Think Italy. Think fresh, seasonal, flavoursome ingredients. Think versatility. Piping hot from the oven, or even chilled from the fridge, a really good pizza is very hard to beat.

Sadly, this wonderful dish has had its reputation besmirched by fast and frozen food manufacturers. However, in the space of a single morning (including a pizza-orientated light lunch) you will learn how to prepare indescribably delicious, melt-in-the-mouth pizza! We shall cover everything from different sorts of pizza bases to innovative toppings, and from how to cook first class pizza in a domestic oven or a wood burning oven to the importance of using the right olive oil.

What you’ll learn about

  • How to make Calzone, Piadina, Sfinciuni, Foccacia
  • The importance of sourcing the best ingredients for the best results
  • Tips for forward planning and saving time

  • The best kind of ingredients to use on your pizza.
