Spring has officially sprung in Boston’s North End, and restaurant menus are reflecting that with light, fresh flavors. When you think about pizza, you might not automatically think about spring, but Quattro wants to change that! Check out these innovative and delicious pizza flavors you can try this spring to break away from the same old pepperoni routine.
Sun Dried Tomato and Arugula
Nothing says spring like fresh greens, which is what makes this pizza stand out from the rest. Sun dried tomatoes and arugula are paired with fresh mozzarella to create a flavor profile that’s sure to impress. This pizza pairs great with a rosé to even out the acidity of the sun-dried tomatoes without overwhelming the natural flavor palette. As an added bonus, you won’t have to feel bad about enjoying this pizza – if it has arugula, it’s basically a salad, right?!
Goat Cheese and Asparagus
Goat cheese is a rich and creamy replacement for traditional mozzarella on pizza. Pairing the goat cheese with asparagus that’s cooked to perfection and cut into bite-size pieces will create a pizza that’s sure to impress. This pizza has a light enough flavor that it pairs well with almost any beverage or other food choice, so there’s no reason not to give it a try!
White Cheese with Ramps
Ramps are a type of wild onion that has a garlic flavor that’s rich and delicious. Ramps can be substituted for scallions if need be and the flavor will be very similar. Both ramps and scallions flourish in the springtime, so there’s no better time to try this combo then right now! Using mozzarella and Parmigiano-Reggiano with fresh ramps will create a flavor profile that’s bold and memorable! Pair this with a lighter drink that has a bit of a kick to match the intensity of the pizza without overpowering it.
Swiss Chard and Bacon
Bacon and swiss chard are a match made in heaven. When you add fresh provolone or fontina to the mix, it just can’t get any better! Swiss chard is commonly used in springtime recipes and bacon is good anytime of year, so you really can’t go wrong with this pizza. Swiss chard and bacon pizza pairs best with a dry white wine to make the most of your spring-fresh meal.
