4 Delicious Sides That Go Well With Pizza, Brookhaven, New York

Whether it’s from an authentic Italian restaurant or a carry-out chain, when it comes to pizza, you can’t go wrong. Choosing the sides you serve with it, however? That’s another story. Don’t disappoint or upset your guests’ stomachs by choosing sides that are too rich or have flavors that don’t complement the sauce, cheese, and seasonings of the main course. Below are the top 4 side dishes that you should serve with this Italian classic.

Sides You Should Serve With Pizza

1. Garlic Bread

pizzaThis one is a given — hardly any Italian meal feels complete without garlic bread. Whether it’s in the form of knots or sticks, their garlic flavor and fluffy bread perfectly complement the rich cheese, tomato sauce, and seasonings on pizza. Plus, you can use them to scoop up all the extra sauce that oozes out of your slice.

2. Mozzarella Sticks

When served with pizzas that are light on cheese, garlic bread offers a tasty way to complement the flavor profile without overdoing it on heavy food. Since they’re small, you can eat plenty and still have room for other foods. 

3. Flavorful Salads

Spinach, arugula, chicken, or fruit-filled salads are the best dishes to serve alongside pizzas. Their leafy greens, crisp veggies, and light dressings add a healthy component to the meal, a benefit when you’re loading up on cheese and bread. Since they’re light, salads won’t fill you up and prevent you from enjoying plenty of pizza, either. 

4. French Fries

Are French fries ever the wrong side to choose? When served as a side with pizza, French fries can add another layer of flavor to your dinner. With the right seasonings — such as rosemary, thyme, or Cajun spices — they’re a tasty way to incorporate new flavors into the meal. Fries are inexpensive and versatile, and they’re a go-to for even the pickiest of eaters.
