People. Pizza. Passion.

As we continue to grow, our Academy means we can train and develop our people to become the best Pizzaioli around.

In our Academy, our trainees are taken through each step of the pizza making process, from the quality of our ingredients, to the temperatures of our ovens.

We have structured programmes for those who have never even touched pizza dough, those who are experienced pizzaioli, and even provide our current pizzaioli refresher training.

Passion is the foundation of great and authentic Neapolitan pizza, and The Academy is where we nurture this.

Neapolitan pizza, the Rudy’s way.

Rudy’s Academy is a dedicated space for our pizzaioli to learn how to make true Neapolitan pizza, the Rudy’s way. With time to train away from the pressures of service in our pizzerias, a trainee will receive intense training to enable them to step from a trainee to a junior pizzaiolo in just 8 weeks!

Ciao Roisin.

From apprentice to Rudy’s pizzaiola, Roisin started at Rudy’s in 2023 and after training in the Rudy’s Academy she is now an experienced pizzaiola at Rudy’s Portland Street.⁣

“My academy highlight was having the privilege of learning from Dario. His patience and passion for making amazing pizza meant that I felt confident to go back to the pizzeria at the end of the week.” – Roisin
