The 5 day extensive course is recommended for people who want to open a Neapolitan pizzeria and need to be able to transfer all the skills to the working staff.
The first 3 days schedule of the course will be the same of the Regular course. The 2 additional days of training will be dedicated to additional practice of making pizza, cooking more pizzas in the same time, learning how to prepare other kinds of Neapolitan pizzas with different toppings, and cooking typical topping from the Neapolitan traditional cuisine.
The student will have the possibility to customize the program, focusing on any of the 15 concepts of the course.
The program is divided in 4 periods:
1 – Theoretical period. Knowledge of the Product and Preparation Process
The course's theoretical hours aim to furnish the student with an essential knowledge of the physiological, morphological and genetic components of the products composing the Neapolitan pizza.
The theory section will take place in the workshop following a well–defined schedule in which the instructors will teach these essential concepts:
2 – Workshop Period
The course is focused on practice. You will also acquire many secrets and skills. You will have a space on the bench for practice, supervised by a VPN Certified Master pizzaiolo and you will spend the majority of the time preparing the dough, forming the balls, slapping the dough, cooking pizza and preparing all the ingredients you need.
3 – Cheese making factory
