"How amazing are the flavours in this pizza!
Made with a blend of mozzarella and edam cheese, the toppings include chicken, spinach and sweet corn which cover a subtle tomato base which is not too sweet. There is a lovely mild curry flavour that adds a spicy lift to it. To work well with the spicy curry flavour, you need a wine with a hint of sweetness which both of these wines have."

Zinfandel is a red grape, so White Zinfandel usually comes in a colour the Americans like to call ‘blush’ or Rosé. Californian Rosé is a sweeter style of wine, the slightly sweet aspect makes it good with spicy food as it works well with the spice without aggravating the heat.
