Experience this very unique opportunity to learn the secret pizza recipe from Australia’s first Gluten Free accredited Pizzeria, Shop 225!

Looking to recreate Italian classics without gluten, dairy or eggs? Join Melbourne’s expert Gluten Free & Vegan establishment Shop 225 as they teaches us how to make their signature Gluten Free Pizza recipe with vegan toppings! By adopting these tips and tricks, you can now enjoy the flavour and texture of traditional Italian cuisine in an ethical and creative way without compromising on taste!

In 2018, Shop 225 became the first accredited Gluten Free pizza shop in Australia accredited by Coeliac Australia. In this enlightening and hands-on class, Shop 225 proudly open their doors to us in sharing their story and inspiring us to make and enjoy pizza in an entirely new way! Shop 225’s recipes have attracted a cult following of locals and people across town with their simple Italian ethos, vegan and gluten free offering.

In this hands-on class, we will provide you with a detailed video, instructing you how to create your own pizza dough the night before our class so that you will have pizza dough to work with and cook during our class. We will also make a fresh batch of dough all together in the class from scratch, which you can allow to rest and cook the next day! You can also have the option of making Shop 225’s signature Margherita Pizza or Nutella Dessert Pizza; both non-vegan and vegan options! By the end of this class, you will have gained the confidence and knowledge to reinvent traditional pizza, whilst also learning where to source the freshest seasonal and local ingredients appropriate for gluten free and vegan cooking!

Your hosts this afternoon will be Owner Lorenzo Tron and Head Chef Edoardo Nicita of Shop 225 in Melbourne. It was late 2016 when this humble pizza shop was opened in Pascoe Vale South. However this suburban pizzeria has already attracted a cult following of locals and people across town with its simple Italian ethos, vegan and gluten free offering. In 2018 we became the first accredited Gluten Free pizza shop in Australia accredited by Coeliac Australia. The restaurant’s focus is traditional home-made pastas and wood fired pizza made from 72-hour leavening dough. The team’s greatest inspiration in the kitchen is drawing from their Italian heritage, whilst passionately sharing how to eat vegan and gluten-free friendly without compromising on taste.
