Italians take their food very seriously, and before you start cooking, you must understand some pizza basics. Pizza Margherita got its name from Italy’s Queen Margherita, who in the late 19th century in Naples was served a pizza resembling the Italian flag – red tomatoes, white mozzarella and green basil. The beloved Italian pizza as we know it today was born.

Today, Italians make variety of pizzas from different regions. While toppings and cheeses may vary from region to region, the culinary rule of using fresh, local ingredients remains the same throughout the country. This cooking class will give you the opportunity to create and bake your own Italian pizza.
