Pizza Making Class & Gelato | Shared
Why spend your time in Rome hunting down your perfect pizza or gelato when you can make both by yourself. We’ll cook up a storm either in our 17th-century palazzo behind Piazza Navona or our brand new cooking school a stone’s throw from the Pantheon.
We’ll make you feel at home by serving you local wine, prosecco, and snacks upon your arrival. Then you’ll learn to make Italian gelato and pizza in an elegant, historical setting.
What you’ll learn in the Pizza and Gelato making class
With our English-speaking Italian chef, learn the techniques of kneading the all-important pizza dough, as Italians have been doing for two centuries. Just don’t tell him pizza was created in Naples and not Rome! As you will see the typical Roman pizza is a bit different from the one you might taste in Naples. Our pizza has a smaller crust and it is famous for being crunchy and, obviously, super tasty.
We will start with the preparation of the dough, which will need some time to be ready. After this, you will be able to prepare your pizza by choosing amongst a variety of fresh ingredients.
Have fun choosing between deliciously salty Italian prosciutto or wonderfully fruity black olives. Decide if you want to keep things simple ‘Bianca’ without sauce, or add a rich tomato sauce for a pizza ‘Rosso’.
During the Pizza and Gelato cooking class, you will also learn how to prepare a perfect gelato. Gelato shops in Rome are amongst the best ones in the world and we will show you all the secrets that made the fortune of this beautiful dessert. Once you go back home you will be able to live again all the beautiful sensations you felt here in Rome while you were having a walk near the Colosseum tasting a fresh and sweet gelato.
And again, just pay attention to one important thing: do not mislead gelato and ice cream. It’s not the same thing and we can be very fussy about this. If you don’t know what the difference is you can read our blog post: Gelato vs. Ice Cream: What’s the Difference?

A great evening with plenty of incredible local food and drink and a really good way to meet and get to know other travellers. The small group size made it much more personal and conversation flowed all evening! Sara (our guide) was absolutely amazing - so friendly and chatty, and so full of knowledge about the local food and Rome/Trastevere's history. She could not have been better.
I'll be coming back to Rome and will definitely be booking this again. Thank you so much, Sara, for making my first trip to Rome that much better! read less

We got to try a ton of different food and even returned to one of the restaurants later in the week. The tour groups are kept small, so our group easily got to know each other throughout the tour. We were especially pleased with how accommodating it was: My fiance is a vegetarian and can be a bit of a picky eater, so he had low expectations going in and this ended up being his favorite activity all week! We actually had a couple of vegetarians in our group and there was always an equally hearty substitute whenever necessary. Super pleased with this experience and with Luca! Best part of our week! read less

This was a wonderful way to dive straight into Italian culture. I highly recommend this class as it was very intimate with the chef (only 3 couples) and one of the most memorable experiences from our trip. read less
