1. Gorms

The menu offers creative and Nordic-inspired pizza which is easily some of the best you’ll taste in the country. We suggest you try a Gorm’s classic “Giro di Italia”, where you are served the best snacks, antipasti and gourmet pizzas from the menu, and the dishes keep on coming until you say stop!

Each location of Gorms (there’s several!) has its own speciality pie. The Aarhus restaurant’s pizza comes with air-dried pork, Jerusalem artichoke in gremolata, browned butter and hazel nuts.

2. Fratelli Pizzeria

With two locations in the city, it should come as no surprise that this place is popular for good reason. Thin, crispy and absolutely bursting with flavour this is one meal that you are seriously going to enjoy.

Plus, as well as the usual toppings, Fratelli Pizzeria offers a tasty selection of vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and lactose-free pizzas.

3. Pizza Propria

Pizza Propria aims to raise the quality level of pizza in Denmark, and we can safely say they’re succeeding. A wood-fired oven from Florence churns out their thin bases pies in under two minutes, just the way it should be done.

Classical toppings include fennel salami, buffalo ricotta, arugula and truffle oil. It’s a feast for the senses with every single bite.

5. ILD.PIZZA – Skejby

ILD’s pizzas are super authentic and stick to the principles of Neapolitan cooking so tightly that you could easily be sitting in Naples when eating here.

It’s all about the dough, which they prove for over a day in advance, resulting in that perfect springy and spongey crust. Grab one to go and you’ll see what we mean… Absolute world-class perfection.

6. Piccolina

Cafe Piccolina is consistently named as one of the best places for pizza in Aarhus, and we can see why. The dough is nicely chewy with a crispy crust.

Top picks? It’s gotta be the ‘Tartufo’ with mozzarella, truffle salami, truffle oil, mushrooms, fresh tomatoes and oregano, or the ‘Customers’ with roasted smoked ham, gorgonzola and marinated artichokes.

7. Pizza Hytten

The pizzas here are the real deal when it comes to authentic Italian pies: the owners are Sicilian and they bake the pizza in a woodfired oven for the perfect finish. Pizza Hytten proves the dough for 72-hours too, so it’s light as air. Then, toppings include buffalo mozzarella, spicy salami or Italian sausage.

It’s a must-visit place for a feast in Aarhus.
