Pizza night presents a terrific opportunity to learn a bit about food and wine matching without dropping a lot of dough.
Get it? All the basics apply. Think weight, acidity, finesse, spicing, situation and price: all the things you encounter with any food and wine match. If you're into rustic mushroom and sausage, go for that gutsy and earthy red. If it’s a classic Margherita, pop a fizz, or lighter, chilled red. Arugula calls for steely, crisp whites, tomatoes love rosé, cream-bases crave textural creamy whites. Mix slices, glasses and have fun. Pizza is unpretentious and accessable and affordable, so we've chosen wines that are as well. Here are our Top 10 Pizza Wines for your pizza muching, eclipse-watching, summer-soaking end of August.
