It’s pizza night! A great way to spend an evening with friends or family is to share a pizza. But what should you drink with it? We’ve compiled a list of drinks that pair well with pizza.
Of course the first beverage on this list is beer. Pizza and beer are a classic combo and you can’t go wrong by pairing the two. It makes for a fun casual night that everyone can enjoy. What kind of beer goes best with pizza? That’s all up to you, pizza goes well with every well-known brand and even a mug full home-brewed beer. Personally, locally brewed craft beer is our favorite.
Yes, you can be fancy on pizza night. Wine drinkers get a bad reputation for being snobbish when it comes to pairing their wine with food, but the truth is anyone who enjoys a good bottle of wine usually always enjoys a good pizza pie. So what wine goes best with pizza? Well, that depends on your toppings. If you enjoy a plain cheese pizza, try a sweet white wine like a Riesling, it goes well with the acidity of the tomato sauce and the richness of the cheese. More of a meat lover? Try a fruity red like a Chianti that can stand up to savory sausage and pepperoni.
You don’t have to be a drinker to enjoy a good pizza pairing. Pizza and soda go together like peanut butter and jelly. Sure, nowadays we try to avoid sugary drinks like soda, but there are plenty of fancy carbonated drinks that are worth indulging in every once in a while. Try an organic cherry cola or a good old-fashioned root beer, great for kids and the young at heart alike.
There are plenty of drinks that pair well with pizza, so pick your favorite and enjoy your pizza night.
