The Artisan

Gigi, the pizza chef who will guide you through the pizza cooking class

Gigi, creative pizza chef

Gigi began his career as a cook, and eventually approached the world of pizza-making almost by chance. In his 30-year career as a pizza chef, he has always pursued quality, continuing to take regular courses over time. In 2009, he started his own pizzeria with his brother, creating countless gourmet pizzas that enhance local Apulian products since then. His victory is “seeing his restaurant full every night”. His favourite pizza is unquestionably the marinara.

Detailed Programme

Gigi will welcome you to one of Putignano’s most iconic restaurants. Located in the historic centre of the town, the restaurant was once a wine cellar where wine was produced. Later transformed into a tavern in the 1980s, Gigi moved his pizzeria there in 2021. It is partly excavated in the rock and characterised by magnificent stone vaults.

At the beginning of the pizza cooking class, Gigi will tell you about his journey as a pizza chef. He will show you the top-quality ingredients that he uses both for the dough and for the toppings of his gourmet pizzas – which have become regionally famous for the creativity of their combinations – and he will explain you the maturation process of the dough.

Next, getting to the heart of the pizza making experience, Gigi will guide you in the preparation of your pizza. You will start by preparing the dough and closing the dough balls to make pizzas. Then, using dough that has already matured for over 48 hours and is therefore highly digestible, you will learn how to hand stretch and garnish your pizza. It will then be time to put your gourmet pizza in the oven with a professional peel, like a real pizzaiolo, and wait for it to bake.

The pizza experience will end with the tasting of the pizzas that each participant will have prepared. Sitting around a table and accompanying the tasting with a drink, you will have time to chat with Gigi to ask him all the questions you want and learn more about his story as a creative pizza chef.
