Max's Coal Oven Pizzeria: Pizza Making Class & World of Coca-Cola Tour
10:30 am – 4:00 pm
Meet inside the main entrance of Building B at the Georgia World Congress Center. The group will depart together and walk to Max's Coal Oven Pizzeria. 

Our day begins with a visit to Max’s Coal Oven Pizzeria where we’ll take part in a pizza making class. Open since 2009, Max’s signature feature is that they have the only genuine coal-burning oven in Georgia, enabling them to serve perfectly crisp pizzas, and create a unique taste and texture that has been a hallmark of New York City pizzerias for more than a century. Join us for an interactive pizza making class led by Max's talented team of "pizzaiolos" who will guide you through a culinary journey covering the history of pizza, dough stretching and tossing techniques, ingredient selection and insight on the legendary coal burning process. After pizza making, our group will be guided to the World of Coca-Cola for a self-guided tour of the facility and the opportunity to sample dozens of Coca-Cola products from across the globe [Here’s a tip: Make sure you try the “Beverly” cola!].

This site includes King’s birth home, the Ebenezer Baptist Church, and his gravesite. View in‐depth exhibits of the civil rights movement and King’s life and legacy along with poignant documentaries.
