If we could choose one foodstuff that goes extremely well with wine (one of our main interests here at the Vinturi office), it would probably be the pizza. It’s delicious, (kind of) nutritious, incredibly versatile, and best of all, we don’t have to wait very long for it to be ready to put into our hungry tums. Something that we’ve all been getting rather excited about in recent weeks is the competition being run by Pizza Express, to find the latest, most exciting new pizza recipe, as created by Joe/Joanna Public. It has been a great opportunity for those who love dough and cheese and tomatoes and whatever-else-you-may-like-on-top to flaunt their culinary creativity, and possibly get their special pizza featured on the main restaurant menu. Sounds damn good to us. Those chosen to be in the final range from a vegan pizza to a meal shaped to look just like the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and there really is something for everyone’s palate. Just pop along to their website to vote for your favourite.
If you’ve got an idea for a tasty snack that you think would go brilliantly with a nice glass of wine and a big comfy sofa, or would like comment on any pizza creation you’ve ever come across, please do get in touch, and one of the Vinturi team will be on hand to listen attentively (and possibly argue that pineapple, being a fruit, does not belong on a savoury base. End of story).
