazing !!

We are a couple. We wanted to discover the real italian cooking.

We chose this experience for the amazing review and we were not disappointed at all.
A driver picked us in the town, to drive us to the pizzeria. This is a new building on the East of the town, big and really cute.

They welcomed us with drinks and appetizer. We met Armando the cooker who told us Neapolitan pizza's story. He made in front of us the typical pizza and we savored it. He had troubles to speak English but the driver stayed with us to translate.
From theory to practice, we made our own pizza! Delicious!

That was really fun, Armando was charming and we had a wonderful time.
After the lesson we could enjoy our pizza in the restaurant. They offered us the dessert traditional Baba

That was a really good time, thank you.
I juste have an advice : don't eat too much for the breakfast !!

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy! We were picked up by Gianni(sp?), even though we didn't pay for transportation(I think it was because the restaurant was so far away from city center). He spoke great English, which was fantastic since our Italian was not very good. We picked up one other couple and went to a very modern restaurant(I think it was called Showtime) in an industrial district. We were served a plate of appetizers and some sort of fruity drink, all of which was great. When it came time for our lesson, we were greeted by Antonio, who was the pizziaolo. He spoke no English, but Gianni translated for us. He is a 3rd generation pizza maker, knew all of the history. He showed up how to make the dough, but we used dough he had already prepared when it came time to make our own, because it takes the dough 24 hours to be ready for use. We did everything, from stretching our own dough, putting on our toppings, to sliding it on the pizza peel. When they came out of the wood fired oven, WOW! We were seated in the restaurant, given a glass of wine and left to enjoy the fruits of our labor. Afterwards, we were given a very tasty chocolate cake. Afterwards, Gianni dropped us off where we wanted. The only down side is, now that we're back in the States, all the pizza is terrible.

This was an amazingly fun experience for both the adults and the teens in our group! The staff was so warm and accommodating! HOW IT WORKED: We were picked up near our Airbnb and driven to a beautiful restaurant where the class was hosted. We were greeted by the host and the staff immediately. The host shared a bit of history about pizza and a few fun facts about Naples, while the wait staff served us small bites, drinks and fresh buffalo mozzarella balls. So yummy! Afterwhich, we were able to flatten our dough and create our pizzas. The staff then placed the pizza on the long stemmed, wooden spatula type thing and cooked the pizzas (right in front of us) in the old school fire ovens. It was neat to watch. The pizza literally cooks in less than 2mins! After everyone made their pizzas, we feasted on our pizzas. They even served us (the adults) wine and surprised us all with delish desserts at no additional charge. It was a perfect way to end our first night in Naples! We definitely recommend this class!

Eating pizza in Naples is one thing but making your own is definitely a unique experience! I had the chance to make pizza one-on-one with a very friendly pizzaiolo at Annarè Trattoria Pizzeria in Piazza del Gesu Nuovo. When I arrived I was greeted by a very friendly waitress who spoke good English and poured me a glass of Prosecco as an aperitif. The private lesson started at 1830 and lasted for approximately 30 minutes. In that time, the pizzaiolo demonstrated how to make a pizza, shared his recipe for the dough and margherita pizza toppings, and then allowed me to make my own pizza. Of course, eating the pizza was the next best part flanked by an antipasto of bruschetta and coccoli and a dessert of pasteria. Overall, an excellent way to spend the first evening in Naples!

We had a great experience learning how to make authentic Neapolitan Pizza. The restaurant was extremely friendly, the pizza maker was very nice and super informative we learned a lot!. It was a fantastic hands on experience and getting to eat your pizza making was wonderful! The tiramisu dessert at the end was the best we've ever had! Best for small groups 4 or less.
