The Ultimate “Grown Up” Pizza Party
Does anyone remember how much they used to look forward to pizza parties? I would give anything to have enough time where I can gather with all of my friends just to eat a great slice of pizza, and I mean real pizza. I have decided that the days of pizza parties should no longer be stuck in the past. I’m encouraging everyone and anyone to grab your best pals and throw a “grown up pizza party” with gourmet pizzas fit for a hard-working adult.
Serving - Allow your fine eats to stand out by placing them on a surface that wows. Pizza Boards made of hardwood are the perfect tabletop accessory for prep and serving. With a wood pizza board made from oak or beech, you not only have a great serving piece but also an impromptu cutting board.
Ambience - Light some little candles for ambience and add a small chalkboard sign to tell guests which pizzas are on the menu for the night.
Four pizza recipes that I am going to try at my next pizza party were ones I found while surfing the web. Mixed in with some classics, I wanted to do something a little more gourmet and adventurous, after all, we are adults.
Peach and Burrata Pizza with Honey Balsamic
Roasted Tomato, Goat Cheese and Pesto Pizza
Prosciutto, Fig and Arugula Pizza
A party isn’t complete without wine pairings. Pair the prosciutto pizza with a nice buttery chardonnay. Add a bubbly twist by pairing the roasted tomato and goat cheese pizza with a nice glass of Prosecco. Classic Margherita pizzas can be mixed with light red wines or a dry Rosé. Last but certainly not least, enjoy the peach and burrata pizza with a bottle of Pinot Noir and let the meal be savored even more.
