Pizza & Dolce

A pizza and dessert cooking lesson in Rome.

Learn the tricks to becoming an expert pizza maker in our private Pizza and Dolce making class, and then reward yourself with dessert!

Our Casa Mia trained chef teaches students how to mix, knead and roll out pizza dough; shares tips on how to top the pizzas with fresh local ingredients, plus demonstrates baking techniques that can be easily replicated at home. 

Eating the homemade pies is not the only perk: guests also make a classic Italian dessert, like tiramisu or gelato.

At the end of the class, students and chef enjoy a convivial meal together, savoring the pizza and dolce prepared together.

    We enjoyed a wonderful tour of Rome. We visited a neighborhood food market and several local food merchants, including a bakery, a pizza place, and a cheese store. Our guide was very knowledgeable about food, history, and traditions. Highly recommended!
