What you'll do

Welcome to my hands-on experience. I truly believe that everybody can prepare excellent pizzas at home. Therefore, everyone will have fun kneading, by hand, their own pizza dough. The idea is to learn how to make pizza without professional equipment so we will bake our pizzas in a standard kitchen oven.

I will give you some tips to bake a pizza, made with your own hands, that you will want to share with your family, friends, and everyone around you.

Finally, we will eat pizza and drink some complimentary wine to celebrate life like Italians do.

I am really passionate about making pizza and bread. I have been making pizza and bread professionally for many years. I knead dough every day. It is such a relaxing and enjoyable activity for me.

I can't wait to share the things I have learned over the years and the passion that goes into every piece of dough. That passion is the most important ingredient of any memorable pizza.

A great experience! I learned SO much about pizza, how to prepare the dough, what it has to feel like, look like, smell like, how to let it rest, how to “slap and fold” it, and much more. As everything in life, it takes time and care, and Umberto is there to guide you through the experience with his advice, his patience, his knowledge. When he cut it in pieces, I said I was going to take one “to taste it”... and ended up having FOUR pieces. In my husband’s words: “the best pizza I have ever had!” - And believe me, he’s not very generous when it comes to compliments related to food.

We had an amazing time with Umberto making pizza ! Umberto is not only passionate about pizza, food or wine but also social relations and teaching ! We learn a great deal about pizza but especially about the process of making a good pizza and what it represents for Italian people ! We'll obviously practice at home the skills learned with Umberto to try to make a pizza as delicious as the one prepared with Umberto ! One of the best Airbnb experience we've ever done !

This was such a wonderful experience, a true highlight on our trip to Italy. Umberto was a fantastic host, he was engaging, helpful and informative. We can not wait to start making pizza in our home. I have been to Italy 17 times and this is the best pizza I have ever had. As Umberto will tell you, it is all about the crust. I can not recommend this experience enough.

Umberto was so welcoming and a friendly, funny and happy personality. He is very knowledgeable and makes sure that you, as the “student”, get the most value out of the experience and that you are really able to make your own , Italian pizza when you get home. Thank you for a great time! We learned new techniques, the do’s and don’t’s of making pizza at home, and had a wonderful time with Umberto all at once!

Esperienza molto positiva, seppur in poco tempo è stato possibile fare una pizza partendo dagli ingredienti base e utilizzando accorgimenti che fanno la differenza

This is a wonderful experience which I would recommend to anyone wishing to learn how to make true, Italian pizza! Umberto was a fantastic teacher and we came away with vast knowledge about how to make the best pizza! The wine which Umberto provided while we were eating our delicious pizza was a cherry on top! Thank you Umberto!
