Which wine with pizza? Which pizza with wine?
For me, a pizza is just not a pizza without a glass of wine. The pizza complements the wine and the wine complements the pizza, especially if you have selected the right pairings.
Are you lucky enough to remember straw-covered Chianti bottles in inexpensive Italian restaurants?... If you look hard enough you may be able to locate straw-covered Chianti wine bottles, and I'm not talking about lamps. If you haven't tasted Chianti in a while try it with one of the dishes recommended below. Whether you're eating out or at home, don't be afraid to experiment with the toppings, and with the wine. Whether you select your wine or your pizza first, check our tables to get a great match that brings out the best in the pizza and the wine. There's nothing like the right wine and food marriage.The following table presents food and wine pairing information, sorted by type of pizza. When you click on any pizza a new page pops up telling you more about that pizza and providing additional wine suggestions.
