you ever wanted to know how the most
famous Italian traditional dish
on Earth is usually made? Woud you

really delicious? You can experience

Arianna & Friends organize private
pizza classes in Tuscany directly
at the pizza maker's house, a country
cottage in the area of the Pisan hills,
very close to Pisa, Livorno and Lucca.
Our pizza classes take place in
the evening starting from 4
pm or in the morning starting from
10 am for about 3 hours.
You meet our English speaking assistant
(also German, French, Spanish
and Russian are available) and get
to Aldo's (the chef) house, a wonderful
stone country cottage on top of a
very panoramic hill.
Here you start working with him preparing
the dough only using a selected
organic wheat flour.
Then you start preparing the dessert,
usually an apple pie or the
cantuccini biscuits, typical
Tuscan almond cookies.
While leaving the dough, you also
bake and taste some delicious cecìna,
a thin chickpea pie typical of Pisa
and the coastal area of Tuscany usually
served with focaccia.
You also prepare and taste some
quick bruschettas, served with
Aldo's home made pickles. Before starting
baking the pizzas, you will also prepare
all the ingredients that will be on
top of them: organic basil and
extra virgin olive oil, Tuscan
sausage, organic vegetables
from Aldo's plot etc..
Finally, you bake several pizzas,
served as soon as they get ready,
for a great pizza dinner together
with Aldo's wines in an amazing
terrace just outside of his house.
In rainy days, the pizza making room
can be used also as a dining room.
Your pizza making experience at Aldo's
will be the most striking day of
your holiday in Tuscany!
