It’s All About Pizza & Wine

Wine with pizza is like beer with fish and chips… it’s just meant to be


Salad Pizza Wine Pairing

A new style of pizza that’s growing in popularity for its presumed ‘healthiness’ is definitely the Salad Pizza. Just imagine a salad on top of a thin pizza. Popular greens on these salads include spinach and arugula which are topped with tart vinaigrette. This asks for a wine with even more tartness and ‘green’ flavors such as Awaken Sauvignon Blanc, crisp and refreshing with notes of citrus grapefruit and tomato leaves.

A tangy Italian chopped salad on a crispy flatbread pizza with tomato and mozzarella, aka Chopped Salad Pizza. My favorite food this summer!

Pizzza, Wine and Salad

Summer perfection!


For the Chopped Salad:

  • Romaine lettuce
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Chickpeas
  • Salami
  • Cheese – feta, parmesan, or mozzarella are all nice
  • Pepperoncini
  • Olives
  • Parsley – or any other herbs you like
  • Italian dressing – see notes 


  • Pizza crust, such as Flatout Flatbread Crust
  • Tomato sauce
  • Mozzarella cheese


  1. Salad: Chop all your salad ingredients and toss with some dressing. I like when it has a little time to sit and marinate together in the dressing.
  2. Pizza: Bake your crust for about 5-7 minutes at 375 degrees  to get it crispy. If it needs more time, give it up to 10 minutes. Top with a light layer of sauce and cheese and return to the oven until the cheese is melted.
  3. Assembly: Top the pizza with the salad. Cut and serve. Yummy!


This recipe makes quite a bit of dressing, so you’ll probably have some leftover – which is fine by me because it goes well with just about everything.

For DELICIOUS homemade Italian dressing, blend these ingredients until smooth and creamy:

  • 3/4 cup olive oil, 2 tablespoons white vinegar, 2 tablespoons water, 1 tablespoon coarse salt (less if using table salt), 1 teaspoon dried basil, 1 teaspoon dried oregano, 1 clove garlic
