What Pairs Best with Super Bowl Sunday? Pizza.

Jan 31, 2014 11:45AM ● Published by Anonymous

The Super Bowl is a time to watch America’s great game, socialize with friends and — of course — eat your favorite tailgating treats.

When it comes to choosing the right game day munchies, the obvious go-to food is pizza.

Interestingly, Dominos and Pizza Hut will sell 29 million slices of pizza this Sunday, according to WalletHub.

Additionally, game viewers will consumer more than 50% of pizza on Super Bowl Sunday compared to any other Sunday. Overall, 18% of Americans will consume a slice of pie on Super Bowl Sunday, according to NPD Group

“While wings are the most “seasonal” product, increasing more than 3 times on Super Bowl Sunday than any other Sunday, only 6% of Americans will eat wings on that day,” says NPD’S Food Industry Expert Harry Balzer, “Pizza however, will be consumed by more of us, 18% of Americans … but “only” a 50% increase over a typical Sunday.”

In Southlake, there are multiple options when it comes to what type of pizza is available. Whether is a slice from Armend’s Restaurant, Mellow Mushroom or I Fratteli, the options — and toppings — are endless.

To add some spice to your Super Bowl Sunday, why not find that perfect beverage that compliments your pie? 

Coal Vines co-owner Paul Padro gave us the secret tips to pairing your pizza with that perfect glass of wine.

The truth of the matter is that there’s no wrong answer here. Everyone enjoys what wine they like with what food they consume. However, there are a few tricks to properly pairing wine and pizza. 

At Coal Vines, Padro and his partner designed a wine menu to try and satisfy all palettes and pocketbooks. 

“Wine should be pleasing to the individual by taste and not cost,” Padro says. “Drink what you like and don't worry so much about conception. Don't be afraid to try something new, just like in life you just might surprise yourself and that always goes down nicely.” 

Pizza and Wine Pairings Suggested by Coal Vines

Margarita Pizza: The combination of olive oil, fresh garlic and fresh basil marries well with a nice crisp, Pinot Grigio such as Maso Canali or a Whitehaven, Sauvignon Blanc.

Sausage & Roasted Pepper Bolognese: For those taste buds calling for something a little spicy, a nice Cabernet like Silver Palm, Hess or Silver Oak Napa is a good choice. 

Pepperoni Pizza: For those who enjoy the classics, indulge in a nice blend of Cabernet/Merlot such as Goosebump or Cain Concept.
