The Really NEET Pizza Project
A local company is giving teenagers the chance to open their own temporary pizza parlour in Sheffield, as part of the Really NEET Pizza Project.
The event will be run by Pizzatainment, a local company who works in schools to provide healthy-eating workshops based around cooking fresh, Italian-style pizza. They have now teamed up with Adventure Workshops Education and Sheffield Food Festival to provide this unique opportunity for young people in Sheffield.
The Really NEET Pizza Project will challenge five young people, aged 16-18, who are not in education, employment or training, to open their own pizza restaurant. They will have just two weeks to plan and design the restaurant, develop their business plan and learn how to cook pizza.
The temporary restaurant will be in Barkers Pool from 4-10 July and will be open 11am-7pm every day.
The restaurant will also host a pizza masterclass for three mornings that teaches you how to make pizza from scratch. Pizzatainment will teach you all the basic skills such as how to make the dough, spin and throw pizza bases, and you can enjoy your stone-baked pizza fresh from their portable ovens. Workshops run from 9-11.30am on 6-8 July, are suitable for all ages and cost £5 per person.
All funds raised by the Really NEET Pizza Project will fund the participants’ studies for the next year.
If you want to book a place on a workshop or are interested in sponsoring the event contact Pizzatainment on 0114 249 7927.
