May 23, 2023 – The round, delicious dough topped with all kinds of different ingredients that we call pizza is certainly one of the most popular dishes on the planet. The Croatian capital offers many, but it seems a certain Zagreb pizza places knows how to do it just right.

As Poslovni/punkufer write, great pizza can be found everywhere, but the chances are equally high that you will come across one that is not worth it. That’s why it pays to listen to the experts from the site, who have been choosing the best pizzas of the old continent for years, and have just come out with their 2023 ranking.

However, before announcing the winner, it is important to note that when choosing the best pizza in Europe, pizzerias located in Italy are not included. Simply put, the list is designed so that it does not include Italian places that make the original margheritas, marinara, etc.

And the winner is Pizzeria Sartorii Panatieri in Barcelona’s Gracia district. Their pizza with roasted cherry tomato sauce, mozzarella and basil won the gold medal.

Second place went to Copenhagen’s Baest, where chef Christian Puglisi draws inspiration from Neapolitan pizzas and adds his signature sourdough base and organic toppings. The winner of the bronze medal is 50 Kalo, a pizzeria not far from Trafalgar Square in London where pizza master Ciro Salvo is in charge of the pizzas.

Only a few hours from Croatia you can get to the fourth-ranked pizzeria located in Vienna. That is the Via Toledo Enoppizzeria, where you will taste quality wine to accompany top-quality pizzas. The Zulu Pizzeria in Furth, Germany took the fourth place. The man behind the menu, Gaspare Squitieri, is considered one of Germany’s greatest Neapolitan pizza experts.

We are, of course, especially pleased that a Croatian pizzeria made it onto this list. Zagreb’s Franko’s Pizza & Bar took spot 43, so head on over there for a top pizza experience.

Among Croatia’s neighbours, Macedonian pizzeria Matto Napoletano, Belgrade’s Majstor and Margarita and Pietra, and Ljubljana’s Pop’s Pizza made it on the list. You can find the full list here.
