For one week there will be a special offer in 20 of the best pizzerias of Düsseldorf: with 12€ you can choose over two types of special pizzas and an Aperol Spritz. After the success of the last year we are glad to announce to you all the second edition of the True Italian Pizza Week Düsseldorf.

Pizza with tomato sauce, mozzarella, goat cheese, pear, arugula and walnuts either pizza with tomato sauce, mozzarella, raw ham, onions and peppers or pizza with tomato sauce, mozzarella, onions, gorgonzola, parsley, spicy salami and parmesan or even pizza with mozzarella, Mezzomar’s cream, carpaccio, basil, and pesto, or pizza with tomato sauce, roasted salmon and arugula…

These are just some of the exceptional pizzas offered at True Italian Pizza Week, which arrives again in Dusseldorf after the success of last year’s first edition. The event will also take place simultaneously in Berlin and in 10 other German cities: Hamburg, Hannover, Frankfurt, Münster, Leipzig, Cologne, Mannheim, Nümberg, Koln, Stuttgart and Munich. When? From 9th to 15th September 2021. The aim of the event is to make known and celebrate Pizza as the emblem of the gastronomic culture of our Belpaese, symbol of the Italian excellence and from 2017 also recognised by UNESCO as World Heritage, throughout Germany. So there will be many pizzerias involved, ingredients and doughs are already chosen but the formula will always be the same: you’ll have to choose between two types of authentic Italian pizzas, that will be accompanied by an Aperol Spritz, at the special price of 12 €.

True Italian Pizza Week, how it works

The True Italian Pizza Week Dusseldorf will take place from September 9th until September 15th in all the 20 participating restaurants and simultaneously in Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne, Leipzig, Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Hannover, Manheim, Nurnberg, Munster and Munich. Taking advantage of the offer is very easy: you’ll only have to decide the restaurant where you want to eat, go there during the event’s week and ask for the True Italian Pizza Week menu with two different pizza types (a vegetarian or vegan option is always available), and an Aperol Spritz or an alcohol-free drink for 12€ only. Scroll down to read the full list of the participating restaurants.

True Italian Pizza Week, the map

During the True Italian Pizza Week’s 7-days festival, everyone will be provided with a city metro map in which the stations are replaced by the pizzerias taking part with their pizza offer. On the front of the flyer, you can also find the list of the participating restaurants together with their opening times, addresses and pizza offers. The map will be available in all participating restaurants, as a PDF at this link, and on Google Maps.

Save the map for your next pizza nights, also outside the event!

True Italian Pizza Week, take part and win!

This year, hoarding a flyer is even more convenient! Every time you visit a partecipating pizzeria, ask for a small sticker of the pizza and put it on the flyer next to the name of the pizzeria you have visited. If you collect at least 3 stickers you can send the picture of your flyer to the e-mail trueitaliancontest@gmail.com and take part to the selection of a suprise Aperol package. But, on the occasion of the True Italian Pizza Week 2021, this it won’t be the only event organized by True Italian! As usual it will be possible to join an Instagram contest too: by taking a picture in one of the participating restaurant and by posting it on your own Instagram profile, might make you win a trip to Naples (flight and stay in hotel). More information will be given soon on this channel or on True Italian’s social.

True Italian Pizza Week, organizers and partners

The event is organized by Berlin Italian Communication within the project True Italian in collaboration with Campari Deutschland. It is supported by the Italian Culture Institutes in Germany.

The True Italian Project

True Italian is a network that aims to preserve authentic Italian restaurants found in Berlin through its brand (registered in the Deutsches Patent und Markenamt, the German patent and trademarks office), as well as a number of other initiatives and events held throughout the year. True Italian is made up of all the ambassadors of Italian cuisine who, starting from the product selection, show their passion for spreading the culture of “good eating”. Let’s be clear: when it comes to True Italian at the center there is not the nationality of the cook/ manager or owner, but the approach to the kitchen. Creativity in the recipes and high-quality ingredients: these are the key focus points for True Italian restaurants.
