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.

We had a great time learning the art of making the perfect Roman pizza! Umberto shared all the tips and explained everything so well. Love how passionate he is about teaching & sharing his knowledge with others. My wife & I couldn’t stop eating the pizza and the bread he baked for us. Totally divine!

We absolutely loved this experience with Umberto. He is an amazing guy with great stories and lessons to share. Besides that, the pizza we made was one of the best we ever tasted. Umberto’s passion for making pizza was contagious as he shared all his tips with us. If you really want to get to know the essence of making pizza, I recommend going to Umberto. For us it was definitely one of the best experiences while spending our time at lake Como!
