An Italian classic, served with a Trentino twist
Local ingredients, inventive flavours, and an attention to detail make our pizzerias unmissable
If you think you know pizza, think again. Here in Trentino, we’re pushing the boundaries of what this classic Italian meal can offer, with bases made from spelt and kamut, as well as ordinary flour, and toppings which bring together some of our best local produce. Look out for Trentingrana cheese, olive oil from Lake Garda and even venison prosciutto.
