What to drink with the pizza?

If you are in a hurry

  • For a simple pizza like a Margherita or a Four Cheeses, opt for a white wine from the Loire (Sancerre) or Roussillon.
  • For more "meaty" pizzas such as a Regina or a Parma, a Beaujolais or sparkling wines rather rosé.

No more classic pizza-beer, we want red and white!

Forget the classic pizza-beer... Today pizza is a convivial dish that is often enjoyed with friends. But then what wine can you match with pizza?! It all depends on the "type" of pizza. For example, simple pizzas, mostly made with cheese, herbs and tomato like the Margherita, will go well with a white wine that will support and balance the cheese by its fruity, fresh and mineral side, without even fading in front of Italian cheeses a bit strong sometimes.
The pizzas being more meat-based as for it will marry better with red wines carried on the lightness, which will put forward the simple taste of a Regina for example, and will reveal the tomato. So the wine goes well with pizza!

But then what wine to choose?

For "simple" pizzas such as Margherita or the famous four cheeses, we will prefer a white wine like Sancerre or even a brut champagne or crémant sometimes! Rosé wines work just as well with pizza as long as they are fruity and well-balanced like some Bordeaux rosés. So you can go with Blaye rosé which is very fruity. Red wine can work as long as it is light and fruity like the Beaujolais. There is also a rosé sparkling wine that will do the trick, which goes well with pizza.

PIZZA, a simple dish looking for a wine for the perfect match.

Pizza has its origins in Antiquity, where it was presented in the form of a simple cake with a few toppings. Pizza as we know it today has its origins in Italy, in the North, in Naples to be precise. Today it is present in the four corners of the world in different forms and ways of preparation, it remains a convivial dish for which it would be tempting to say that wine doesn't pass, when it doesn't. Pizza says yes to wine!
