Pizza

Pizza is rarely paired with wine but there are pairing options that make for an enjoyable match. Fresh whites, Rosé and young fruity red wines are good options.

Vegetarian or seafood pizza goes best with young and fresh white wines with moderate acidity and aromas. Unoaked light to medium-bodied Zweigelt or Blaufränkisch are safe options. The simpler the pizza topping, the more subtle the wine needs to be to avoid overpowering the aromas in the food. Four cheese pizza is the exception; here full-bodied or slightly oak-aged wines are recommendable.
