About Class:

Learn the art of making Roman Pizza Al Metro and Ricotta Cheese from scratch with Pizzaiolo Alessio Lacco. As the name suggests Pizza al Metro means “Pizza by the meter”, these long pizzas are cooked directly on the stone of the wood fired oven. Pizza al Metro is made according to the number of people sharing it up to one meter long. Sometimes it is referred to Pizza al Pala which means pizza on a peel. This pizza is great for parties as each section of the pizza can have different toppings.

This Pizza cooking class will cover all aspects of Roman pizza including how to make Ricotta Cheese, Pizza Al Metro Dough and Stretching & Proofing techniques. The chef will also show the proper wood fired pizza cooking and handling techniques using the ilFornino Pizza Ovens.

**Notes and Certificates of completion will be provided
