The Best Pizzerias in the World

Bæst – Copenhagen, Denmark

The cold Nordic country of Denmark is known for its culinary excellence, but even with that reputation, it seems unusual that one of the world’s best pizzerias is located in the capital city of Copenhagen. The pizzas at Bæst are made Italian-style, meaning thin, hand-stretched crusts baked until marked with delicious charred edges, and topped with handmade toppings and sauce.

Head chef Christian Puglisi recently invested in a herd of cows, whose milk goes towards making the incredibly fresh, hand-pulled mozzarella that tops every pie. He also sources local flour to make the dough and uses charcuterie that’s made from local pork.

Pizzeria La Notizia – Naples, Italy

It takes a lot for food critics around the world to declare somebody a “world-renowned pizza expert,” but Enzo Coccia definitely fits the bill. His Naples-based Pizzeria La Notizia is located in a quiet neighborhood, but regularly receives visitors from around the world who come for his incredible pizza.

A master of the Neapolitan style, his pies feature a generous amount of toppings, which is unusual in a world where most pizzas feature a slick of sauce, cheese, and a scattering of basil leaves. Some of his most popular pies are the pizza due funghi, topped with an assortment of mushrooms, and pizzas with sausage, pepperoni, and eggplant.

Bráz Pizzaria – Sao Paulo, Brazil

Bráz Pizzaria is so popular throughout Brazil that restaurant owners have opened up eight in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. The key ingredients including the flour and tomatoes for sauce are imported from Italy, but the chefs have made sure to include a variety of local toppings that will appeal to people with less adventurous palates. The menu is split into Italian-style pies like the Marguerite and Neapolitan, which are both topped with Italian cheeses, tomato sauce, and basil, and Brazilian-style pies, which include ingredients like boiled eggs, escarole, and Catupiry cheese.
