Do you want to elevate your craft with Pizza? The obvious answer is yes and what better place to do it with Slow Rise Pizza. Noel brings a vast knowledge of experience and shares his passion with all things Pizza and Bread. Justin makes it fun and you must be dialed into his frequency. I had so many unanswered questions and was hungry for answers. After taking the beginner class, I still wanted more and more. Noel not only answered my questions, he goes above and beyond to embed the necessary skills for artisan pizza making. If you’re contemplating taking these classes…don’t even blink! They’re building an incredible community and want you to succeed on your pizza/bread journey. Plus, they’ll make you laugh a lot!


All of the classes that I have taken have been very informative. Noel is full of great information and Justin keeps it fun and as an accomplished pizza maker himself.


Took the Intermediate Pizza class. Was very informative and had a great time.


First time attending slow rise pizza. Wonderful learning experience. Adam Kuban did an excellent job demonstrating the many different New York style pizzas. I’m definitely going to attend more Slow Rise classes. So much to learn!!!


Truly a fantastic class. So much knowledge communicated in a very comprehensible way. Highly recommend this class.


I was able to take a class at Surfas LA pre-pandemic and it was absolutely wonderful. Noel and Justin are very passionate, curious, open and hardworking folks. I would highly recommend one of their classes to anyone. Bakers, Pizzaiolos, enthusiasts of anything fermented. In addition the network of things and other topics and skills they continue to provide post class.


Thoroughly enjoyed the Zoom class. Very informative and interesting info as I try to improve my pizza making skills. Keep up the great work!


I really enjoyed it! Noel’s way of explaining is amazing. It clears up a lot of things. I really like to meet people that enjoy their work and are passionate about it, and for sure, Noel is that type of person. And Justin too! I did the On Demand recorded classes. I suppose that the live experience must be different, but I liked a lot that I could do the class on my rhythm, put pause, go back and repeat some parts. I spend almost all weekend with the videos and making pizza. Thank you very much!


After a wonderful journey through all three courses, Begining, Intermediate, and Advanced, I know I am better for it. The instruction was entertaining and in-depth with examples and reassurance. If you learn nothing else, you will learn the importance of temperatures, which leads to amazing pizza and bread. I am grateful for Noel and Justin at Slow Rise Pizza Co. for your patience and humor. These classes are a must for the home cook, pizza hobbyist, pro cooks, and those looking to start a new journey. The topics covered will completely meet your expectations. The Intermediate and Advanced classes are so content-rich, you should take them more than once.

I look forward to learning more in the future. Cheers!


Who knew demystifyIng the pizza process could be this much fun?! Noel and Justin are just the right mix of good times and hard work leaving me with everything I need to better my pizza game while remembering what got me into it in the first place. 🙌
