Zealand's Best Pizza

best pizza

In our quest to find Denmark's Best Pizza Places, we have divided the vote into regions and including some of the major cities. This means that not only do we choose the best pizza toast in Denmark, but also in North Jutland, Central Jutland, South Jutland, Funen and Zealand, as well as Aalborg, Aarhus, Odense and Copenhagen.

Below you can see the nominees and not least vote for your favorite pizzasted on Zealand and islands (Lolland, Falster, Bornholm and others).

You can also click through to the other polls and see how things have gone there.

Zealand's Best Pizza

Every year we find and name the best places to eat pizza on Zealand. This is done by a popular vote, where you can vote for your favorite via SMS. See the annual winners below.


The program for the 2021 vote looked like this:

  • Nomination phase: 14 December 2020 at 12.00 - 15 January 2021 at 12.00
  • Voting: 14 January 2021 at 12.00 - 28 January 2021 at 12.00
Due to uncertainty about the validity of some votes, we had to postpone the decision. You can read a lot about it during this presentation of Zealand's Best Pizza 2021:

Congratulations to:

Nostro, Grevinge


The top 10 ended as follows:

UPDATE 28/1 at 11.44

NOTE! We have received many votes in the last 24 hours and we are in the process of investigating whether these are real telephone numbers and everything has gone fairly. Therefore, the position below is temporary!

When this box is removed, the result is final.

UPDATE 28/1 at 21.31

The excitement has been long overdue, and you have to arm yourself with a little more patience.

Tomorrow at At 12.00, however, we are ready to show the final position and reveal the winners of Denmark's Best Pizza 2021, together with an account of what has happened, what we have done about it and why.

UPDATE 29/1 at 10.54

We are currently experiencing a delay on the telephone network in connection with our investigation of votes, and therefore we are being delayed with our final position.

We expect to be ready at 15.00


What happened?

In the last days of this year's vote, we experienced irregularities, e.g. in the form of many voices at night. Therefore, we launched a deeper investigation, where we found that many of the phone numbers that have been used to vote were no longer contactable, but e.g. went directly to voicemail. Furthermore, we could see that many of these came shortly after each other, which is why there was reason to believe that e.g. has been using talk time cards, which is prohibited under our rules. If the vote was to have any credibility, we had to bulldoze the whole vote, and that required the development of our system.

What have we done?

To ensure a valid vote, we have expanded our system so that it can resend a confirmation text message to all the phone numbers that have been used to vote for nominees. We have subsequently sent text messages to all the numbers that have voted in places that received over 250 votes. Some of you receive the text message twice, as the system double-checks in the event of temporary outages on the telephone network and the like.
All these text messages have been sent out this morning / noon on 29 January. All the phone numbers that the system has not been able to deliver the SMS to in two rounds within 20 minutes (eg because they are no longer in a mobile phone) have been removed in the final position, so that we only count votes from all of you that sits behind your screen.

So haven't the pizza places that have had voices removed cheated?

It may be reasonable to believe that it is the nominees themselves who have cheated, but here we must keep in mind that many others may also have reason to influence the vote - e.g. because you want the title for your city / region or just want to wreak havoc. Therefore, we can not disqualify anyone on this basis, but simply disqualify the votes.

What now?

We hope that this can be a lesson for all those who have tried to circumvent our set of rules, and at the same time be a testimony that even though we at OpdagDanmark make these polls for fun and to draw attention to the many good places in our country, we are also aware of the significance of these polls - and the last thing we want is for the polls to mislead people.

For full transparency, we list below the complete and final position.

  1. Heidi

    Hmm, have not received any text messages today, and do not use talk time cards. So it seems not quite walkable. Got an SMS when I voted the other day. But otherwise not

  2. Charlotte

    Zealand's best pizzaria is clearly Nostro in Gundestrup at the end of the Lammefjord dam. Original Italian style. Finish with dull boiled grated ham. Quality is served here, from Parma ham and cut beef to large leaves of basil and grated truffle. The burgers, lasagna and tiramisu are just as amazing.

  3. Peter

    Cantinos Pizza in Kirke Hyllinge,
    They make a wonderfully crispy bottom.
    It is the only pizza from Zealand I will serve to friends and family.

  4. gastronomia italiana skovlunde, is among denmark's best

    good flour
    good dough
    go tomato sauce
    good oven, wood-burning, forno e legna
    a pizza is in itself a secret, sometimes the wait is over an hour, always busy

  5. Out in the country in a small spot called Gundestrup - a little north of Holbæk on the old road towards Odden, is the most amazing little eatery. Formerly a traditional grill bar until a young couple with visions and drive took over and changed the concept to really delicious food, where most are made from scratch. In the local area we love the food, and hope others will roll in on the way to or from Odden / Århus. PS. There is also food for the vegetarians.

  6. How in the world is Center Grillen from Humlebæk not nominated?
    Fantastic and legendary for several years…

    1. Discover Denmark's editorial staff

      Hello Jesper.

      Center Grillen from Humlebæk had not been nominated for the 2020 vote and is therefore not on the list.

      I have added them to the list of nominees in the 2021 poll.

      Really good day and thanks for your interest.

  7. It's quite off that the wood-fired pizza from The Pizza Bro at Bryggen is not nominated!

    1. Discover Denmark's editorial staff

      Well, that's only because no one has nominated them before you, Line. The Pizza Bro is now added to the list. Thanks for your contribution!

Rules and conditions for voting at Discover Denmark

Due to great interest in some of our polls and thus increased competition to get to the top of the polls, we have made this page to determine what is allowed and not allowed, as well as what we do to prevent cheating.

If you have a question that you cannot find an answer to below, you are more than welcome to write to us at info@wordpress-378369-3668824.cloudwaysapps.com.


You can vote for all your favorites - but only once

Can you vote multiple times?

To prevent cheating and the ability to vote countless times, our voting module requires you to confirm your votes by text message. That way you can only vote once per. telephone number per place, and that way we get a fair vote.

Why do I need to confirm with SMS?

In order to prevent cheating with the polls while at the same time making it as easy and anonymous to vote as possible, we have introduced an SMS control when you vote. End of polls where you can vote multiple times and cheat by clearing cookies or cheating with ip address. With our SMS check, anyone with a mobile number can cast a vote.

All telephone numbers are anonymized in the database. Read more about this in our cookie and privacy policy.

Why aren't all the places involved?

Discover Denmark's polls are through nominations. Unless there are some who will vote in one place, then there is no reason to include it in the list. Especially because we get some incredibly long lists.

On the pages of the polls, you will find up to the time of the poll itself a box where you can nominate your favorite. Once the voting is underway, it is no longer possible to nominate. Here it is only possible to vote for those who were nominated.

Is it free to join?

Of course, it's free. Everyone should be able to participate in their category on equal terms. Therefore, it never costs to join the polls, and since we place great importance on credibility, it is obviously not possible to buy more votes with us.

What must / must not do to get more votes?

With OpdagDanmark's polls, we intend to find the best places in Denmark. We find them by reaching out to people who, through their own experience, can recommend their favorites. However, creative initiatives such as the purchase of talk time cards, competitions and attractive prizes, etc. can undermine this and cause people to vote in places without knowing the place.

To avoid this, we have created lists that describe the things that must and must not:

You may not:

  • Use contests, offers and discounts in connection with Discover Denmark's polls
  • Provide / offer products / services free of charge to people in exchange for getting them to vote
  • Buy talking time cards to vote many times.

You can:

  • Boost your postings regarding the poll on social media
  • Use a prize issued by Discover Denmark ifm. the vote to market your own participation

These rules apply to everyone, nominated or non-nominated. If you experience cheating, contact us at info@wordpress-378369-3668824.cloudwaysapps.com

We regularly check and contact people who have voted to make sure no cheating is done.
If we discover large quantities of unreachable, similar phone numbers, we reserve the right to remove them.

Are you in doubt as to whether an action violates our rules? So don't hesitate to write to us at info@wordpress-378369-3668824.cloudwaysapps.com or phone 70 60 53 32.

For nominees:

On the 1st violation of the above rules, the nominee gets a warning and the votes are removed for the entire day the rule was violated, as well as the subsequent 3 days (or until the competition, offer or the like is completely removed).

In the event of a second violation of the rules, the nominee is disqualified, removed from the list and can only participate again the following year.

For non-nominees:

We have seen examples where non-nominees and businesses want to help their favorite get on the road and inadvertently violate the above rules. In these cases, it is necessary to separate unlawful votes without damaging the nominee's own efforts, and OpdagDanmark will remove a quantity based on time and number of votes at its discretion. We then clearly draw attention to the case, who has broken the rules and when and how many votes we have removed. Therefore: read the rules and don't break them!

Tips and advice for the nominees

There are many ways in which, as a nominee, you can improve your chance of getting enough votes to appear on our map of Denmark's best in its category & #8211; and maybe even end up winning. We have gathered here a number of measures that have been used by previous winners:

Share more than once. It is rare for a post to reach all your followers on social media. Therefore, you may want to encourage people to vote multiple times. Failure to do so too often and in succession will not be considered spam. We also hear from previous winners that the postings are really good at activating followers, so you get more interaction on your Facebook page and good conversations with customers.

Ask the network for help. Many local / loyal customers would rather than spread your message and get more votes. As nominated in a poll, you get a unique SMS code and it is easy to share in your channels, offline as online.

Link to the poll from your website. Your website is the hub for many of your most loyal customers. With a link to the poll, you can secure an extra boost to the number of votes.

Ask for help from local news media. Positive attention to a particular place is also positive attention to the area. That is why your local newspaper, tourist office etc. also has something to gain by helping the nominees in their area. If you have them share your post / link to the poll, it can greatly improve your chances. We see many examples of this.

Privacy policy in connection with polls

To be able to make polls where you can nominate and vote for your favorites while we exclude attempts at cheating and the like, we use tools that use cookies and where you provide some non-sensitive information. You can read much more about our general cookie and privacy policybut, for good measure, we have included that part of the policy that applies to polls, then there is complete transparency.

Here's what you should be aware of:

& #8211; If you nominate a candidate via the comment box, you enter information about name, email address, and possibly website and commentary. This information is stored together with registration of IP address (for protection against spam) in our database

& #8211; When you vote, information about time, phone number and voice dialing is stored in our database, which only Discover Denmark has access to. We do this purely in order to show the number of votes and find a winner. None of this information is disclosed to 3rd party. 

& #8211; To prevent cheating, we continually check and contact some of the phone numbers that have been used to vote. Therefore, we may call you if you have voted.

You do not provide any sensitive information when you participate in our polls. The name, telephone number, mail and ip address are counted as personal data and we have therefore taken all security measures to ensure that no one besides OpdagDanmark's trusted employees can access this data.

We continually delete data from our polls when they are no longer used on the site.
