Little man loves getting involved in the kitchen and helping out when we are cooking and baking. He had lots of fun when we visited Rossopomodoro at John Lewis Oxford Street for a children’s pizza masterclass at the Neapolitan restaurant.
Rossopomodoro has recently opened its eighth restaurant in the UK, bringing authentic Neapolitan experience to central London. It is conveniently located on the third floor of John Lewis Oxford Street, so you can pop round for a lovely meal after a busy day of shopping.
The fun day started by learning about the story of pizza and how they were first made in Italy. Little man then had the chance of putting his knowledge into practice by making his very own pizza dough.
He started by mixing the ingredients, then leaving the dough to rest. I learnt that the secret of a good pizza base is resting the dough for several hours, before stretching out the dough, adding the toppings and baking the pizza.
Little man chose the toppings for his pizza and loved watching the skilled pizzaioli bake it in the traditional wood-burning oven. Hubby and I also tried the pizza and really enjoyed the authentic Neapolitan experience at Rossopomodoro.
The pizza was delicious and full of flavour. Only the best ingredients, sourced directly from the Neapolitan region of Campania, are used to create the authentic pizzas.
The dough is made from the finest Caputo red quality flour and mineral water; wine is carefully selected from local businesses; and the mozzarella is flown in fresh twice a week direct from Napoli. Rossopomodoro is dedicated to authentic flavours and tradition.
Kids are now on school holidays and the Easter holidays are a great opportunity to visit Rossopomodoro for a fun family meal of authentic pizzas. I’ve noticed that John Lewis is hosting a special Easter Weekend, full of spring treats. You will find product demonstrations, chocolate tasting, craft workshop for children on how to make Easter cards, and an Easter egg hunt.
