Pizza is most likely one of those dishes we all like and eat no matter where we come from, at least to some extent. We’ve all been there, at the local pizzeria that mistakes those pale pink strips for ham and add pineapple to top it all. But have you ever eaten a pizza so exceptionally delicious you’ve craved for more even when your stomach is so full you cannot breathe? I have.
At the highly popular area of Kødbyen (The Meatpacking district of Copenhagen), among the hip bars and restaurants, you’ll find the aptly named wonderland of rustic Italian food -Mother. Despite the surroundings of the very industrial-looking area, I almost feel like going home to visit an Italian “mamma”. It’s the food that creates the atmosphere – delicious antipasti (if on the menu, try Arancini!), simple concoctions in the dishes of the day (always according to the season) and the dreamy-creamy Tiramisu for dessert.
And did I say pizza? Oh, the pizza! I think the pizza itself deserves its own article, but I’ll leave it to you to go taste it yourself. Their secret is a moist, chewy sourdough base, a wood warmed oven and simple, quality toppings (and no, there’s no pineapple – don’t even ask). And don’t forget your aperitivo – Spritz!
Ps. If you’re around at 17:00 on Friday afternoons, you’re in for a treat ;).
