Fifteen of Berlin’s best pizzerias gathered in one location to celebrate pizza in all its many varieties: from Neapolitan to contemporary pizza, from fried to “a portafoglio” pizza, from vegan toppings to gluten-free dough… The True Italian Pizza Street Festival is back, an event organized by True Italian in collaboration with Ooni and under the patronage of the Municipality of Naples.
The event will take place at Jules B-Part in Gleisdreieck Park (Luckenwalder Str. 6b, 10963 Berlin) on Saturday, July 15 and Sunday, July 16 from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. In 2022, 10 Berlin pizzerias and more than 7,000 visitors participated in the event.
Entry fee is 3 euros and for children under 12 it’s free. This year you will be able to buy tickets in advance on Eventbrite to add the festival in your calendar and avoid queues. See at the end.

For pizza lovers it will be an opportunity to try different types of pizza, with different doughs and garnishes, many vegan options and this year also a gluten-free pizza stand.
There will be something for everyone, as in the pizza festivals in Naples: all pizzerias will offer both margherita (at a fixed price of 9 euros) and marinara (at a fixed price of 8 euros), plus each stand will have the opportunity to offer two gourmet pizzas.
All pizzerias will use Koda 16 ovens from partner brand Ooni, designed for home use but also suitable as portable ovens for the city’s top pizza makers. Thanks to their excellent performance and ability to reach very high temperatures in a short time, pizza cooks in just 60 seconds.
True Italian Pizza Street Festival: pizza workshop
Visitors will also have the opportunity to learn from the best about the art of Neapolitan pizza: in fact, the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana will organize several workshops during the festival with some of its best master pizza makers. It will be an opportunity to get your hands in the dough and try your hand at challenging the best margherita pizza.
