Participants, no matter from which part of globe they come from, will observe the preparation of true Neapolitan pizza. Then, after a short briefing, they will prepare it themselves under the guidance of our master pizzaiolo.
In fact, pizza is one of the most well-known and beloved Italian dishes in the world. Originating of Naples, in Italy pizza is prepared in many ways and many different versions, but it always keeps that inimitable flavor that distinguishes it and makes it a honor of each Italian.
Preparation of dough (included the typical maneuvers of a Neapolitan pizzaiolo!), choosing of ingredients, attention for appearance of the plate: these are the elements of the challenge that the teams will face during a Pizza Making Team Building.
This culinary format of Team Building is very easy to practice and is perfectly suited to any business need: it stimulates interaction between employees and cooperation. Participants need to improve their capacity of helping each other. In a completely relaxed atmosphere, communication is fostered within the group.
Experiential training allows you to put into practice the values that you would like to transmit to the whole company in an alternative and inclusive way. Team Building, compared to classroom training, allows for greater communication between colleagues.
Specifically, Team Building Pizza Cooking can be seen as an experiential activity suitable for both Italians and foreigners. An Italian team will have the opportunity to highlight its culture by preparing a typical Italian dish; a team of a different nationality will discover an important part of Italian gastronomic culture.
Participants, from different parts of the world, will learn the techniques and process of preparing Neapolitan pizza and, after a briefing, will be able to try their hand at the actual preparation under the guidance of master pizza makers available for each team.
This team building activity is done in two phases. In the first part the participants, divided in teams, observe a master pizzaiolo kneading the pizza dough and try to repeat his maneuvers. It’s a very fun moment, where even those who aren’t usually interested in cooking can try to become a pizzaiolo.
During the second phase, each group enters the kitchen to roll out and season their pizzas. The dough is rolled out by hands and then seasoned with the classical ingredients of a Pizza Margherita: mozzarella, tomato puree, basil. Finally, the bravest can try to bake themselves their pizzas in the wood oven!
Once the pizza is ready, we come to the tastiest part of the event: each participant can eat the pizza he has done with his own hands, and try those of his colleagues. At the table begins a nice conversation, while group dynamics become more peaceful and healthy.
First of all, because it’s a source of pure fun! The teams learn to prepare one of the most popular dishes not only in Italy, but all around the worlds. We won’t lack a little healthy competition, especially when it comes to roll out the pizza dough. Another “ingredient” of our pizza? Creativity, that you will express by choosing your own ingredients and the presentation of your plate!
Moreover, it allows you to perform an activity out of the ordinary and get out of office. An alternative method to take a break from work, but at the same time with the possibility of creating good group spirit and a relaxing and sociable environment among colleagues.
Team Building Pizza Cooking is a training activity with a strong experiential impact, certainly able to leave a memorable memory of a day out of the ordinary!
In addition to the educational part, this cooking format is also a source of healthy fun! Leaving a smile on participants’ faces is a goal that Team Building activities set out to achieve.
Another reason why this type of Team Building is very popular is inherent to the fact that teams can really and concretely learn how to prepare one of the most popular dishes not only in Italy, but all over the world: pizza.
There is also a bit of healthy competition, especially when it comes to twirling the dough in the air. Another “ingredient” of our pizza? Definitely creativity, which can be expressed by choosing the ingredients and taking care of the presentation of your dish!
Final result of Team Building Pizza Cooking: an excellent pizza and a good dinner with friends!
