    pretended not to know/recognize me

    I wonder why he pretended not to ______ (know, recognize) me at first when I said hello to him in the street.

    The given answer is 'recognize', but I would think 'know' works well too. Am I right?

    Could I ask native speakers to help me please? Thank you in advance.
