Chances are, you don’t need us to “sell you” on how wonderful pizza is. It speaks well enough for itself.
Then again, many of our patrons want to know what’s the best way to pair authentic NY-style pizza with our traditional pasta dishes. Those two go together like a hand and glove, assuming you know how to match the most appropriate toppings, seasonings, sauces, and so forth. While there’s no wrong way to approach this, check out this quick guide on how to do so, like a pro, with Russo’s.
Best Pizza & Pasta Combinations
Margherita Pizza & Spaghetti Carbonara - The white pizza goes well with this pasta selection because of its perfect synthesis of Prosciutto, red onions, and creamy Romano sauce. If, instead, you prefer a stronger contrast between items, consider mixing the Margherita pizza with a marinara-sauce pasta, like Jumbo Cheese Ravioli.
Doppio Pepperoni Pizza & Baked Ziti - This is a satiating and savory option for the hungriest meat lovers. Besides Doppio Pepperoni, we have other meat-topping pizzas, such as Italian Works or Mulberry. Alternatively, you might mix one of these with some of our rich, authentic, layered Lasagna.
Hawaiian Pizza & Fettuccine Alfredo - Hawaiian pizza features Canadian bacon and pineapple, which lend themselves towards a creamier sauce. You’ll find no better version than Russo's patented Pecorino Romano sauce, combined with a delicious slice of Hawaiian pizza.
Pizza Toscana & Truffle Mushroom Campanelle - Here’s the way to go if you seek to maximize your mushroom experience when you’re with us. By “Pizza Toscana,” we refer to our selections that feature healthy truffles, fresh arugula, Sicilian extra-virgin-olive-oil, and balsamic glaze. It’s a truly Mediterranean way to enjoy pizza and pasta.
This, of course, only scratches the surface of the many fun ways to mix pizza and pasta. Since we offer such an extensive dine-in menu, there are also several other ways to complement your pizza whenever you order online or visit Russo’s.
We Have Several Other Dishes to Mix w/ Pizza
Perhaps you’re not in the mood for pasta right now. Did you know there are several other flavorful foods you can pair with our savory selections?
These are just a few suggestions . . .
Italian Garlic Bread - wonderful with any marinara-based pizza (especially Brooklyn Square Nonna’s)
Liberty Wings - it’d be a shame to host a football party without wings and pizza; ours go great with just about any toppings or arrangement
Doppio Pepperoni Calzone - an obvious companion for our popular Doppio Pepperoni Pizza
