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.
Other things to note

This experience includes alcohol. Only guests who meet the legal drinking age will be served alcoholic beverages.

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.

The pizza making class was a great experience. The host knows everything about making pizza (and bread), and has really interesting life stories. The pizza we made was awesome, some of the best I’ve ever had!

Where else can you learn to make pizza from a PhD physicist? Umberto is a fascinating person who has led an interesting life, including having owned a pizzeria in another country for quite some time. I had never heard of the technique we used for making the dough, that was unexpected and we are excited to try it at home. We especially appreciate that he taught us a pizza style we can make at home in a standard oven. Delicious and fun afternoon!

Baking with Umberto was wonderful. Doing his home made so much fun and we learned a lot. The pizza at the end was delicious of course and you'll definitely be able to make the most delicious pizza at your house after this experience 😊

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 !
