There’s no reason wine needs to be enjoyed with fancy food. In fact, we’re big fans of keeping it simple, and it doesn’t get much simpler (or tastier) than cheesy pizza and a refreshing glass of wine. Sure, it’s an easy, delicious combo, but picking the right wine to pair with your favorite pizza can make a notable difference. The seemingly endless combinations of wine varieties and pizza flavors are just right for sharing and will take your night to a whole new level.
Whether it’s homemade or delivery, we came up with a handful of wine and pizza pairings that are sure to satisfy, so invite the crew, grab a glass, slice and pour, and get tasting.
Cheese Pizza + Pinot Noir
A classic never disappoints. With layers of richness and freshness, this fruit-forward blend pairs well with a traditional cheese pizza.
Veggie Pizza + Chardonnay
Much like fresh veggies, our crisp Chardonnay boasts an impressive lineup of mouthwatering flavors. The two will leave a lasting impression.
Pepperoni Pizza + Merlot
A flavorful and smooth combo – both with hints of smoke and spice. Tomato-based pastas, chicken, beef, and most definitely pepperoni pizza pair delightfully with Merlot.
Margherita Pizza + Pinot Grigio
Our Pinot Grigio’s crispness primes the palate for food, especially cheeses. This laid-back wine is very approachable, so it’s an easy choice to pour alongside a simple, fresh Margherita pizza.
Meat-Lover’s Pizza + Cabernet Sauvignon
This medium-bodied wine pairs well with chicken dishes, red meats, game, and mildly seasoned pastas – making it a match made in meat-lover’s heaven. The two make a rich and delicious duo.
