Pizza and wine what a palatable sounding combination. I love the convenience of pizza; teamed up with a crisp salad and an appropriate wine choice you can sit down to have a wonderful meal together. With turkey season upon us and a never-ending series of meals based around it, having a pizza or two stashed away in the freezer to break the turkey boredom is very welcome!!! Your guests will certainly thank you for it and they offer so much in the way of choice.
Dr.Oetker have produced an excellent Pizza and Wine Guide so you can ensure your pizza teams well with your chosen glass of wine. If I am honest I am a little clueless when it comes to wine, I enjoy the occasional glass but have no idea what best compliments different foods, so this guide is exceptionally handy for me. I am a big fan of Ristorante pizza and prefer dining at home, when you have young children its tricky organising childcare so I would rather eat in the comfort of my own home.
Dr.Oetker realises the odd glass of wine is therapeutic after a tough day and their easy to follow and in-depth guide really enhances the pizza eating experience. It brings a new level of sophistication to dining at home with pizza. My personal favourite is the Pizza Mozzarella all that fresh cheese is delightful, the smell is very inviting and the taste delicious, so I was keen to see what wine they recommended I enjoy with that. The guide suggested Verdicchio Classico at £4.99 a bottle from Morrisons. You can see more information on their videos too, an example I have included below so you can see just how informative they are.
I like how the recommended wines are affordable. With the pizzas themselves having an MMRP of £2.99, it becomes an inexpensive way to entertain. I like socialising with my friends but my budget cannot stretch to eating out often, so Dr.Oetker have a great alternative that most people can comfortably afford.
The guide details why the chosen wine is well suited for that particular pizza and provides serving suggestions for it. I feel like I have had quite an education in wine and cannot wait to invite the girls over for a pizza and wine evening. Forget the cheese and crackers I would much prefer to sink my teeth into one of the many Ristorante pizza’s instead.
