We’ve all been there. It could be the middle of the week, or a weekend evening. Either way, you’re looking forward to a night in—date night. Better yet, pizza night.
One of our favourite ways to spend an evening is to settle down with a glass of wine, a movie and some delicious pizza. And with two exciting new flavours of Delissio Rustico pizza, along with a few simple, fresh ingredients, we made a delicious couch-side meal for two in no time at all, and with no cooking required.
So turn on the oven, fire up an artful romantic comedy and follow these tips for a sensational pizza night of your own!
Delissio Rustico Quattro Formaggi pizza is a treat for cheese lovers and anyone looking for a premium, stone baked thin crust pizza that offers something different. Available at Metro grocery stores, the pizzas feature a blend of mozzarella, emmental, parmesan and blue cheese.
To complement those flavours, we chopped some fresh basil and topped the pizza with it once it was out of the oven. We also made two quick and easy dipping sauces for the crusts: a classic Italian olive oil and balsamic vinegar dip, and a marinara made from a tomato puree (available in cans at the grocery store) and chopped basil, which we heated up in the microwave for a minute.
Delissio Rustico Greek pizza offers something truly different—tasty, fresh flavours transported from the Mediterranean right to the freezer of your local Metro grocery store.
We paired it with a crisp Greek salad: chopped tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers, tossed with brown olives and feta cheese, and drizzled with a bit of lemon juice and olive oil. It was so quick and easy, we were able to whip it all up in the time it took for the pizzas to cook.
One of the great things about pizza is that it pairs well with many varieties of white and red wines. Italian Chianti and Barbera are perfect, but why not mix things up with something Greek? We selected a full-bodied, rich wine from Santorini. And we couldn’t resist picking up a bit of baklava to nosh on afterward.
Delissio Rustico Quattro Formaggi and Greek pizzas, together with some fresh sides, made for an easy and fun meal, and a perfect date night in: less time in the kitchen and more time together—relaxing, watching a movie and sharing a laugh.
Try Delissio Rustico the next time you want to add a little stone baked thin crust goodness to your me-time. With authentic high-quality ingredients on a crisp sourdough crust, it’s the perfect pizza for #PizzaNight, and they just introduced two new flavours, Greek and Quattro Formaggi.
