Deep Dish Pizza for a No-Fuss Yet Romantic Valentine’s Day

If you’re already planning on eating-in this Valentine’s Day, you likely want to keep things low-key. Ordering a pie from Chicago Deep Dish Pizza is about as easy-peasy as it gets and sure to rock your taste buds. But will pizza sate your date’s appetite for romance? Here’s how you can get away with dining on delivery on the biggest date night of the year in Calgary and indeed, across Canada.

Pair with the Perfect Wine

Wine is essential to elevating your meal from simple to sophisticated. A fruity red wine high in acidity and low in tannins is the ideal pairing for a deep dish pizza. A Barbera d’Asti or a lighter Chianti is ideal if you want to keep the cuisine Italian, a Beaujolais also pairs beautifully and an unoaked (or lightly oaked) California Zinfandel is yet another delectable option. These types of wines also have the advantage of being on the more affordable end of the wine price spectrum. 

Serve in Style
We dine with our eyes as much as our taste buds. This means presentation is vital when it comes to making your Valentine’s dinner an amorous event. Enhance your meal with a handful of well-chosen embellishments such as:

  • Glassware. Choose long-stemmed, clear Bordeaux glasses.
  • Plateware. Simple, white porcelain dishes are timeless.
  • Garnishes. Fresh basil or a bit of parsley enhances the visual appeal of your simple meal.
  • Linens. Choose a red and white checked table cloth or alternatively, go with a crisp white. Accompany with complementary linen napkins. 
  • Candles. Choose unscented in any colour you like. 
  • Flowers. Even a single bloom in a simple vase adds romance and elegance to your meal. 
  • Music. Whatever sets the mood for you and your sweetheart.

Serve with Sides
While our deep dish pizza makes a fine meal on its own, for Valentine’s Day consider embellishing with a few extras. In addition to ordering one of our pies for pickup or delivery, why not try our baked spaghetti or lasagna, buffalo wings or even a Caesar salad.

Something Special for Dessert
Don’t forget to pick up or make something exceptional for dessert. A cake from your favourite Calgary bakery or an artisanal gelato are both good picks but chocolate covered strawberries are the epitome of romance.
