ST. CATHARINES, Ont. — Beer and pizza go hand in hand, so one Ontario restraurateur had an idea: Why not infuse beer into the pizza dough?

"I used beer instead of water in the dough and it came out spectacular," said Roberto Vergalito of Roberto's Pizza Passion in St. Catharines, where the treat made its debut with the opening of the restaurant Saturday.

Customers appeared to like it.

“(It) was very good. I didn't taste the beer, it mixed in well,” said Cathy Ahern, who tried the beer-infused buffalo chicken pizza.

The beer-pizza is not currently on the regular menu, but Vergalito hopes to add it through a ballot with his customers, who can vote for favourites they'd like to add.
