The Avenue Cookery School, SW18
Pizza's are delicious in taste and super simple to make... But have you ever actually made one?
We thought so. And that's why we put together this simple workshop for complete beginners in which you will learn everything you need to know to make a pizza, from dough to the oven. And do not worry, because even though we will teach you the simplest version, you will learn everything you need to mix and match to your preferred flavours at home!
In this class
We have put together this special series of workshops to help you learn to cook restaurant-esque meals and wow your friends and family back at home. In this class you will learn how to make Margarita or Pepperoni Pizza with Salad. The class lasts 2.5 hours where you will pick up tips about time management in the kitchen, some handy knife skills, vegetable preparation and all the other kitchen 101's from our professional chefs.
After that, you whip up the delicious meal yourself before eating it with fellow class-goers. You are more than welcome to bring your own alcohol - in fact, its encouraged! A good glass of wine always goes well with a meal.
Now you can
After sweating over the skills you all get to sit down and enjoy the fruits of your labour.
Pizza in the form that we know it today came out of Naples in the 1700s after the tomato appeared on the table. Even before then, Naples has records that mention other types of flatbreads around the year 1000. Pizzas then were mainly dressed with garlic and olive oil or cheese and anchovies and were baked on an open fire.

The Avenue Cookery School is a family-run leaning business based in Wandsworth in South West London. The owner and head chef Diana began her career as a chalet chef before discovering her entrepreneurial side and founding a number of specialist food ventures. Infamously, Diana taught at The Grange Cookery School in Somerset for 7 years before starting The Avenue, where she has been ever since.
Diana is supported by her son Richard and daughter Sophie.
The food at The Avenue can be considered classic chic but full of fun twists and turns (ranging from macaroon masterclasses to gluten free baking to simple supper classes). All the classes are taught in the school's beautiful kitchen facilities in a relaxed environment.
