These hands-on, introductory, 4 1/2 hour intensives are designed for those individuals who have just purchased or are thinking of purchasing a woodfired oven. The goal of the class is to build confidence in budding pizzaiolos.

We will review the most effective way to build and manage a fire. We will build a fire in the woodfired oven that will eventually be hot enough for the Neapolitan pizza doughs and toppings we will create from scratch. There will be plenty of time for practice and one-on-one instruction. Recipes, hand-outs, and pizza lunch is included. Alongside gourmet pizzas, students will enjoy farm fresh salads, iced tea, coffee, and homemade coffee cake. 

  • Classes are held in our beautiful, professional home kitchen and deluxe outdoor cooking space.
  • Due to the semi-private nature of this intensive, classes are limited to 4 students.
  • Classes are designed for people 16 and older.

tim-tripadvisorReviewed by Tim M.:
My son & daughter gave me an intensive pizza class at Jillyanna’s for my 60th birthday. My wife and I are new owners of our own woodfired oven so we had a lot to learn. Jillyanna had so many great points about firing the oven that would have never been able to learn on our own. The class and hands on experience was wonderful , it didn’t take long before we all felt like old friends! Can’t wait to go back for another class, we’re thinking homemade pasta! It was a great day and would HIGHLY recommend to everyone.
