Happy National Cheese Pizza Day!

Growing up, pizza was life! Although, I will say that pepperoni was my favorite topping as a kid. As an adult, I prefer cheese, for frozen pizza, so that I can add whatever toppings I want. I don’t discriminate either. I love all styles of pizza, from NY to Chicago, to frozen, and everything in between. What is your favorite style of pizza?

I asked some folks about what drink, alcoholic or not, did they pair with their pizza. Their most popular responses were wine, beer, soda, and cocktails(negronis and aperol spritz were the most popular).

This cocktail was inspired by their responses. Enjoy!
