Gulf Shores Pizza Place Offers 3 Wine Pairing Recommendations October 12, 2017

Gulf Shores, Baldwin
Gulf Shores Pizza Place Offers 3 Wine Pairing Recommendations, Gulf Shores, Alabama

From pepperoni and mozzarella to fennel and duck confit, all sorts of foods are used as pizza ingredients — making it possible to truly customize the creation. According to the staff at Papa Rocco's, a pizza place based in Gulf Shores, AL, there are several types of wine that complement pizza flavors nicely. Below, the staff at this local restaurant shares three awesome pairings to try. 

Pizza Place Shares 3 Wine Pairings 

1. Robust, Fruity Reds 

The garlic, tomato, and oregano taste in marinara sauce pairs nicely with fruity red varieties. The robust flavors in red wine aren’t overshadowed by complex pizza flavors. The sweet notes of Barbera d'Asti, for example, complement the tangy bite of the tomato sauce, while the high acidity level helps balance the saltiness from the melted cheese. 

2. Light Whites 

Gulf-Shores-Alabama-pizza-placesDry white wines are noted for their light, subtle flavor profile. Pair these wines with vegetable toppings and white sauces on pizza. The oaky flavors in Zinfandel, for example, help elevate the earthy tastes in mushrooms, olive oil, green and red peppers, black olives, and onions. 

3. Dry Varieties 

Fans of Hawaiian pizza with pineapple toppings should try the tropical creation with a dry Riesling. The wine provides a nice balance that keeps the sweetness of the pie in check.
