Fun! This pizza making experience was just that. Vincenzo instructed us on the art of dough making which we got to try ourselves, provided us with ingredients to make our own custom creations, showed us the technique needed to get the pizza in the brick oven - harder than it looks and then we ate the best pizza Ever. Vincenzo is an incredible host and a wonderful instructor.

This tour is 100% worth doing. We got to try some amazing foods and learn so much about the history of the food as well as Rome. It’s a very pleasant walk and the samples of food, wine and beer that are included in the price are generously portioned.
