Best Beers to Pair with Pizza

Pizza and beer go together like peanut butter and jelly or peas in a pod. With so many styles of pizza from basic cheese to a wide gamut of toppings, it can be difficult to decide which beer to order depending on your pizza selection. Bogey’s Sports Pub provides a helpful guide for pairing various pizzas with their most compatible beers.

Cheese Pizza

Cheese pizza goes fantastic with Light or Wheat Ales. This crisp brew on the lighter side is a wonderful accompaniment since the hops in the beer cut through the fats in the cheese without overtaking the flavor of the pizza.

Pepperoni Pizza

Pepperoni rates as the most popular add-on to pizza time and time again. A Pale Ale beer supplies a malty pale ale flavor that enhances the tomato sauce without compromising the taste of the pepperoni. 

Mushroom and Spinach Pizza

A stout brew is an ideal beverage to order with mushroom and spinach pizza. Mixing the sweetness of the stout with the umami flavor of the mushrooms creates a heavenly blend for the taste buds. The stout brew brings depth to the earth-like flavor of mushrooms and spinach.  If you wish to subdue the pizza’s sweetness, adding onion or sausage as a further topping should do the trick.

Hawaiian Pizza

This pizza combines pineapple with Canadian bacon for a scrumptious treat. Fruit-flavored beer goes hand in hand with this tasty pizza as the hops in the brew balance the sweetness the pineapple provides while the beer’s fruit infusion complements the Canadian bacon.

Supreme Pizza

Supreme pizza provides substantial yumminess as it is chock full of toppings such as sausage, pepperoni, peppers, mushrooms, olives, and onions. The powerful bitterness of an India Pale Ale (IPA) counteracts the saltiness of the meats, yet this beer doesn’t conceal the flavors of the other toppings.

Veggie Pizza

No better way to eat your veggies than when they are on top of pizza! Whether you request bell peppers, olives, onions, spinach, or any other combination of your favorite vegetables, your pizza is bound to be terrific. Lager is less bitter than its peers so it doesn’t overtake the individual flavors of the veggies. This beer also helps to cut through the salt in the cheese for a mouth-watering experience.
