Domino’s plain pizza was well, sort of plain. It’s a bit on the doughy side, with cheese and herb flavors. With such light flavors in play, it’s not surprising that the bigger, more intense wines, like the Barbera, Lambrusco and Chardonnay, totally dominated the flavors of the pizza. Both the Chianti and the Pinot Noir turned thin and a bit too astringent with this pairing. This left the Pinot Grigio and the Zinfandel as the clear winners for this flight, both of which exhibited bright, fruity characters that complimented the pizza.
