Pizzaballa started his club career with Atalanta B.C., where he became one of the Serie A's top Italian goalkeepers, before moving to A.S. Roma in 1966. He subsequently played for Hellas Verona F.C. and A.C. Milan, and he finished his career back at Atalanta, earning 275 appearances in Serie A. In his career he won 4 Coppa Italia trophies (one with Atalanta, one with Roma, and two with Milan), a Serie B title with Atalanta, and a European Cup Winners' Cup with Milan.
He earned one cap for the Italy national football team on the 18th June 1966, coming on as a substitute against Austria, and was in the Italian squad at the 1966 FIFA World Cup, although he did not play a match in the competition, as he was a backup to Enrico Albertosi. He received little space with the national side due to the presence of many notable goalkeepers during his time, in addition to Albertosi, such as Lorenzo Buffon, Fabio Cudicini, Carlo Mattrel, Anzolin, Giuliano Sarti, Lido Vieri, and Dino Zoff.
He also achieved fame throughout his career because of his iconic surname, and as his Italian footballing card was extremely difficult to obtain.
