Pizza Sauce and Wine

Hi Polly,

I just found several recipes for pizza sauce that use wine as an
ingredient.  Most said "dry red" - not very helpful.  One calls for
burgundy.  And then there were a lot that called for white wine.  I
would go for the burgundy myself.

Kim is very funny.  Look, Kim.  This is the Swamp.  There is no wine
retailer or expert; only a package store operated by two tiny Asian women
who speak no English. The only adult beverage authorities around here are
moonshiners and they have a 'don't ask, don't tell' policy.  Polly

Okay, it is not yet 6AM here and I am looking up "dry red wine for
cooking"in google. Hmm, is it because of Polly's plea, of my needs for
sanity at work. I'll leave that to your imagination.

Here is a link I found, and there seems to be some good infomation

My apologies.  Even here in almost cow country we have several places
that pretend to be expert.  I'll check with my 'red' friends and
family and see what they have to say and let you know.  What I will
tell you is that most of the red folks I know prefer Merlot but
couldn't tell you if that's 'dry' or sweet.  Stay tuned.

Re: Pizza Sauce and Wine
Merlot is dry, and one of my favorites!  If I'm cooking a roast or something
in the crockpot, I always throw in a little red wine for flavor.  If you
have a Trader Joe's that sells wine near you, they have a great one (their
own Charles Shaw brand) for just over $3 a bottle....no kidding.  They also
have several other reds and three or four whites for the same price.  For
us, it's worth a trip to a neighboring state (NJ....Kim!!) to buy a mixed
case.

Rita is right.  An inexpensive burgandy is good or as I said before Chianti
if you can find it.  Either way it sounds yummy.

Per my 'red' local experts the vote is cabernet sauvignon.  And
whoever mentioned the $7-10 range in the 'holiday saga' thread is
right.  Nothing too expensive.  Doesn't need to be.  At that price you
know it will be drinkable as well for anyone who may want a sip or two
with the pizza.
