BEHOV – Meets pizza-lovers’ pizza-needs

If you have actually already explored the northwestern part of Copenhagen, you might’ve noticed that pizza isn’t the most scarce food-offer around here. Actually, you can get pizza on just about every street corner. But GOOD pizza, though…?

In may 2016 this new joint opened up in an atmospheric suburban neighborhood on a quiet street. I really love to get out of the noisy Copenhagen sometimes, and to be able to find idealistic food concepts in unlikely places. Seems like this one is not too blown out of proportion, because it’s well hidden. The name of the place, BEHOV, means “need” and it’s very appropriate!

Easy to grasp: pizza, sandwiches, desserts, beer, cocktails. Build your own pizza or order one of ‘The Untouchables’ that’s already put together from well selected, rich and organic ingredients. The dough is so crisp and thin!

You cross out your selections on a chart and hand it to one of the cheery waiters. There are only a few tables inside, but the main attraction must be the outdoor seating (I mean, look at the picture)! On warm summer evenings, it’s going to be one of my favorite places to go for a drink. The house-beer is specially made for BEHOV by a local brewery, and as a pun on the place’s name, they’ve called the beer PRIMÆR, which means “primary”. Get it…?
