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).
