UNESCO has spoken: Pizza is Italian.
In 2017 UNESCO added the Pizzamakers (Pizzaioli) of Napoli to the list:
Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
If you are in Italy, Beer is often the first choice for Pizza, but I suggest you test a local sparkling wine instead.
My favorite match for Pizza is chilled Lambrusco. The fresh acidity pairs so well with Cheese and Tomatoes.
Pizza and Prosecco is a gastronomic match made in heaven, and the carbonation helps my digestion.
Any Metodo Classico wines (Champagne) will match the acidic Pizza and cut through its Richness, and the lees of Metodo Classico and the Pizza crust share the same tasting notes.
For a Pizza with more Meat, a fruity Italian red wine is always a good choice.
Make it a habit to eat and drink local. Expand your skills to understand the passion that wine communicates. Explore the range of possibilities a grape can express through culture, terroir, and climate.

Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
