Copenhagen can feel like the furthest possible place from Italy when the unrelenting winter has offered just five hours of sunshine and three days without rain in a month. Despite this, Italian food and aperitif culture have rooted themselves here. After the stracciatella boom of the early 2000s, pizzerias have continued to pop up. Ma Me Mi is one of the newer options, making some of the lesser-known but arguably best pies in the city. The team here makes pizza using traditional Roman methods, including a blend of flours for the dough, and delicious if unexpected toppings like pork cheek and leek ash. There’s even a potato pizza, a version loved by Scandinavians – and just about anyone else who tastes it. And this autumn, you can try it at Rødder og Vin: bar in Nørrebro. The city’s best natural wine shop-cum-bar is collaborating with Ma Me Mi, so you can enjoy your pizza with a glass of something funky.
