What to Serve with Pizza: Side Dishes That Aren’t Just Salad

Today, we'll look at the best side dishes to pair with your pizza. If you're feeding a crowd, choose two or more sides so there's plenty to go around!



Hot Wings

Hot wings, fried chicken wings, and buffalo wings are all classic pizza sides. These sometimes messy chicken wings will sate the hunger of any carnivore if the pepperoni on the pizza isn't enough.

Jalapeño Poppers

Bacon, cheese, spicy peppers – what more could you want from pizza's favorite sidekick? You can purchase ready-made poppers, but the homemade version is so quick and easy. Give it a try!

French Fries

Crispy golden brown potato sticks are salty snacks that go with almost everything – including pizza. Whip some up using a deep fryer, air fryer, or conventional oven. If you would like more flavor and nutrition, opt for sweet potato fries with a cinnamon butter dipping sauce.

Tomato Soup

Tomato soup was made for dipping fresh bread, and pizza crusts make a great vehicle for rich and creamy tomato soup. Like pizza sauce, tomato soup has a complementary flavor profile. It can also tempt those who typically throw away the crusts!
