True Italian Pizza Week 2022: Germany’s biggest pizza event is once again taking place in Munich

Real Italian Pizza Week 2022

True Italian Pizza Week: From September 15 to 21, 2022, the best pizzerias in Germany will celebrate the symbol of Italian cuisine

One week, more than 300 restaurants across Germany, a great offer: €15 for a pizza and a spritz. These are the requirements for the True Italian Pizza Week, which takes place from September 15 to 21 for the sixth time in Germany. After last year’s success (more than 25,000 menus sold), this year’s True Italian Pizza Week will be held in the same 12 German cities (Berlin, Leipzig, Hamburg, Hanover, Munster, Munich, Nuremberg, Stuttgart, Cologne, Frankfurt, Düsseldorf and Mannheim ) takes place. ) and in restaurants across Germany that wanted to participate. Instead of appearing as competitors, the best pizzerias in Germany joined forces to celebrate the qualities of real Italian pizza with an event.

It is not about the nationality of the pizza maker or the owner, but about the choice of ingredients (first things first: top quality tomato sauce and real mozzarella or fiordilatte), the preparation of the dough and its resting time (at least 12 hours) and the oven (if it is not a wood-fired oven, the oven should cook the pizza in a few minutes so that the ingredients do not lose their flavor). The True Italian Pizza Week is the biggest event in Germany dedicated to the symbol of Italian cuisine (Neapolitan pizza has also been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2017).

Real Italian Pizza Week 2022: How it works. The True Italian Pizza Week 2022 will take place from 15 to 21 September in selected pizzerias in the various cities. During this week you can taste a special menu in the participating restaurants: an authentic Italian pizza (there are always two types to choose from) together with an Aperol Spritz or a non-alcoholic Crodino for only €15. A ticket for the event is not required, you just need to go to the participating venues and ask about the event’s offer. A special map is also available for each city, both as a flyer and on Google Maps: it shows all the pizzerias participating in the event.
