In recent years, the streaming service Netflix has become a cultural phenomenon. What started out as a subscription service used for renting big blockbuster films to watch at home, has turned into an entire network with its own original movies and television series, documentaries, and more. Once you have become a Netflix subscriber, you can sign in and stream from anywhere — your phone, your tablet, your laptop or desktop computer, and your smart TV.
Other streaming services are available, and popular as well, but we think Netflix seems to be the most iconic of them all, and the one that most of the people who know have a subscription for…and one of the ways they, and we, enjoy that subscription is by having Netflix Nights.
We love a good Netflix night at home. There is no need to get dressed up, no need to get in your car and drive anywhere or call for an Uber or Lyft, and no need to spend a lot of money on dinner and drinks before, during, and/or after the movie. Instead, order pizza from your favorite local shop, pop open a bottle of Mr SYLTBAR Premium Prosecco and make sure to have another bottle chilling in your SYLTBAR ice bucket for later.
Here’s why you should invite Prosecco to your next Netflix and Pizza Night!
Which wines to pair with Pizza?
Although many people like to drink Prosecco with things like cheese and charcuterie, oysters and fresh seafood, it is also actually a really delicious pairing for pizza. Bet you wouldn’t have thought of that one, right? The light, crisp, refreshing bubbles of Prosecco help to cut through the heaviness from the dough and almost cleanse the palate between each slice.
You already know that Prosecco goes well with cured meats and cheeses, which are ingredients very frequently included on pizza. Whether you’re a traditional cheese and tomato sauce pizza lover, or prefer more artisan toppings like truffles and olives and a variety of different fresh vegetables…Prosecco will always be the best choice. Mrs SYLTBAR Sparkling Rosé would be a fantastic choice too! The effervesce of sparkling wine matched against the earthiness of the pizza dough is what makes this combination unbeatable.
Now, the easiest thing to do is order pizza delivery. No cooking, no dishes or mess to clean up… Just put the box on the coffee table in front of your television and eat! But at SYLTBAR, we do love to experiment in the kitchen and cook up our own fantastic meals to have at home. There is something about that first bite of a homemade pizza that just tastes better, especially when you have a glass of Mr alongside it.
If you are like us, and prefer to prepare your pizza yourself, here are a few recipe ideas from our favorite chef, Steffen Henssler. First and foremost, we suggest that you purchase premade dough or puff pastry — unless you are a pizza dough pro and happen to already have some made! Using a premade dough will drastically cut down on the time needed to make the pizza. The quicker you can get to chilling on the couch, eating, drinking ,and watching a movie on Netflix, the better!
