Florence Cooking Class: Learn How to Make Gelato and Pizza

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Combine your love of pizza and gelato (an Italian version of ice cream) with a unique cooking class in beautiful Florence. Learn how to cook an authentic Italian pizza with a professional chef who will guide and teach you along the way and discover how to make gelato with his show cooking. Sample your own italian pizza and taste the flavors of the Gelato made in Italy. Your new cooking skills will be the best souvenir you take home from your trip to Italy.

Numbers are limited to 25 people on this small-group tour, ensuring you'll receive personalized attention from your knowledgeable guide.
  • 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’ll 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’ll 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.
