Don’t you just love entertaining in the fall? With the bounty of fall produce and cooler weather, it’s hard to resist. This Brussel Sprout and Prosciutto Pizza paired with Geyser Peak Winery is the perfect, go to combination for fall parties on the patio or by the fire pit!

This pizza is easily made with a prepared pizza crust because sometimes you just gotta cheat. I like to use the ones in the refrigerated section that you have to let rise for an hour or two on the counter. If you are feeling motivated by all means, make your own dough… but this is all about EASY entertaining.

Pizza is perfect for entertaining because they can easily be made special by adding seasonal ingredients. Just imagine all the fall possibilities: roasted acorn squash, butternut squash, arugula, broccoli rabe, fennel or even figs.

The possibilities are endless!

When I make pizzas like this Brussel Sprout and Prosciutto Pizza for entertaining I don’t like to use red sauce. This is “adult pizza.”

I topped this one with a light lemony vinaigrette before adding the toppings. It is simply made with olive oil, fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper.

It gives it a nice, fresh taste without the overpowering flavor of tomato sauce.

When I eat fresh and seasonally I love pairing my food with a light, crisp Sauvignon Blanc like this one from Geyser Peak Winery.

This wine from Sonoma County is a go-to for easy entertaining. I love their entire wine portfolio and pick it up often to have on hand for spur of the moment entertaining.

Geyser Peak wines are food friendly and approachable which makes them perfect for entertaining.

Geyser Peak has a strong history and connection to Sonoma County and they even have a tasting room in the heart of Healdsburg. They source many small parcels of top quality fruit and they optimize each and every one.

Then they combine grape varieties to get balance, harmony and complexity to create one final finished wine.

I promise your guests will love this Sauvignon Blanc and this Brussel Sprout and Prosciutto Pizza. Add a salad and sit by the fire for the perfect fall night.
