Florence Cooking Class: Learn How to Make Gelato and Pizza

Florence Cooking Class

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 SO fun! We really enjoyed the atmosphere and Davide was such a great instructor. Definitely would recommend doing some sort of cooking class while in Florence, but we did especially enjoy this one!

Fantastic experience!!! Lorenzo, our tour guide was prompt, and friendly. He took us on a quick walking tour through the city, and brought us to Davide's kitchen. Davide was an excellent host. He taught us the secrets to making a delicious pizza, and then put our knowledge to the test. We started by creating the dough, and while we let it rise, we made a chocolate base for our gelato. Once the gelato base was ready and poured into the gelato maker, we returned to our rising dough, and stretched it to the perfect size and dressed it with herbs, sauce, and various meats and cheese to our taste. The best part of the class was when our pizzas came out of the oven, and we got to eat them! For dessert, we ate the gelato we had created earlier. Delicious!
Overall, this was a very enjoyable experience, and is one I would highly recommend, and would even do it again.

Our family of 4 (two daughter (14 and 17) attended the cooking class and we all had a great time. Short walk from the meeting point, the chefs were wonderful and entertaining and we actually learned hands-on how to make great pizza dough for our own pizzas. Gelato was less hands-on but great as well!!

The Gelato and Pizza making course was excellent. Paola and Lorenzo were wonderful and the course was such fun. We went with our two girls 7 and 10 who became Paola's sous chef for the Gelato making, this made their holiday! Paola was lovely, a great chef and she gave us lots of great tips and information, Lorenzo was so friendly and very welcoming, a great pair thank you so much.

This was a highlight of our trip to Italy. I wanted to take a cooking class and knew that pizza and gelato would be a hit with my family 2 adults, 2 kids age 20 and 16. We all enjoyed the class, the pizza and the gelato. We also enjoyed talking with the other people in the class. We are looking forward to trying our new recipes at home!

This was an awesome experience and I highly recommend a cooking class during your trip to Florence. After we did this pizza/gelato class we tried to book a different one but they were all filled up. My 7 year old nephew loved the class, and it was his favorite day of the entire trip. My parents, and my husband also really enjoyed. It was definitely one the highlights of our trip as well. The cook was awesome and friendly and funny.

Our family of four had such a good time! Giuseppe involved out two girls 6 and 4 in the Gelato making process and although shy at first, they absolutely loved it. The class is informative, yet, very relaxed and heaps of fun. What a great way to spend an evening!
