Pizza, Spritz and Amaro 12€: 32 Berlin pizzerias’ offer for the True Italian Pizza Week 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.

True Italian Pizza Week 2019: the new pizzerias and the importance of tradition

True Italian Pizza Week offers a deep insight into different kinds of pizza existing in Italy. For example you will find in the event pizzerias making the traditional Neapolitan pizza like Malafemmena, Prometeo and Monella as well as historical Italian restaurants in Berlin like Muntagnola and Francucci who really made a study on the dough finding the perfect mix among different flours to get a light and fragrant pizza. You can also find Pizzare, which everyday uses modern techniques to realize the perfect pizza, Rosso Berlin, which offers the typical crunchy pizza (“pinsa”) from Rome, or Luisa Kocht with its typical Neapolitan fried pizza. Since the last edition of the event there are also some new entries. A few months ago were born in Kreuzberg Malafritta, completely dedicated to Neapolitan fried food, by the owner of Malafemmena Emmanuele, in Friedrichshain the Neapolitan pizzeria Futura by the former pizza maker of Standard Alessandro, in Mitte Marina Blu by Mimmo, already owner of the famous Italian restaurants in Mitte Contadino Sotto le Stelle and Mozzarella Bar, while in Schöneberg Trattoria LuNa by Luigi Dirma, one of the pizza makers of the “German National Team” of Pizza Schule. The owners of Papà Pane di Sorrento have just opened in Kreuzberg Piazza Papà Pane, while just in time for the Pizza Week Mercato Famous Pizza will open in Prenzlauer Berg, from the same owners of Prometeo. You can find the complete list of the pizzas on offer here below.

Fried pizza at Malafritta

What makes a pizza “True Italian”?

First thing first, pizza is 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.

Pizza Sara (mozzarella, radicchio, gorgonzola, pears and walnuts): only at Prometeo!

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. The project is pursued by Berlin Italian Communication/Berlino Magazine, a point of reference for the Italians and all those passionate about Italy who find themselves in Berlin. 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”. When we talk about True Italian, not only do we focus on the chef/owner’s nationality but also on their approach to food. Creativity in the recipes and high-quality ingredients: these are the key focus points for True Italian restaurants.
