What wine to drink with a pizza?
Pizza is a great classic for evenings with friends. Usually accompanied by beers, it has become a must!
Whether it's seafood, Margarita, or even four cheeses, you should know that you can enjoy it with a good bottle of wine.
For many, wine pairings are an enigma. Choosing a wine to go with a pizza is not very complicated when you know a few simple rules .
Pizza: a universal dish
Present since Antiquity in the form of a pancake accompanied by toppings, pizza is a very popular recipe.
Made with bread dough, tomato sauce and melting cheese, pizza has been a classic for centuries.
Although some pizza recipes are classic and almost universal, many chefs let their creativity run free by adding unexpected ingredients. And while a lot of people associate pizza with beer, you should know that wine also goes very well with it.
You can accompany a pizza with red wine, white wine or even rosé. Here are some of the rules to follow when choosing a good wine to go with a good pizza.
pizza with red wine
The aromas of red fruits from Beaujolais or a Gaillac bring out the taste of the tomato sauce between bites. With a pizza, we prefer a light Gaillac to enhance the taste of the dish.
Red Côtes-du-Rhône wines with their aromas of spices make it possible to emphasize the taste of the tomato sauce. It's also a great choice to go with pizza, as it gives the cheese a boost.
When choosing a red wine to accompany your pizza, you must therefore give priority to a wine that is crunchy, fresh enough to reduce the fatty side of the cheese.
Red wines are perfect for simple classic pizzas and for those with a more complex topping.
Pizza with white wine
A light and fruity white wine, Sicilian or French, will go perfectly with all pizzas .
It is necessary to opt in priority for whites with the aromas of citrus fruits, with mineral notes to shout a balance with the fat of the cheeses (mozzarella, gorgonzola…).
A white wine from the Loire Valley is recommended for the pizzas.
Also, a fresh Sancerre with its mineral taste and aroma of citrus fruits and almonds is perfect.
When selecting a white wine to taste your pizza, keep in mind that it should be light, fruity, served chilled, with aromas of citrus fruits or even white fruits .
Pizza with rosé wine
Rosé wines , although unconventional, go very well with pizza if you know how to choose them.
You can opt for rosés provided you take a rosé as an aperitif such as a rosé from Côte-de-Provence .
We can also make more original weddings. Languedoc is a rosé with a more full-bodied taste than a simple aperitif rosé.
Where to find wines to go with pizza
Some people think that wine is a matter for connoisseurs, but the truth is quite different.
To find a good wine, you simply need a selection rich in quality. Oé offers you its selection of wines : no need to have 1000 references when you have the right ones!
You therefore have the choice of a varied and complete range to choose according to your budget the wines that will accompany your Italian specialty.
