Having a gal over for dinner.
Going to make a cast iron skillet pizza.
I'm thinking of doing a side caprese salad. Will all that be too much tomato & cheese?
Also any ideas for a wine or cocktail to pair with the meal?
YOU FAGGOT! make a white pizza, she probably never seen one and will be impressed. buratta is another good option as most basic women would never know what it is. disregard the pine nut salad idiot most girls hate pine nuts. Or a nice fucking proscuitto and arugula pizza with burata ya dingus. and get some nice beer for a pizza and beer night like a chill fucking guy, wine and pizza is fucking fedora core shit. dont blow it. go to whole foods or any other NICE FUCKING MARKET and dont skimp on ingredients. fuck its not hard.
If you're going for a cast iron skillet pizza, pair it with a Caeser salad, maybe throwing things for an exciting mix by using kale and baby spinach instead of romaine.
A caprese will be too much more of the same. The caeser salad will compliment the pizza but also be distinct from it, while the undertones will reinforce the flavors of the meal.
No wines, this meal is too heavy. Or at least, not regular wines.
A light champagne would compliment things nicely, though if you want to go for broke (and are doing a home-made lemon-tanged caeser dressing), you might actually want to go bold and serve the meal with some mimosas.
Save the other half of the bottle of champagne for after the meal.
