About
Most trips to Italy involve plenty of pizza and cones of gelato but on this tour, you won’t just get to sample both specialties: learn how to make them (and will walk away with new skills). Class sizes are small, so you receive personal instruction from a trained Italian chef. Make pizza dough from scratch, learn gelato-making tips, and enjoy tastings of both at the end of your class.

Highlights
Receive personal instruction from a professional Italian chef
Enjoy pizza and gelato at the end of class, with wine or soft drinks
Take home a recipe booklet to try out your newfound skills
Learn about the history of pizza-making across Italy
What to expect
Your Italian culinary immersion begins in the afternoon or evening in central Florence, depending on the session you select. The class begins with an introduction to pizza in Italy, from its long history to its different regional varieties. Once you’ve learned all about Italy’s favorite dish, don your apron and hat and get cooking. Class sizes are kept small, so you receive personal attention from the chef. Learn how to make your own pizza dough from scratch, knead the dough, prepare traditional tomato sauce, and select your own toppings. As the dough rises, you also learn how to make gelato—Italy’s answer to ice cream, famous for its rich, ultra-creamy consistency. End your class with a meal: Eat the pizza you made from scratch and enjoy gelato for dessert, plus glasses of wine or soft drinks. A recipe booklet is also included so you can try out your new skills upon returning home.

Really great class! Well worth it
Jul 2021 • Family
What a wonderful experience!

Italian native Chef Caterina is funny, kind, engaging, and a master at her craft. She taught us her techniques and about the foods in a memorable way, with humor, stories, and professional demonstrations. She was encouraging and a wonderful teacher!

Thank you Chef Caterina and Florence Town for an amazing experience! We highly recommend making this a part of your visit to Florence.

Our Favorite Event in Florence
Jul 2021
Our family loved our two days in Florence, which was capped off by our cooking class with Caterina. She was engaging, funny and patient and entertained each of our 18, 16 and 13 year old children. She had a passion for traditional Italian cooking, particularly her family’s gelatoria. We had an outstanding time and good meal. We highly recommend making this class part of your Italian experience.

Family Fun!
Jun 2021 • Family
This class was so much fun and the highlight of our trip to Florence. We had 4 children with us (ages 11, 9, 7, and 5). Both Katarina and David were so patient and funny and really made the experience amazing. The best part, the pizza and gelato were so good! This class was equal parts fun and informative. I highly recommend this class if you can fit it into your trip!

Fantastic experience, excellent host!
Jan 2020 • Couples
Our experience with this workshop was top notch! The meet up point was easy to find, and the walk there was great. The quality of ingredients we were given was fantastic.

We found this to be a great opportunity to meet other people in the same situation as us and connect with others.

Making the food was fun (almost as fun as eating it!), But our host Caterina is who made this experience memorable. She was kind and witty and made all participants despite their skill level feel validated. You could tell she genuinely cares about you and wanted to connect.

We would highly recommend this activity to anyone who is in love with food, and is looking for an evening of fun and laughter!

So much fun learning how to make pizza and gelato. You get to put your own flavor on the pizza too. Great if you are by yourself, or with a small group.

Strange start but great family experience
Dec 2019
By strange start, I'll say that the meeting point for this tour was, by the account of our first guide (chef who met us) 10 minutes away. However, after an 18 minute walk (one of my daughters timed it) through the dark and crowded city with 25 people following her, we finally made it to our destination. Things looked up at that point and we had a great time, learning how to make our own dough and pizza. They were generous with the offerings of toppings, and generous with drinks as well, to include water, soft drinks and wine. While our dough rested, the Executive Chef demonstrated how to make gelato, which we had for dessert after we ate our pizza. Our family of five sat at our own table, which was pre-assigned, so there was no confusion. We thoroughly enjoyed this class!

Lots of fun
Dec 2019 • Family
My family and I really enjoyed our class. Marco (the teacher and chef) knew what he was doing and seemed to enjoy the class. Good teacher. He showed us how to make a pizza, then we made our own dough and put it aside while he showed us how to make gelato. We didn’t make our own gelato but we did learn how it’s made. After a bit, we finished making our pizzas. They cooked quickly, then we ate them and drank some wine and finished with gelato. The address we were given as a starting place didn’t exist, so we called the phone number provided and were directed to the correct location (just outside the Apple store). From there, we walked about 10 minutes to the cooking school (near San Lorenzo). Overall, a great memory.

Best cooking class ever.
Oct 2019 • Friends
This was so much fun. We used fresh ingredients right from the garden for our pizzas. Lucca and Luigi had us laughing so hard. The gelato was fun to make too. Our group made 12 different flavors of the gelato and we got to eat some of each flavor. We got to meet wonderful new friends and enjoy the fruits of or labor over looking the lights of the city. I highly recommend this tour.
