Pizza and beer have been a long-standing pair, but recently there has been a surge in customers requesting which wine to pair with their pizza. Whether you’re eating BBQ chicken pizza or a classic bianco, there are several wine pairing options to make your meal shine. Here are 8 of our most popular pizzas and the perfect wines to pair them with.
Suggested Wine & Pizza Pairings
Wine Pairing: Cabernet Sauvignon
Cheese pizza is the most simple and classic type of pizza, pairing its savory flavor of the red sauce with a wine with high acidity and strong fruit flavors.
Wine Pairing: Cabernet
The strong flavor of pepperoni combined with its high-fat content requires a wine with an intense flavor to balance it out, Cabernet is the perfect selection to balance out the garlic and pepper flavors of the meat.
Wine Pairing: Pinot Noir
The creamy ricotta on the pizza will be heightened by the natural creamy notes of a Pinot Noir.
All Meat Pizza
Wine Pairing: Syrah
Bold pizza toppings call for a bold, full-bodied wine. The intense flavors of a Syrah will intensify the spices in the meat rather than being overpowered.
Ham and Pineapple Pizza
Wine Pairing: Riesling
The sweetness of the Riesling perfectly picks up the tartness of the pineapple and enhances the salty flavor of the ham.
Wine Pairing: Rosé
The light texture of our white pizza pairs perfectly with the simple but effervescent flavors of a rosé. If you prefer to only drink red wines try sticking to wines with less intense flavor options.
BBQ Chicken Pizza
Wine Pairing: Malbec
The sweet, smoky flavors in the BBQ sauce are picked up by the fruit-forward flavor of a Malbec.
Wine Pairing: Sauvignon Blanc
As consumers are being more health-conscious in their pizza ordering styles the number of all veggie pizzas sold has skyrocketed. Light pizza requires a light and tart wine, Sauvignon Blanc fits the bill.
