The second place in 50 Top Pizza Europe 2023 went to Baest, the pizzeria that the Italian Christian Puglisi has in Copenhagen (Denmark). Chef Christian Puglisi managed to create a real style in the world of pizza. His Neapolitan-inspired pizza has been turned into a Northern European key with a rich dough and a more intense taste with a hint of bitterness due to the targeted combinations.
At Baest, almost everything is organic and produced at Fattoria delle idee, even the salami and mozzarella are homemade. The weekend brunch formula combined with the offer of natural wines as an accompaniment to the pizza, as well as the cocktails, have proven to be a real success.

The creators of the list believe that Via Toledo Enopizzeria, with its gourmet pizza, has constantly raised the bar, year after year, remaining one of the best pizzerias in Europe and the world. The wide selection of wines listed on the menu is combined with various pizzas and this represents an additional strength of Via Toledo.

Here, the fried dishes are always perfect, the atmosphere is full of life, and the service very attentive.
6. Figurato Brothers - Madrid (Spain)
The relationship between Madrid and pizza has never been so strong thanks to the excellent quality that Riccardo and Vittorio Figurato bring to their presentations. The Figurato brothers, of Italian origin, brought a breath of Italian spirit to the capital of Spain. The location is simply furnished, but neat and reminiscent of the Neapolitan tradition. Their pizza has a large crust that melts in your mouth. The timeless margherita and pizza with provola and pepper must be tried. The desserts are homemade and a good espresso will immediately catapult you to the middle of southern Italy.
7. Forza - Helsinki (Finland)
On one of the middle class streets in Helsinki, the Salla and Luca Platania restaurant has become an absolute landmark in the city. In fact, here the Romanian tradition of pan pizza and wonderful cakes, executed to perfection meets the contemporary Neapolitan tradition of round pizza with local products. The fantastic doughs are aromatic and fragrant. The enormous dedication that Luca has put into his work, especially in recent years, can really be seen. Special care is given to the selection of drinks, with many Italian labels. Must try "Maritozzo", possibly one of the best desserts you will ever taste.

Thanks to its refined furniture and large windows overlooking the oven, the location is very welcoming.

9. nNea - Amsterdam (Netherlands)
The place is narrow and long, furnished in a welcoming manner. The success of this pizzeria can be seen in the fact that you have to reserve a place online several months in advance. The service is efficient and attentive. If you enjoy a modern Neapolitan pizza with a large crust, you are in the right place. I tried the ball of fried pasta with potatoes and provola. Among the types of pizza, we recommend Provola and pepper or Oro di Bufala, ideal for enjoying the purity of the ingredients and the softness of the dough. The beer selection is adequate, and the wine list is varied and of high quality.

A warm and welcoming atmosphere will greet you in this pizzeria in Barcelona with an Italian heart.
