I have allergies and or dietary requirements

At Il Castello I try my best to keep a very wholesome family feeling to the restaurant, everything is made by hand and to order. The owner and I refer to the feel as “Nonna’s kitchen”, by keeping everything simple and rustic you’ll be able see and feel how we treat our food. I want you leave this class realizing how simple it is to stretch neapolitan pizza dough by hand, and basic sauce building 101. A few knife skills to practice, and a brief history lesson into the simplicity of Italian cuisine.


  • Pizza dough: A demonstration of how the pizza dough is made, a breakdown of why each ingredient goes into it and a timeline of the proofing process.
  • Tomato sauce: Canned tomatoes, garlic, onions, red wine, and a bouquet.
  • Assorted meats: We’ll be able to top our own pizzas with whatever we want, some restrictions will apply to keep the food as simple as possible.
  • Panzanella salad: Cucumber, cherry tomatoes, balsamic shallot vinaigrette, garlic croutons and basil.
  • Polenta and Peas with Prosciutto: Boiled polenta with peas, topped with prosciutto parmesan and herbs.

Come ready to eat pizza and salad and learn what it means to keep food simple and rustic.
