PALMA DE MALLORCA, Spain, Oct. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Vegan Gastronomy Culinary Academy, the world's leading vegan cooking school announced today that it has launched the world's first vegan pizza school.

Expanding the course offering beyond savory traditional dishes, international cuisine, pastry, cheese and baking, the academy has opened its doors to teach the world's most popular food, pizza.

"This is the next chapter in our growing success of mainstreaming Vegan food," stated Stephanie Prather, Founder of Vegan Gastronomy Culinary Academy. "We are taking our expertise in flavor and textures, and merging it together with low cost and healthier approaches to enabling vegan pizza to be a tasty mainstream alternative in a changing food landscape."

The Vegan Pizza School courses are taught either in person at the academy in Mallorca Island Spain in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea or online via the popular interactive system the academy has developed.

"We found that our ability to make vegan dishes as good as or better than conventional dishes was a sign we needed to launch our Vegan Pizza School", stated Jessica McKenzie, General Manager of Vegan Gastronomy. "We have all both trained and have been professionally trained in all the components of what makes a great pizza and so we are bringing those altogether to teach the world."

The initial Vegan Pizza Course takes students back to ancient techniques and experience the traditions of the Neapolitans, and then moves on to learn about the migration of Italians to modern day New York and how pizza evolved. The course than moves you through how the Chicago style thick crust pizza came about and then students experience from a Californian the modernist and artisanal approaches that evolved in California. And then finally students are immersed in cultural adaptations of Pizza from around the world that satisfy pizza lovers of all kinds.

The academy will train home cooks and aspiring pizza chefs, professional Pizzaiolos wanting to expand their portfolio, as well as cooking school instructors and professional hospitality/hotel cooks and chefs.

Courses begin in March of 2019 and the academy is accepting enrollment applications now.
