What’s not to love about a dinner party filled with food and wine? Your friends will love the idea of themed dinner wine parties, and chances are, everyone will get to experience some new food-and-wine pairings!
Homemade pizza dinner party
Everyone loves pizza. And guess what? Pizza loves wine, too. Dress up your homemade pizza party with wine and salad. Or better yet, add those greens right onto the pizza! Making homemade pizza is easy, and you can use different types of crusts, including naan bread. Have guests bring ingredients for homemade pizza and a bottle of wine to reduce the work for you.
Try this BLT naan pizza recipe with bacon, arugula and tomato. This pizza takes all of the elements of a classic BLT sandwich and piles them on top of whole-wheat, store-bought naan bread.
The following pizza recipes are also extremely wine friendly:
- Mediterranean pizza
- Barbecue chicken pizza with crispy shallots
- Thai chicken naan pizza recipe with peanut sauce, red pepper and carrots
Rachel's suggested wine pairing
Italian wine pairs beautifully with pizza. Try sangiovese or nero d’Avola, both of which are wonderful to pair with pizza. Other great red wines to pair with pizza are tempranillo and zinfandel (especially the primitivo variety), especially for a BBQ-sauce pizza!
