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.

Excellent experience would highly recommend! We learnt how to make pizza and gelato under the guided supervision of David and Gusieppie. The great part is eating it whilst meeting new people from other parts of the world!- lots of fun!

We really had a great time. The instructors were a lot of fun and we met really nice people in our group. Our family of five children are 21, 16 and 13 all loved this.

We were a party of 4 and joined by 3 others, so just 7 of us for a mid December class. Davide was a great teacher and had lots of patience.

You MUST do this! It was the very first thing I did when I visited Florence and it was a blast! You will meet different people from different places and get your hands/apron dirty making pizza and gelato. The facilitator/Chef Giuseppe was AWESOME! He was knowledgeable, helpful, and funny....very much a personality that helped make the evening enjoyable. Definitely add this to your list of things to do.

This was so much fun! The chef was a great personality, everyone in the class seemed to be having a blast! He pulled the kids to the front to make the gelato after we had all made our own pizza, our son was smiling ear to ear. We really enjoy cooking at home and this was a great tutorial on making perfect pizza crust. Different from the typical tourist stuff and really worth your time if you like to cook!

We are a Canadian family with three children ages 7, 9, 12 and I can say, without hesitation, that this was a highlight of our time in Florence. The kids LOVED it and we did too. Florenzo and Alex Alessandro did a wonderful job of keeping everyone engaged, amused and interested. They catered the information to both the children and the adults with good humour and lots of simple instruction. Our kids loved making their own pizzas and gelato and we left with very full tummies. In fact, it was the best pizza that we've eaten in Italy so far if I do say so myself. This is great value - a 3 hours class, great instructors, a full meal with wine tasting and dessert and a recipe book and 'diploma' to take away with you. You won't regret it...this is good times.

We had Alex as our training chef. He was GREAT -- smart, funny, and delightful. My daughter 13 years old and I took the class together and had such a great time and a GREAT meal as a result. Highly recommend.
