Margherita Pizza

This authentic pizza is the perfect pizza to pair with a medium-bodied wine such as a Sangiovese or a  Pinot Grigio. Pairing your Margherita pizza with a medium-bodied wine will assist in bringing out the acidity in the tomato sauce! Another wine that will pair well with this classic pizza is a dry Rosé. Picking the best wine to go with your pizza will help bring out the flavors of the sauce and fresh basil!

Pepperoni Pizza

Enhancing the flavors of a spicy, and robust pepperoni pizza, you’re best wine choice will be a  Sangiovese, a medium-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon, or an Italian Chianti. With wines like these there will be plenty of character and flavor to cut through the fat and richness of a pepperoni pizza!

Vegetarian Pizza

A pizza topped with veggies, you can rely on the best wine being a crisp Sauvignon Blanc to assist with the acidity of the vegetables like onions, tomatoes, olives, peppers, and mushrooms. Also, a Chardonnay pair very will with vegetarian pizzas! There are many different wines that pair well with a veggie pizza, finding the perfect one for you is essential for your pizza night!

Meat Lovers Pizza

For a meat lovers pizza packed with flavor, a bold wine that has a high tannin profile will work well with the delicious meat toppings. Some great wines to pair with a meat lovers pizza would be a Merlot, Syrah, Zinfandel, or a full-bodied Napa Cabernet. You don’t want to choose a wine that overpowers your pizza, or messes with the flavors you’re looking for!

White Sauce Pizza

Considering white sauce pizzas are less acidic than the traditional tomato sauce, a lighter wine is a great pair for these pizzas! Choosing a Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Champagne, or other light wines are great matches for a white sauce pizza. These light, white wines will help elevate the richness of the white sauce as well as adding some fruity, fresh flavors from the wine itself!
