Pizza Cooking Class


Learn how to make a traditional Italian pizza in the heart of the city of Verona with a professional chef.

Cooking classes are an occasion of conviviality, a time and place dedicated to reflecting upon the respect for the environment and better ways of creating and consuming to help create a more sustainable future. Food plays the central role in our existence, not only for its important nutrients but also for its symbolic and emotional value.

This is a hands-on pizza cooking class, directly in the kitchen of our Italian chef. She will teach you how to prepare the real Italian pizza so that you can impress guests back at home with your skills.

During the lesson we will prepare an Italian dessert, too!

After the lesson you will enjoy your lunch seated all together while sipping a good glass of Italian wine! Cheers!

    My (now) wife and I were visiting Verona with my two teenage children to get married. As we were visiting Italy for the first time I wanted to find experiences that were a little off the regular tourist track. On the day of the class we met Virginia in the centre of Verona. She walked us to the pizzeria providing a personal insight into the city as we went. Upon arriving at the pizzeria we were introduced to the chef - Antonio - and his staff. Following introductions we were provided with an apron each and the class began. Chef Antonio originates from Naples and was very knowledgeable as to the history of cooking in Naples and what it takes to make a good Neapolitan pizza. He took us through each step from mixing the basic ingredients, kneading the dough, proving the dough and finally dressing/cooking our pizzas. It was a hands-on experience! After our morning in the kitchen we got to enjoy a lunch of the pizzas we had made along with a glass of local wine. Highly recommendable!

    My sister and I are visiting Verona and thought it would be fun to take a cooking class. We booked it and Makela greeted us and took us to her home where we enjoyed preparing three different dishes (calzone, pizza, and tiramisu). Makela was so warm and welcoming and explained so much about Italian food and it’s regional dishes. With her guidance and fresh ingredients, all three dishes were delicious and enjoyed with local wine. A very fun time spent cooking, visiting and eating! Thank you, Makela, for a very memorable day!
