23rd – 29th April 2020
Around 30 pizzerias, one week, one fixed price: True Italian Pizza Week Berlin is a celebration of the best and authentic pizzas in Berlin.
Regina Margherita, marinara, mortadella e pistachios, amatriciana, parmigiana, cacio e pepe, Bufala, with red wine, squid ink or wholegrain flour dough, with Parma ham, wild boar ham or Lardo di Colonnata: no matter what’s on the top, pizza is the proper symbol of the Italian cuisine and, since 2017 is a Unesco World Heritage thanks to the particular way of preparing it typical of Neapolitan pizza makers. True Italian Pizza Week Berlin aims to honour one of the symbols of the Italian gastronomic culture with a special initiative involving the best pizzerias in the German capital.
True Italian Pizza Week Berlin will take place from April 2nd to 8th in almost 30 participating restaurants. Here you can ask for the event menu: you will have the chance to taste authentic Italian pizza (choosing between two kinds – vegetarian options available) and match it with an Aperol Spritz or a Campari Amalfi and an Amaro Averna paying just 12€. Following in the footsteps of all other True Italian events, the True Italian Pizza Week wants to promote the variety and excellence of genuine Italian food in Berlin.
During the True Italian Pizza Week’s 7-days festival, Berliners will be provided with a city metro map in which the stations are replaced by the pizzerias taking part with their pizza offer. Furthermore, the map can still be used after the event: the True Italian selection of the best Italian pizzerias in Berlin can be useful for those interested in trying the wide Italian gastronomic offer in the city at any time of the year. The map will be available in all participating restaurants and in our office in Gryphiusstr. 23 in Friedrichshain 2 weeks before the event.

What makes a pizza “True Italian”?
First thing first, pizza is a healthy food. If pizza is made following the Italian tradition, it is prepared with a certain amount of yeast and it has many hours of rising time (from 9 to, in certain cases, 72 hours). If after eating a pizza you feel very thirsty or bloating, it means that there was too much yeast or the dough has not risen enough. Unfortunately, it’s not possible to understand it from the flavour, it’s just a matter of digestibility. A True Italian pizza is light, tasty and made with high-quality products only. This is the principle of every restaurant involved in the True Italian Pizza Week.
