Pizza Making in Rome with Kids

Pizza Making in Rome

On day 4 of our seven days in Rome with Kids after our visit to the Vatican with kids, we spent the afternoon learning how to make pizza. We were hosted by Rome4Kids Tours.

Classes tend to be made up of around 10 people who all get to make their own pizza and then eat it so time your visit carefully so you’re hungry when you finish and you’re ready to eat lunch or dinner.

We travelled during Covid so we all wore masks inside, even the kids.

The class was all in English and although there were other nationalities attending, everyone spoke English. We are so lucky in that respect.

So what do you do on your Pizza Making Class?

You’ll be asked to wash your hands and then all the group congregate around a table to be taught how to make your dough.

You’ll measure, mix, knead and roll out your own crust and be taught how and why you need to leave it to rise. The chefs will then swoop in and swap your pizza base with their own as it has to rest for 24 hours before it can be used. This also means that if you mess up this first stage you’ll still have a lovely pizza to eat.

Once the base has been made and rolled you’ll move into the kitchen top the base with a sumptuous homemade sauce and then you can select your own toppings.

The pictures from the day show you more of what you do than I can, you should also watch our Instagram Reel!

It is of course an expensive way to have a pizza dinner, but is nevertheless a wonderful learning opportunity and Italian experience that is not to be missed!
