Pairing Wine with Pizza
Wine and Pizza is a classic pairing combination but what wine should you choose to go with your topping of choice? We tried and tested many combinations in our Knutsford shop and this is what we discovered...
1. Margherita Pizza
WINE: Dry Rosé
WHY: Lighter reds and fresh Rose wine is the perfect combination for this lightly flavoured pizza with fresh ingredients such as basil.
2. Pepperoni Pizza
WHY: Because of the fat content of pepperoni, it imbues its flavour throughout the cheese on every slice. You’ll need a strong wine with intense flavours to counterbalance ‘the pepperoni effect’.
3. Hawaiian Pizza
WHY: Riesling acts as a palate cleanser and the sweetness of the Riesling will elevate your ham pineapple experience to a new level.
4. Barbecue Chicken Pizza
WHY:fruit forward wine, is what you should be looking for when pairing with a sweeter style BBQ sauce.
5. Sausage Pizza
WHY: If you are, chances are you might also like bolder red wines too, so it’s lucky that they go so well together.
