Business overview

Become a Pizza Master, a Pasta Chef or an Italian Chef! We will help you find a job!

Yard Sale Pizza,( London); The Pizza Room London; Barbarossa,(Middlesbrough); The Solstice, (Stonehenge).

These are only a few students of ours who succeded in the UK.

THUS LETS STATE SEVEN GOOD REASONS TO CHOOSE OUR SCHOOL:

1) In our school, you can decide to learn by using a wood burning oven or an electrical one, or even both. Flexible hours to suits your needs, Monday to Sunday, mornings classes, afternoon classes.

2) Once finished your lessons with us, while our search will starts on the Internet, you can decide to stay at our pizza shop and train further, working side by side with Elia Tavernese, your teacher, till you find the job which suits you.

3) We are the only pizza school who, once you finish the course, strives hard to find you a job or gives you good hints if you want to open your shop.

4).All those schools or academies out there teach only one kind of dough (excepted some of them who, missing of any fantasy, even dare to textually copy our program) while we teach several of it, which makes you better understand the principle of fermentation. And this, for the same amount of fees. This way, you are more likely to find a job.

5)You can check, we are competitive in prices, and all our students know with us there are no hidden costs, nor restrictions of teaching, as we often teach more than what we declare in our website.

6).And finally, even long after finishing their course at our school, like his children, Elia Tavernese, the director of the Elia's Pizza School, welcomes all his students, asking for hints and advice, even after years.

7) Don't you believe our dough is worth? OK, contact us and ask for a testing. You can choose to taste our pizza baked in a wood-burning oven or an electric one (this latter overall with astonish you).

This is our programme, this is our promise, as well as our guarantee of honesty and transparency to everyone who, with dedication, takes our course.

We are opening our 5th shop. Thanks Elia's pizza school

We met Elia in 2015 when we where looking for a consultant on pizza making.
After 2 weeks of an intensive and tailor-made course we had all the needed skills to open our first restaurant.
Elia assisted us during the whole process, advising on everything from equipment and tools to hiring the right people and how to avoid the classic mistakes.

We are now opening our fifth shop (The Pizza Room). All in all, Elia's pizza school is the best investment we've ever done. Worth every penny.
