Basic Course of Pizza



40 hours

6 days

8 hours for 5 days (Monday to Friday): morning: 8:00-12:00 + afternoon: 13:00-17:00


The aim of the course is teaching how to make a Pizza from A to Z and it involves both theory and practice.

Theory: 8 hours

Practice: 32 hours

Theory means that you will study:

–       History of Pizza

–       Food properties

–       Ingredients and their properties: water, yeast, flour, salt, fats, oil, mozzarella, tomato

–       Chemical processes of dough mixing and related techniques

–       Types of oven and their use

–       Preservation and conservation of ingredients

–       Equipment safety and maintenance

–       Hygienic and sanitary regulations

During practical lessons you will learn:

–       how to realize the different doughs,

–       how to make little balls from the mixture (a process better known as “parcelling”)

–       how to use the oven  and other equipment

–       how to spread, to stuff and to cook a delicious pizza

–       how to manage orders (which is very important because it gives the pizza-maker an added value to his work regarding his relationship with customers)

We will also pay attention to individual issues by going into more depth through short but very clear explanations. In this way the teacher lets students self motivate and enable them to reach an excellent level of knowledge.


At the end of the course each participant will receive a Certificate of Attendance after having done a final test. “Ateneo della Pizza” Certificate is internationally recognized and allows you to run with success an activity.
