The pizza making class was such an amazing experience to share with friends. It wasn’t just a pizza making class as we first made bread, then learnt how to make pasta and finally pizza. We had a great time playing with dough and tasting all of our creations. Maurizio is a wonderful teacher. Couldn’t have asked for more.
