Celebrate National Pizza Week and Football Playoffs with New England Clam Pizza

What could be better than football playoff season? The answer is simple: football playoffs, a cold Boston Lager, AND National Pizza Week.

We worked with pizza expert Mark Bellow from www.pizzaschool.com to develop a pizza recipe that is perfect for rooting for our home team: New England Clam Pizza, made with Boston Lager infused pizza dough!

NE PIZZA

This pizza not only ties to our roots here in New England, but it pairs perfectly with Boston Lager. Boston Lager’s doughy notes from the malt complement the rich and creamy sweet notes from the mozzarella and the ricotta cheese and slightly sweet character from the clams. The pie’s slightly savory oregano flavor will emphasize the citrus characters of the beer’s Noble hops while the chili flakes finish this pairing with a little heat that is balanced by a complex and lingering finish.
