Not at all difficult to find, more difficult to avoid. Try Frascati, Orvieto, Lugana - all of which are 100% Trebbiano.

The Trebbiano grape grows easily all over Europe - in France it's called Ugni Blanc - and is generally used for simple wines, most of which are sold in bulk at about €1 a litre from the local co-operative.

Remarkably, it is also one of the grapes used to produce genuine balsamic vinegar - that's the €800 per litre stuff, not the industrial imitation you get from Tesco. Even more remarkably, the other grape used is Lambrusco, as those just happen to be the two grapes that predominate around Modena.

On topic, I'm lucky to have wonderful pizza just a 7 minute walk from my home at €7 a pop. Or €8 if you want something fancy. Add €6 for a litre of rosso and the two of us are done for €20.
