A long tradition since 1950, and a love for what Italians call the “Arte Bianca.” The years go by, but attention to fine flavour always stays the same.
Our products are the result of our painstaking quest for quality: the extra-long leavening (minimum: 72 hours), the stone-ground, unrefined organic flours, sourdough starter, fresh vegetables right from the garden, and selected ingredients make our products good and healthy – plain and simple!
This is Elettroforno Frontoni, a project that brings together traditional flavour and the new experiments being tried out by Rome’s master bakers.
Tradition and innovation come together for unique products like bread and pizza.

Courses are held in the mornings. In particular:
- The bread baking course lasts 4h/day, Monday to Saturday, from 6 to 10 AM... We’re sorry about the early hour, but that’s the baker’s life! :)
- The pizza itinerary always lasts 4h/daym Monday to Saturday, from 10 AM to 2 PM (morning).
The bread and pizza itineraries may be combined for a discount. The maximum savings over the duration of the courses is for 3 weeks and up.
The course in the field teaches all the secrets for baking different types of bread (durum wheat, semi-whole wheat bread, five cereals, special breads) and/or gourmet pizza (we boast more than 50 different recipes).
Our course is extremely practical and includes working directly alongside our master baker, who will illustrate in depth the techniques for leavening with organic flours and sourdough starter. These extra-long leavening techniques, an extreme rarity in the local territory (Rome has no more than three other bakeries that use them – none in the southern Rome area), have recently earned us rave reviews on the Gambero Rosso channel and a place on Alice Masterchef’s list of Italy’s best pizzerias (plus numerous articles on the Internet).
We’re certain that this important itinerary, when combined with your own commitment and desire to learn, will be a terrific calling card for undertaking this profession with great results, or even just for cultivating your love for what Italians call the “Arte Bianca.”
I tried Elettroforno’s gourmet pizzas on the occasion of the Feast of St. Patrick, and was struck by the beautiful variety of colours and by the quality of the ingredients. A light dough for a fragrant and digestible pizza, made unique by spot-on combinations! I recommend the pizza with a broccoli, olive, and pine nut pesto... and the sesame pizza can’t be beat – it is to be devoured...
Truly excellent pizza, and the bread, too!!! A sure thing!!! The white sesame pizza is a must!!!
Excellent pizzas, unique ideas, highly digestible, and therefore top quality. I have complete faith in the professionalism of the super-polite and friendly people who work there, and the results are EXCELLENT!! Keep it coming!
This establishment’s approach means sitting down and waiting for marvellous pizzas to come out of the oven, one after the other. They will astound you with their high-quality ingredients and by the combination of flavours and colours. Their rice croquettes are also excellent... I particularly liked the one with artichokes! My compliments!!!
A clean and modern establishment for a quick meal. The pizza by the slice is excellent. There is no lack of a variety of "experiments," from pizza with sesame seeds to pizza with garlic and parsley. They’re all excellent. The bakery also makes bread, so you can take home some of the care these people put into their work. Good job!
Quality you can taste! I have yet to find anything as good in Rome! Don’t miss the white pizza with sesame...my daughters devoured it! :)
