Where to Get the Best Pizza in Copenhagen

Where do you go to get the best pizza in Copenhagen? Sure, you can get pizza at almost any fast food restaurant in Copenhagen. If what you’re feeling like is a pile of grease, cheese, and bread (and ther’s nothing wrong with that!), there’s no need to drop more than 75 KR; just pick up a takeaway on pretty much any corner of the city.

But if you’re looking for pizza that’s slightly more up-market, with organic ingredients and seasonal toppings, Copenhagen has some excellent choices.

Here’s where to get Copenhagen’s best pizza:




La Fiorita




Otto Pizza

Baby Babbo

Pizzeria MaMeMi


Madbaren Marmorkirken




List Marker: Number 1Surt

Surt “collaborates with small lactic bacteria and yeasts” to make its sourdough pizza, which, alongside providing a mental image of bacteria in tiny chef hats tossing pizza dough, paints a fairly accurate picture of what Surt is all about. Considering its Carlsberg Byen location – a historical fermentation site in its own right – it’s hardly a surprise.

Surt values small-scale farmers, its tight-knit and dedicated team, excellent flavors, and the tangy kick of an artfully fermented dough.

Opened in 2019 by Giuseppe Oliva, Surt boasts Neopolitan-style bases with authentic Italian toppings, made with local produce and fired in a custom-built pizza oven. For all that technical talk, the pizzas are just damn good: a fluffy, light crust and top-notch toppings that provide hearty and sometimes unexpected combinations.






List Marker: Number 2Pico

Arguably the worst thing about pizza is not being able to eat more than one in one sitting. Enter Pico, the tapas of the pizza world. Here you can choose three (or more; no judgement) from a menu of micro pizzas, giving you a selection of flavors across their organic sourdough base.

There’s a range on offer, including a classic capricciosa, a controversial Hawaiian, and a seasonal pie using the freshest produce available.

Date night or a night in with friends just got easier, with their takeaway offer of six mini pizzas (three pizzas per person is the Pico recommendation) and a bottle of house white or red wine from Vinhanen. Keep the bottle and get it filled back up later!




List Marker: Number 3Baest

Highly acclaimmed, Baest is the brainchild of Relae and Manfred’s og Vin founder Christian Puglisi. All ingredients are local and organic, so there’s no reason to feel guilty about indulging in these heavenly pies.

The crust is soft and chewy with just a hint of crunch. No reservations past 8:30: go early, go often.




List Marker: Number 4Corsa

With two locations in the city, both of which are by the water, delicious Neapolitan-style pizzas, and a menu full of authentic Italian classics like burrata and Aperol spritzes, there’s no better spot in Copenhagen to live La Dolce Vita.

If you’re eating at a less desirable time of year, the restaurant’s simple decor and walls plastered in Italian pop-culture and stills from The Talented Mr Ripley will be enough to transport you to a rocky beach in Sicily.




List Marker: Number 5Baby Babbo

Babbo is an Italian-inspired eatery based in Frederiksberg. It’s a cozy spot that’s a favorite with locals and feels more like you’re at a friend’s place for dinner than at a restaurant.

Baby Babbo produces their own cheeses, ham, sausages and other delicious things in their own little kitchen. There’s so much on the menu to choose from and nothing will disappoint, but their pizza has already gained a reputation for being a jewel in Copenhagen’s pizza crown.




List Marker: Number 6Mother

Known for their sourdough, brick-oven baked crusts, and simple but high-quality toppings, Mother quickly became a darling of the Copenhagen pizza scene. Located in Kødbyen, it’s a great place to go on your way to a bigger night out.

You can’t make a reservation later than 8:30 pm, so get there early on or be prepared to wait at the bar.

Their weekend brunch, which also includes pizza, is worth checking out as well.

List Marker: Number 7Gorm’s

If you’re not into thin-crust pizza, Gorm’s may not be for you. But if you are, their crunchy base is on-point. With two locations – one restaurant and one booth in Torvehallerne – Gorm’s is a great place for a light dinner or quick lunch.

Expert tip: if you get a takeaway at the restaurant, there’s a discount!






List Marker: Number 8Rossopomodoro

If there’s anything better than pizza, it’s eating pizza on a glorious rooftop terrace that overlooks the center of Copenhagen. The pizzas are expertly-made with a soft, chewy, heavenly crust.

The cheese is creamy, the toppings are classic. There’s also a range of antipasti, pastas, and salads. Why not make it a share-with-the-whole-table Italian -style feast? Oh, and do yourself a favor: try the Aperol Spritz.

List Marker: Number 9La Fiorita

With very few seats, La Fiorita is mostly for takeaways. This old-fashioned Italian pizza house serves up the real thing: no crazy baking methods, ingredients, or claims of being “modern.” Just delicious pizza at a good price.




List Marker: Number 10Behov

With two locations – one central and one tucked away in Nordvest, Behov (Danish for “need”) is the kind of locals-love-it spot that makes you feel like an insider when you’re there.

The pizzas themselves are great, with a soft, chewy crust and a number of seasonal toppings, as well as the classic ones. Don’t see a combination you like? No problem – Bevhov lets you build your own pizza, from the base to the cheese to the toppings.

List Marker: Number 11Pizzeria MaMeMi

Opened by two Italian brothers and a cousin in 2017, Pizzeria MaMeMi is all about an authentic Italian neighborhood experience, while creating their own unique take on pizza.

Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside, and always make with organic and seasonal ingredients, the MaMeMi pizza is delicious and a bit unexpected. Head to this pizzeria for a local and relaxed atmosphere. Don’t forget some delicious antipasti and a glass of wine, if you’re in the mood for a full meal!






List Marker: Number 12Otto Pizza

This Neapolitan-style pizzeria, founded by the same team who brought you Jagger, is all about making high-quality pizza that still has a fast-food element to it.

The prices are good for the size and quality that you get. Get yourself a pizza and drink combo; ideal for a weekend treat.

Would you rather make it at home? You can pick up a “cold pizza” in-store and heat it up in the oven.



List Marker: Number 13Madbaren Marmorkirken

Run and owned by the hardest working man on Store Kongensgade who’ll always stop for a chat with his customers, Ayub. Madbaren Marmorkirken is a cozy basement spot opposite Frederik’s Church with a stunning view of the building itself.

The pizzas hit the spot if you’re looking for comfort food, with a perfectly crisp based and rich, cheesy topping.

List Marker: Number 14Neighbourhood

Thin crust doesn’t have to mean less pizza. These massive super-thin crust pizzas have an array of mouth-watering and unexpected toppings. The community-style rustic seating means that this truly does feel like a neighborhood joint. The cocktails are also excellent, so don’t miss out on trying one (or three) while you’re there!
