True Italian Pizza Week Berlin, the festival of the best Italian pizzas in Berlin

20 pizzerias, one week, a fixed price: True Italian Pizza Week Berlin wants to celebrate the best and authentic pizzas in Berlin.

Margherita, marinara, napoletana, capricciosa, quattro stagioni, ham and mushrooms, vegetarian: no matter what’s on the top, pizza is the proper symbol of the Italian cuisine. 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.

The event

True Italian Pizza Week Berlin will take place from 6th to 12th of April 2017 in all of the 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 a beer or soft drink paying just 10€. The sponsors of the event are Amaro Lucano and Lavazza: for this reason in many places an Amaro Lucano liqueur is included in the offer and it will also be possible to order a Lavazza espresso for just 1€ more. Following in the footsteps of 72hrs True Italian Food (22-25 September 2016), the event wants to promote the variety and excellence of genuine Italian food in Berlin. The event’s media partners are Berlino Magazine and I Heart Berlin.

The map

During True Italian Pizza Week’s 7-day 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 anytime of the year.

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 produce 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.

What makes the “True Italian” pizza?

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.

Let’s celebrate pizza’s variety

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 (soft, thick border) like Malafemmena, Prometeo, Standard e 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. Or you can find Pizzare, which uses modern techniques to realize everyday the perfect pizza. But we also have high quality “pizzerie al taglio” (pizza slices) like Zia Maria, Jamme Ja with its typical Neapolitan fried pizza, Lima Lima with its “Schiacciata napoletana” and Rawtastic, special guest for all vegan lovers. You can find the complete list of the pizzas on offer here below.
