Pizza- and gelato-making class in Florence with a professional chef (includes FREE return shuttle bus transport from Lucca)

One of Italy's most iconic dishes is the pizza, with its rich tomato topping, fragrant herbs and enticing toppings. We're sure that, if you've tried an authentic Italian pizza in its birthplace, you have noticed that an Italian pizza is so much more flavourful than what is available back home. But how do Italians make their pizza taste so good? With this cooking class you will be able to learn the secrets of Italian pizza from a professional chef, who will demonstrate the importance of the pizza dough and show you how to hand-throw the base and select the best ingredients for your topping.

After learning all about Italian pizza, the cooking class then moves on to the decadent Italian gelato - a type of ice-cream. During this part of the class, you will learn all about this iconic Italian dessert and the best techniques that will allow you to make this sublime iced dessert back home for family and friends.

After the class, you will be able to sit down to enjoy a luxury dinner featuring the pizza and gelato that you have helped prepare, as well as local wine and soft drinks. You will also be given a special certificate, making this a great activity for families.
