Pizza probably wasn’t topping your list of things to try in Copenhagen but if you consider yourself a foodie of any sort, then you’ll want to add Bæst on Nørrebro to your itinerary. It comes from Christian Puglisi, the former Noma hotshot chef and man behind Relæ, and has Kris Schram from Napa Valley fave Terra in the kitchen. Not your average dollar-slice joint.

Hawaiian, bolognese or quattro stagionis? No, organic certification is the new big thing in gastronomy and it’s the mantra lived by here, combined with the usual new Nordic ethos. So this is your chance to experiment with toppings like brussels sprouts, kale and elderflower added to the perfectly baked sourdough bases. Different, yet familiar, and very, very good.

The real star, however, both on the pies and by itself, is Bæst’s own mozzarella that’s made in-house from biodynamic milk. OK, technically it’s fior di latte. It’s a delicacy. They also use the upstairs production space for making some very tasty charcuterie, nose-to-tail style. Try it as à la carte starters or choose one of the tasting menus that also let you sample some of the other non-pizza dishes.

It might seem like an unlikely introduction to Copenhagen’s burgeoning food scene but also representative of the diversification now taking place. Try it out, even if it’s just a slice in the ground floor Mirabelle bakery (open throughout the week) or the cheapest DKK 85 pizza. Or make it a full-out dining experience, rounded out with a few cocktails.
