Margherita Pizza

A traditional margherita pie obviously calls for an Italian beer, right? This pale lager works with a classic pizza pie because it’s more like a German pilsener, thanks to its light maltiness and just a hint of bitterness. A light pizza demands a light beer, similar in densities, says Kwiatkowski. After all, a light lager like a Peroni, or a pale lager like Lagunitas Pils or a Victory Prima Pils, with a cheese pizza is as about as American as the football game you’re watching.
