Pizza Masterclass

Media guests were invited to a press Pizza Masterclass at the Neapolitan restaurant Rossopomodoro in Chelsea. The invitation was all about making pizza, eating pizza and testing out their new fried pizza.

The idea behind the complimentary event was to introduce guests to Rossopomodoro and learn the secrets of Neapolitan pizza giving you a taste of what they offer and have a fun, informal evening with ourselves, the Rosso team and our other guests.

About Rossopomodoro:
What sets Rossopomodoro apart is that they are truly Neapolitan. The chefs come from Neapolitan pizzaioli families and make Neapolitan dishes using ingredients sourced from the Napoli region so you won’t find a more genuine Neapolitan experience outside Napoli. The head pizzaioli have a minimum of ten years experience in their craft so know exactly what they are doing when it comes to making the perfect Neapolitan pizza.

What is Neapolitan pizza? It’s different because it has a raised border (cornicione) and a soft juicy centre because of the proving and cooking method. Each Rossopomodoro has a huge wood-fired oven that
blasts heat of at least 450 degrees celsius allowing the pizza to cook in less than 90 seconds.

Rossopomodoro’s dough goes through a traditional slow proving process of at least 24 hours, a method that ensures when the dough is cooked it is light and digestible. A soft and juicy centre is why Neapolitans often fold their pizzas while eating it on the go – want us to show you how? Just ask.

Pizza Masterclass with World Pizza Champion


On Friday the 13th November from 6pm Rossopomodoro Chelsea are hosting a pizza masterclass and dinner with the first ever female, World Pizza Champion Teresa Iorio.

The event is being held to celebrate that UNESCO have approved the bid to add Neapolitan pizza to their Heritage List. The former Italian Minister and Italian counsel will be available to speak to the press as well as Franco Manna (founder of Rossopomodoro) and the current and previous Champion and Rossopomodoro Pizzaiuoli Davide Civitiello.

About Teresa Iorio

An authentic Neapolitan woman Teresa comes from the big Iorio family (she is number 19 out of 20 children!) who all have a great passion for pizza. She followed the steps of her father Ernesto who opened his first pizzeria in Naples at the end of the ‘50s to learn the art of Neapolitan pizza to become one of the best Neapolitan pizzaiuoli in a male dominated profession. Teresa has been the first woman to win the prestigious Caputo Cup this September in Napoli. We are proud that she joins Rossopomodoro to support the UNESCO bid.
