Recipe Thursdays: Roasted Vegetable and Ricotta Pizza with Ollieux-Romanis' “Lo petit Fantet d’Hippolyte”

Kid-friendly can also be wine-friendly. Imagine eating a delicious, healthy dinner that both you and the kids love, and to top it off, the adults get to enjoy a delicious wine that pairs perfectly with the meal. What dish will make everyone happy? Pizza, of course. To up the nutritional value, make it a vegetarian pie with caramelized roasted vegetables and creamy ricotta and mozzarella cheese, like this sophisticated beauty from Cooking Light.

Just because it’s a kid-friendly meal, doesn’t mean you can’t pair it with an amazing wine, such as Ollieux-Romanis' “Lo petit Fantet d’Hippolyte.” This blend of Carignan, Grenache and Syrah is light and fruity, making it great for casual family dinners. The best part is that the bottle itself is an interesting conversation piece, since the winemaker’s young son, Hippolyte, designed the label. The name of the wine, “Lo petit Fantet d’Hippolyte,” translates from Occitan as ‘the little wine that is the little child of the little child Hippolyte.'
