The Perfect Pizza & Pint Pairing

Some of the best comfort food can be found in the form of an ice cold pint of beer paired with a steaming hot pizza straight from the oven. At Li’l Rizzo’s we know how important comfort food is - which is why we provide it for you on a regular basis! Tuesday, October 9th is Beer & Pizza Day. If you can’t join us next week to celebrate, why not come this weekend? We’ve got amazingly delicious pizzas on the menu, and the perfect pint to pair with them. Here are a few Lake of the Ozarks pizza and beer pairings to get your weekend started right!

Rizzo’s Margherita & Pale Ale

This pizza boasts of brushed olive oil crust, fresh mozzarella, dollops of ricotta, fresh tomato and basil sprinkled with grated parmesan. Pale ale’s go great with the pizza’s toasty crust and also can balance out the acidity of the tomatoes. This light beer will no down out the subtle flavor of the mozzarella either. Instead, it pushes it to the forefront! If you're hungry for this combination - stop by our Outlet Mall location.

Macho Meat & Blue Moon Belgian White

This flavorful pizza has red sauce, pepperoni, sausage, hamburger, bacon & Canadian bacon, with Provel and mozzarella cheeses. You’ll want to pair this type of pizza with something tart and refreshing with just a bit of spice to cut through the richness of the meat and cheese. Belgian beers are a natural choice, especially Blue Moon Belgian White.

Hawaiian & Goose Island IPA

Love it or not, “pineapple pizza” is a huge hit! Flavorful red sauce, Provel and mozzarella cheeses, pineapple, Canadian bacon, and green bell peppers make for a flavorful and delicious pizza. If you need a good beer pairing, Goose IPA can be perfect. The hops pair nicely with the pineapple, while the bit of bitterness cuts through the saltiness in the ham. Aloha!

Buffalo Chicken & Amber Lagers

This is a classic for an Italian spin on a game night favorite. The brushed olive oil crust is topped with Provel cheese, roasted garlic chicken, bacon and red onion. It’s then drizzled with our original wing sauce for an extra pop of flavor. Amber beer’s like Leinenkugals Oktoberfest can be a fantastic pairing. It has the right amount of malt and the slight fruity notes in the yeast stand up against the ragin’ buffalo sauce!

Beer & Pizza at the Lake of the Ozarks

We have two convenient locations for you and your crew to party at. Each location may have varying beer selections, but the one thing we can tell you is that there is always a good beer on tap for your pizza. Come on out this weekend and check out our menu - and don’t be afraid to try your own pairing. We’d love to hear what you come up with! Don’t forget that we have All Day Happy Hour EVERY SUNDAY! We’ve got drink specials and 1/2 price apps that you can enjoy all day long. Come celebrate beer and pizza day with us!
