Pizza and Wine

Really interesting blog post about pairing wine with pizza over at Dr. Vino. Apparently Italians don't drink wine with pizza.

It says that Pizza and Beer is a much more common and sacred pairing, which is understandable, but I don't necessarily understand the aversion to matching a good wine with pizza. A lot of popular Italian foods (and other foods from around the world) contain a mixture of three basic ingredients, pasta/bread, cheese/dairy, tomato. This also happens to be one of my justifications for eating my mac 'n cheese with ketchup. But if you look at everything from nachos with salsa to spaghetti with parmesan cheese they all contain these ingredients.

Therefore, if you drink wine with your favorite Italian pasta dish, it shouldn't be that far of a stretch to drink wine with a pizza.
