Odd Pair: Heart-Shaped Cheese Pizza & Argiolas Costamolino

While it is a fact that shaping the pizza like a heart will not alter its taste one bit, it certainly does make it cheesier. Puns aside, I have a dreadfully wonderful tradition of ordering cheap, heart-shaped pizza on Valentine's Day.

This year, I wanted to find a wine that would really pair well with it, instead of my usual routine of picking up a bottle in the Kroger bargain bin and hoping for the best. That is where the 2008 Argiolas Costamolino comes in. This wine is a lovely, lesser-known white varietal that provides a refreshing fruitiness and zesty acidity that complements the rich, creaminess of the cheese pizza.

It's an immensely drinkable wine that is perfect for helping you suck down the doughy heart-shaped crust. And with the pizza and the wine each coming in at just about $10, you can have a memorably fun (but still tasty) meal for less than $20.
