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?

I had a great time and was very impressed with how easy and how delicious our pizza and gelato turned out. Chef Roberto was very welcoming of us into his home and provided an amazing experience. I went solo and the rest of the class was a family celebrating one of their son's birthday. They were a delight to share the class with and couldn't have been nicer to make sure I felt included in the class. Great experience that I highly recommend! read less
