True Italian Pizza Week 2019

4th – 10th April 2019

32 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 pistacchi, amatriciana, parmigiana, cacio 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 honor one of the symbols of the Italian gastronomic culture with a special initiative involving the best pizzerias in the German capital.

The event

True Italian Pizza Week Berlin will take place from April 4th to 10th in all of the 32 participating restaurants (please scroll down to discover all pizzerias and their pizzas on offer). 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€. There are also some special offers for just 10€, scroll down to discover them all! 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.

The map

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 starting from 10 days before the event. Or you can download it as PDF at this link.

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.
