Mr. Alexandru Andrei Matanie has successfully completed a Pizza Course at the Accademia Pizzaioli in Portogruaro, Italy. The course took place between Friday August 25th and Monday August 28th, 2017.

The course was intensive and predominantly practical. As the theoretical part, it started off with a detailed explanation of the basic mixture of a classic pizza (flour, water, yeast, oil, salt).

In the practical part, Alex along with other students had to prepare the dough both using the direct and the indirect method (biga and poolish). As a result, Alex achieved more knowledge and speed when using equipment like: kneading machines, workbenches, blades and ovens.


At the end of the training, a certificate was issued by the Accademia Pizzaioli which holds International Quality Certifications UNI EN ISO 9001: 2008 and UNI ISO 29990: 2011.
