Pizza & Wine Pairing Guide

Pizza & Wine Pairing Guide

Four pizzas. Four wines. Simple, right?! Or is it? While it could seem like we're throwing pizza at a wall to see what sticks, there is a little method to the pairing madness.

First, our newest addition to the CAULIPOWER family, All Natural Uncured Pepperoni. Pepperoni is one of those strong flavors that soaks into every bite, and it needs a strong wine to wash it down. The meat is infused with a variety of spices, which is why it's hard to pinpoint an exact flavor for pepperoni – other than pepperoni-ish. That kind of intensity requires a Sangiovese or even Cabernet Franc for an earthy, rustic, savory pair.

Margherita is on the lighter side, with fragrant basil, juicy, bright tomatoes, and delicate mozzarella. Lighter pizza, lighter wine. If you're a brunch enthusiast, Margherita and rosé is the pair for you.

You can't get much more classic than a cheese pizza. Our Three Cheese pairs beautifully with the OG classico from Italy, Chianti. It's tart and herbaceous, just like our pizza sauce. A great pair for a casual night in.

And last, but not least, our award-winning Veggie Pizza, and it's partner in wine, Sauvignon Blanc. With a garden of flavor, you'll want a bouquet to match. Fruity flavors, like green apple and white peach, are a refreshing way to wash down those vegetables.

So, stock up on CAULIPOWER in the freezer aisle, then walk through the wine aisle with the confidence of a true aficionado, and have the loveliest, tastiest, healthiest National Wine Day ever.
