Toronto – Cristiano Garbarino, founder of the Percorsi di Pizza school in Rome, will teach a class on making “Teglia Romana” also known as Roman pan pizza at the School of Italian Pizza in Toronto June 10-11.

According to S.O.I.P., this pizza, which originated in Rome, is made using high-hydration dough stretched across a long rectangular steel pan. Created to be a fast-food, this pizza is ideal for fast takeout, and eaten immediately. It also tastes great after being reheated later, which is perfect for restaurants and patrons alike.

Cristiano Garbarino has been a professional pizza chef for more than 20 years specializing in Romana al taglio style pizza. Since 2012 Garbarino has also been a restaurant consultant and Master Pizza Chef. He competed in, and won the 2018 World Pizza Championship in Parma Italy, in Roman Pizza and Dough Customization.
