Pizza and Wine Pairings: A Romantic Valentine’s Day Guide

February 13, 2024

Blog / Pizza and Wine Pairings: A Romantic Valentine’s Day Guide

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than with an evening filled with delicious pizza and fine wine? Whether you’re planning a romantic dinner for two or a casual night with friends, pairing the perfect wine with your favorite pizzas brings a fun detail to the night. Explore the art of pizza and wine pairing with some of Oggi’s most-loved pizzas.

A heart form in the dough.

1. Oggi’s Americana Pizza

Wine Pairing: Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot

For those craving a classic American-style pizza, Oggi’s Americana hits all the right notes. Featuring a cauliflower crust topped with premium tomato sauce, fire-roasted vegetables, vegan cheese, and Beyond Beef®️ crumbles, this pizza packs a punch. To complement the hearty flavors, we recommend pairing it with a bold and fruity red wine like a Cabernet Sauvignon or a Merlot. The wine’s tannins and acidity will cut through the richness of the toppings, creating a great balance.

2. Oggi’s Caprese Pizza

Wine Pairing: Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc

With its simple combination of tomatoes, basil and mozzarella cheese, Oggi’s Caprese is a celebration of authentic Italian flavors. This fresh pizza calls for a wine that enhances its light ingredients without overpowering them. A crisp and aromatic white wine such as a Pinot Grigio or a Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect choice. These wines offer vibrant acidity and citrus notes that complement the brightness of the tomatoes and basil, while their subtle fruitiness adds depth to the creamy mozzarella.

3. Oggi’s Quattro Formaggi Pizza

Wine Pairing: Chianti or Sangiovese

For those of us who love cheese, Oggi’s Quattro Formaggi is heaven-sent. It uses a rich blend of real mozzarella, asiago, Romano, and parmesan cheeses. To pair, opt for a medium-bodied red wine such as a Chianti or a Sangiovese. These Italian varieties offer ripe fruit flavors, earthy undertones, and a touch of spice that match beautifully with the richness of the cheeses.

4. Oggi’s Vegitaly Pizza

Wine Pairing: Pinot Noir or Rosé

For a vegetarian option bursting with flavor, look no further than Oggi’s Vegitaly Pizza. Topped with roasted veggies, tangy goat cheese, and mozzarella, this pizza offers a perfect blend of taste and texture. To complement the earthy notes of the vegetables and goat cheese, pair this pizza with a light-bodied red wine like Pinot Noir or a fruity rosé.

As you prepare to celebrate Valentine’s Day with loved ones, remember to “eat well today” by indulging in a night of pizza e vino. Whether you’re enjoying the bold flavors of the Americana Pizza or savoring the simplicity of the Caprese Pizza, there’s a wine to enhance every bite. Cheers to a romantic evening filled with good food and great company!
