Starts on February 2020 Full hands-on course for pizza chef,
attendance mandatory. Starting with the basic mixes, you will learn
and master the rising, maturation, topping and baking techniques,
while using the best state-of-the-art equipment.
The pizza chef is the one planning and
managing the entire production, from mixing to serving, and tracking
each step from the choice of flours and ingredients to the final
finishing touches. It is a full course and
very much hands-on, for pizza chef training:
right from lesson one, it will provide with workshop
practice, constituting three quarters of the program. Our
goal is to turn the theoretical knowledge into the practical skills
one needs to be fully self-reliant.
Pizza school: learning in the workshop
All lessons are held in our 200 sq. m. new educational
workshop fully fitted with state-of-the-art
equipment, such as a Marana rotary wood-fired oven, an
electric oven, an F2 kneading machine and G Metal pizza peels and
where each student has their own station.
Our workshop has all types of working
surfaces one will have to deal with as a professional
pizza maker: steel, marble, granite and tempered glass.
We'd like to point out that our course's fee in Abano will
include wood-fired oven
specialization, unlike in other locations
(all apprentice pizza makers will learn to work
with electric ovens, as well as with stationary and rotary wood-fired
Pizza making course: flours and mixes
Students will be introduced to 14 types of
flours: from mainstream flours to kamut, stone-ground grains,
ancient grains, whole wheat, soy, Manitoba, full body, organic and
semolina, for more complex and trendier mixes.
Starting with the basic mixes we'll get
to the more complex ones, all baking products
based on pizza dough: baking tray pizza, pizza
slices, baguettes, calzoni, crescioni, pizza panini, piadine, gourmet
pizza, and learn some aspects of pub food
cooking, in order to enhance the professional skills included
in our pizza making training course.
Students will learn about the ingredients and their features, how
to choose and prepare them, as well as about food safety
All the imparted knowledge will be tested and expanded upon in the
training practical part, where students will try
all the types of mixes, flours, and the rising, maturation, topping
and baking techniques in wood-fired, electric and rotary ovens, all
the way to the final presentation.
The pizza making course will end with
a final exam during which all students will
create original pizzas to be assessed by a panel
of experts, meeting the same criteria as in the world pizza
championship: taste, baking quality and presentation. At the
end of the exam, we will issue Certificates of
Merit to the newly graduated and a prize
for the best pizza maker of the course.
