Learn to make a pizza with a difference
Pizza is probably the world’s favourite food, and where better to learn than Italy? A professional chef will guide you through the process of making authentic pizza dough using fresh, local ingredients. You will then learn how to stretch and shape the dough, add delicious toppings such as mozzarella, tomato sauce, and basil, and bake the perfect pizza in a wood-fired oven.As you’re in Palermo, you’ll also see how a traditional “sfincione palermitano”is made. In English, that means thick sponge, so this is a little different to the thin-based traditional Neapolitan pizza you might be used to - not that that makes it any less mouthwatering. Watch your pizzaiolo make the thick, bready dough and pay attention because you’ll pick up plenty of tips that you can use to take home when cooking in your own kitchen!
The best pizza you’ve ever had
Your pizza chef will show you how to stretch, sauce, bake and slice your creation. But your dough is going to have to rest before you sample your creation. However, we’ve got the time you’d otherwise be waiting filled with two activities. Firstly, anyone over 18 can sample wines. Next, we will move on to making gelato, the famous Italian ice cream. You will learn how to make a smooth and creamy gelato base, and how to add flavors. You will also learn how to churn the gelato to the perfect texture, and how to serve it in the traditional Italian way in a cone to put in it. Throughout the class, you will learn about the history and culture of pizza and gelato in Palermo, and the secrets to making these delicious dishes at home. You will also have the opportunity to taste your creations, accompanied by local wine.
Take your recipes home and remember the class forever
Once everything is ready, you’ll be able to eat your delicious pizza and gelato. However, that’s not the end of the class. You’ll get a souvenir to take home - a digital booklet with recipes so you can make pizza and gelato for your family and friends back home, who are sure to be impressed! An unforgettable afternoon, you’ll learn about Italian culture and its most delicious specialities while enjoying a fun and easy experience with your family. By the end of the class, you will have gained a new appreciation for the art of pizza and gelato making, as well as valuable skills and recipes to impress your friends and family back home.
