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.

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.

Where you'll be

I'll be happy to welcome you into my cozy home in an old building (like almost everything in Italy), located in a multicultural neighborhood very close to Como city center. Como is a beautiful city next to a lake of the same name. Como is near Milan.

Escoger esta experiencia durante nuestra visita a Como fue todo un acierto. Nos sorprendió gratamente comprobar que la actividad no se realizaría con más asistentes (por las medidas preventivas contra el Covid, nos pareció adecuado). Umberto es una persona muy amable y abierta, además de dar explicaciones muy claras y detalladas durante la preparación de la pizza, hablar con él resulta muy agradable. Preparamos pizzas deliciosas y nos dio todo lo que no pudimos comer "in situ" para que lo comiéramos más tarde. ¡Tendremos que seguir su consejo y practicar en casa para no echar de menos esas deliciosas pizzas!

The experience with Umberto was amazing. His life story and experience are very interesting, and the way he explained everything was both entertaining and inspiring. Gonna recommend this experience to everyone going to Italy!

Instructions and teachings were precise and highly informed--it's clear that pizza making is Umberto's craft and that he's dedicated to constant improvement & learning. He is patient and answers any questions you may have. All in all a great experience that we'd highly recommend to anyone looking for a cooking class or just an activity in the Como/Milan area. Just sign up! You'll have lots of fun and bring home tons of pizza to binge on.

Umberto is an amazing teacher. His life, story, way of teaching, way of life and humour all contributed to this wonderful pizza making experience. He was patient, helpful and gave positive feedback. The pizzas we made were the best pizza I have ever eaten. Thank you, Umberto!

Pizza making with Umberto was so fun! We learned a lot about traditional pizza making techniques and the end result was tasty and more than we could eat. Umberto has been all around the world and very knowledgeable. Would recommend!

Really enjoyed learning the history and process of making pizza. Umberto was a great teacher and had a lot of interesting stories to tell along the way.
