I don't think calling a wine a 'pizza wine' is a sign of disrespect.

Heck, just in the past few months I've had a '98 Viader and a '99 Monbousquet with pizza (we eat pizza at least once a week).

The Marietta, to me, typified a simple, good quality, well-priced red wine - ideal for a light meal (BBQ, pasta with red sauce, pizza, etc.) preferably on a weeknight (hence the low price tag).

I wouldn't drink this with a beautiful filet topped with blue cheese & butter - but that's just me...
a gentle reminder: let's not forget that pizza, like any other food, can be gourmet and exceptional. pizza can also be awful just like fast food. so saying a wine is a great pizza wine does not suggest the wine is a good fast food (awful) wine or that the wine is of lesser quality. at least in my book
