From full-bodied reds to invigorating whites, the versatility of pinsa curates the possibilities of a perfect pairing for each and every topping profile. Let’s explore how to elevate your meal with a list of some of the best wines to pair with pinsa. 

Meat and Mozzarella 

For any meat lover’s pinsa preference, a medium to full-bodied red elevates the savory satisfaction in every bite. The bold taste profiles of these wines perfectly accompany the spices of sausage and pepperoni:

  • Chianti
    • Fairly acidic and herbal
  • Cabernet Sauvignon
    • Dry and darkly fruity
  • Zinfandel
    • Medium-bodied and jammy

From fresh mozzarella on a classic margherita, to shredded mozzarella on an iconic cheese pinsa, this irresistible combo makes room for a satisfying sip to pair with. When sticking to the simplicity of mozzarella, you can’t go wrong with a light-bodied white wine:

  • Pinot Grigio
