An Italian red wine like a Chianti is a logical choice for what to drink, but if you're looking for something a little different and fun, pair this pizza with a dry Lambrusco.

Oh My! This is SO GOOD! I've tried LOTS of pizza recipes (my sister lived in Italy for years and gave me an authentic recipe) This by far is the BEST pizza recipe I've tried!! I used the Mad Hungry pizza dough recipe. I used the recipe and made 3 different types - plain cheese for my daughter, meat overload for my husband and margarita for me - they were all huge hits! Thanks Lucinda - you rock!!
