What you'll do

You will learn how to craft artisan pizzas from scratch for you, your family, friends and coworkers. Beginning with making of the starter for the dough to the slicing and serving your creations hot from a 1,000 degree wood-fired pizza oven you will become a pizzaiolo for the day!

We will make dough and sauces to form the foundations of Neapolitan-style pizzas. After loading your creations with premium toppings, you will put them into a 1,000 degree wood-fired oven and bake them to perfection!

If you need to avoid Gluten, please take a look at my other Airbnb Experience: Gluten-Free Artisan Pizza.

This experience is great for team-building as well as family fun.

Guests who are 21+ are welcome to bring beer or wine to enjoy with the fruits of their labor.
Bon appetito!

I began making pizza when in college, as a part-time job. I continued learning the craft as an enjoyable pastime, including taking instruction from well-recognized culinary luminaries and pizza masters. When I had the opportunity to build my own wood-fired oven it was irresistible! Since then I've hosted dozens of events where I have guided hundreds of guests in the creation their own artisan pizzas.

My friend and I had a great private pizza making experience with Dave in his spacious backyard. Dave is super welcoming, eager to share his knowledge and has a good sense of humor. The communication was great prior to the event too. You’ll have a good time!

We went to Chef Dave's Pizza making class as a sort of team building activity for new members of an extended family. The environment was rich with classic Pizza shop vibes and It provided a good mix of time to relax and talk and activity. In the end we made fantastic pizzas which were delicious! Overall I'd recommend this to any group who is looking for something fun to do in the SF area.

Chef Dave is a FANTASTIC host. His home is absolutely beautiful, and so is his "beast" of a pizza oven. We ended up getting super lucky and no one else had booked the pizza experience on the same day as us so it ended up being a private class. Dave was super kind to us and made sure that we had what we liked on the pizzas. He definitely inspired us to want to invest in a Ooni or pizza oven in the future. We had so much fun and made such delicious pizzas for a magical price of $100 per person?? What a steal. Chef Dave taught us what real pizza should be like and how wonderful real pizza tastes. Thanks Chef Dave. You are a real one!!!

More tips

If the date you would like to become a pizzaiolo is not on the calendar, let me know I may be able to accommodate you. We are usually outdoors-it can get chilly-rain may cause us to prepare pizzas inside, if there is or has been lot of rain we may use indoor ovens at 500F- still with great results

What to bring
