Hosting a Pizza Party

I might be a little territorial when it comes to my kitchen but I do welcome company at my kitchen’s barstools while I prepare the appetizers, main entrees, side dishes and desserts during dinner parties. I love chit chatting and catching up with family and friends as I prepare the meal. Recently, I decided to open my kitchen (slightly) to my family and friends when I had them over for dinner. Instead of grilling or preparing a hearty dish on the chilly winter evening, I bought a bunch of pizza dough, toppings, cheeses and sauces. I prepared my baking dishes, turned the oven to 450 degrees, set out the ingredients, and invited my dinner guests to create their own pizzas.

Hosting a pizza party in your home is a simple dinner idea that will bring out smiles, laughter and creativity. Whether you’re hosting a party for kids or adults, all ages will find this dinner idea to be a fun, interactive, and hands-on experience that will create lasting memories.

    Yum! I love pizza… It's a regular staple on my menu each week. I never thought to turn it into a party idea, though. Love it :)
