Perfect Pizza Academy Naples

learn the secrets of pizza.

The Perfect Pizza Academy in Naples was founded with the express purpose to give value to the pizza maker figure. Travelling around the world, the chef Vincenzo Varlese has realised that it is not sufficiently appreciated, especially abroad, probably because of the differences in the culture and in the way of making this masterpiece of the Neapolitan cuisine. Our goal is the transmission of the know-how necessary to make the pizza perfect from the organoleptic point of view. You will learn the best methods of kneading, stretching, seasoning and baking a pizza as well as the techniques for leavening. We teach the traditional technologies and the latest methods from the professionals. Moreover, you will be given the notions fundamental for identifying the chemical-physical characteristics of the basic products and you will learn to recognise and take into account the qualitative differences between the various ingredients. Last but not least, trainee will face and learn to manage the most common issues related to the fieldwork in order to guarantee a thorough competence.


our corses

We offer four different courses, each one dedicated to a different style of pizza:

  • classic style – it is the most popular pizza, which is thin and well-cooked;
  • neapolitan style – it is the real Neapolitan way of making pizza, from the dough to the baking;
  • gourmet style – it is a very high-level pizza involving the local culinary traditions;
  • alternative style – it is based on usual and original combinations of ingrediente for a delightful taste.
