Best pizzas in Berlin
Gazzo is a sourdough craft-pizza restaurant in Neukölln who believe in sourcing artisanal produce – local when available, but always delicious, sustainable and natural. The end result is a unique blend of German precision with Italian flair. An absolute joy of a restaurant.
This is proper Neapolitan style pizza served up in chilled surroundings. Especially enjoyable in the summer time when served outdoors in the sunshine. One of life’s great pleasures is tucking into those pillowy crusts.
The pizza oven here is pretty unique – it’s built with unique bricks made from volcanic ashes on Mount Vesuvius and assembled by master crafter in Naples, who proudly refers to it as “the Ferrari of ovens”. The range of pizzas is outstanding, with only the best Italian ingredients.
It’s a classic.
The pizza here is anything but standard – in fact, it tastes as good as you’ll find in Naples. The dough is left to rest for 24 -30 hours and they hand crush the tomatoes for the rich sauce. The super 4 Formaggi is a real treat: a white pie with four kinds of cheeses and braised radicchio with red wine.
Nowhere else will you see a woodburning oven that looks like a disco ball. This Neukölln pizzeria is a solid choice for traditional Neapolitan pies with premium toppings. The pizza menu is small, but when you use Fior di Latte cheese and San Marzano tomatoes as good as these, you don’t need much else.
Looking for something a little different? Gasthaus Figl take inspiration from the northern parts of Italy where it meets Germany – think rich, Alsatian/Tyrol food. Their hefty pizzas use incredible German ingredients. Try the white Tyrol special: blood sausage, apple slices, bacon cubes, leeks, red onions, mountain cheese and some sour cream, with fresh chives added after baking.
For an authentic Neapolitan pizza in Berlin, this is one of the top places to go. It’s got a cult following of fans who can’t get enough of the chewy crusts and melting buffalo mozzarella. The Schöneberg hotspot is recognised by Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana for its traditional pizza methods.
Woodfired and to your table in just two minutes? Amazing.
