It is built in typical local stone and immersed in the trees, and is known today as one of the most renowned restaurants in Taormina.
In this beautiful setting the professional “pizzaiolo” (pizza chef) will be waiting to present an introduction on the history of pizza. This includes an explanation of the various types of dough, flour, raising agents, proving of the pizza dough, and the characteristics of Sicilian pizza.
Learn how to make pizza dough, the tricks of the trade and how to make a light and tasty tomato sauce, and how to use various types of toppings, before proceeding to the oven and cook pizza.
Then learn how to bake the traditional 'cannolo', a tube-shaped shell of fried pastry dough, filled with a sweet, creamy filling usually containing ricotta.
Learn about the best local ingredients, such as ricotta cheese, and the cooking techniques, all in the name of making the best cannolo.
