The weekend is approaching. Or it’s late night hunger craves…You are in the mood for Pizza. Who isn’t??? What wine matches best with Pizza? So many great options!
It happens all the time you are waiting for pizza delivery… Of course you need to have some wine on hand.
Try a reasonably priced Chianti, Pinot Noir, or Gamay. A light body, low tannin wine with high acidity The acidity of these wines compliments the tomato sauce nicely and the mouthfeel allows the savory flavors of your Pizza to shine.
Also, lighter wines like Italian Barbera and Frappato are phenomenal with Neapolitan style pizza where and Nero d'Avola is rock solid with a meat lovers pizza.
If your pizza has mushrooms…the earthy style Pinot Noir, it's especially delicious. A Mouvedre is another option too…Which might lead to a Rhone night of wine with your Pizza; trying something complimentary like a spicy Syrah or Grenache with a pepperoni pizza
I want to leave with a favorite! A total explosion. Red Lodi or Dry Creek Zinfandel. Tons of fruit, tons of power! Goes great with spicy sausage, grilled onions...Think the oven flavors that come with a toasted crust too. Just plain good.
