Italian Baking & Pizza Making


Hand-crafted bread is the cornerstone of Italian cuisine. Designed with Italian food lovers in mind, this one-day course will teach you how to bake your own authentic Italian breads and handmade pizzas.

You’ll be guided through the artisan baking process by internationally renowned baker and author Emmanuel Hadjiandreou. During this hands-on course you will find out all about the ingredients vital to creating the signature flavour of your favourite Italian breads. You will be given plenty of opportunities to put the kneading, proofing and shaping skills you’ll be learning into practice, ending the day with the knowledge and confidence you’ll need to bake tasty fresh Italian breads and pizza at home.

No baking experience is necessary; just enthusiasm and a willingness to work alongside other food lovers to bake traditional Italian food. During the day, you will create a selection of produce to take home, including:

  • ciabatta
  • focaccia
  • sweet and savoury pizzas.

Refreshments will be available throughout the day, as well as a buffet style lunch prepared by our team of chefs. All ingredients, equipment and recipes will be provided.

The School of Artisan Food makes a conscious effort to reduce waste and packaging. Students are welcome to bring their own containers to transport their food home. Learn more here ...

Really enjoyed this course and learned so much. I am very much belatedly reviewing it, over a year since I went, but in that time I have regularly made ciabatta and pizzas and they have worked every single time and taste so nice. Heartily recommend.
