Per Werner Pedersen (born 30 March 1969) is a Danish former footballer who played the majority of his career for Danish clubs Odense BK and Lyngby BK. Pedersen scored two goals in six games for the Danish national team between 1991 and 1997.

He moved back to Denmark to play for Odense BK, where he suffered a career-ending injury, and retired in June 2001.
