Attending Pizza School in Naples

Updated 2018.

Even *I* learn something from the pages of Dream of Italy! Though many of the story ideas and articles are conceived and written by me, I also hire the best travel experts to help uncover more Italian gems.

I first read about master pizzaiolo Enzo Coccia and his Naples pizza school when guest editor Barrie Kerper handed in the first draft of the her list of best cooking schools in Italy. Her suggestion led me to visit Enzo in Naples while filming the Dream of Italy travel series for PBS – my segment learning to make pizza is one of of my favorites of the Naples/Amalfi Coast episode!

Meanwhile, here’s more on Enzo’s school:

Pizza Consulting by Enzo Coccia
(39) 338 9997840
Prices: Start at 700€ for a one-week amateur class

Where better to learn the art of pizza making than in the city where pizza was born? Master Neapolitan pizzaiolo Enzo Coccia and his staff have been training hundreds of students from all over the world in the art of pizza making for many years. Three classes are offered: a week for amateurs, a master class (an individual course for the professional pizzaiolo; length and price determined after an evaluation) and professional (100 hours divided into 20 days, 2,800€; for those who have never worked as a pizzaiolo and want to learn the profession).
