Make a batch of jello shots (strawberry, cherry or whatever floats your boat)with vodka or tequila of course. Crumble or slightly chop a couple of shots and place in a glass. Pour champagne or ginger ale in glass and enjoy. For a variation add to a screw driver or tequila sunrise, the possibilities are endless.
Cant say it goes with pizza but it goes with the mood of the fire burning.

As for with pizza goes my personal choice has always been Root Beer.
Great post! I will use this the next time we have a pizza party as the "appetizer" drinks...I have to say my opinion on what to drin with pizza really depends on some things...I think it has to be a fermented alcoholic beverage though...I think...stays with the fermentation for the dough etc...haven't had mead with it yet...beer or wine...definitely are looking for a more gentle pursuit of drunkeness

While I completely agree with your choices and opinions, having lived all over the world for over 20 years, I found that my opinions are not those always shared by others. To each his own. Pizza and beer is a classic wherever you go. Sangria is an incredible drink on a hot hot summer evening. I say enjoy what makes you happy. You'll be dead before you know it!
Everyone makes mistakes. The trick is to make mistakes when nobody is looking.

I personally enjoy Chianti Classico with pizza but you could equally well drink something like a Barbera, a Valpolicella or a Rosso di Montalcino or even a modern Italian red from southern Italy or Sicily.

I'd say if I'm going with a wine, I'll probably crack a bottle of Barbera d'Asti open for pizza (Vietti is my current favorite). If I'm going for beer, yeah, a Peroni would be good on a hot day, otherwise I'd open up a Fat Tire or Lagunitas IPA. And I'd probably go with beer 80 % of the time.

A citrus fruit bowl would be fine with me while eating pizzas. Or maybe a diet coke.
