You will learn how to prepare perfect dough, how to stretch it, and how to cook it. You will get to know different varieties of Neapolitan pizza, how to select ingredients, and the importance of tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese.
The Figurato brothers will teach you the secrets to preparing exquisite pizza dough, how to knead, and how to ferment it. They will prepare classic Neapolitan pizzas baked both in a traditional oven and in a domestic oven. If you don’t have a Neapolitan pizza oven, the pizza will be baked in a convection oven.

You will learn the importance of tomato sauce – how to prepare it with raw tomatoes, how to select good quality mozzarella cheese, and how to cut it. You’ll also know how to prepare the most iconic Neapolitan pizzas and you’ll even learn some of their original creations, like the pumpkin and guanciale pizza, which earned them second place among the best pizzerias in Europe.

The Neapolitan brothers Riccardo and Vittorio Figurato are master pizza makers and owners of Fratelli Figurato in Madrid.
They have two restaurants in the Spanish capital city:
- Pizzeria Fratelli Figurato – a must: taste the most authentic Neapolitan pizza, using very long fermentation times, more than 48h.
- Trattoria Popolare Fratelli Figurato, where, apart from the Neapolitan pizza, you can find regional Italian fresh pasta (home made).
Riccardo and Vittorio come from the marketing world, but have a profound passion for pizza, and cooking in general. They opened their first restaurant, Pizzeria Fratelli Figurato, in the year 2017, intending to bring the best and lightest Neapolitan pizza to Madrid.
Gradually, this pizza restaurant became famous in the neighborhood, then across the capital city and it is now a pizza restaurant of reference in Spain.
In 2021, they featured in the 50 Top Pizza list, the 'Michelin stars of pizza'. Fratelli Figurato currently rank at #2 in the prestigious best pizza ranking in Europe, and #1 in Spain. For the first time, they will participate in the classification of the World's Best Pizzerias that is held in September.
