5 Top Ips for Pizza Parties

Is there a food more suited to a party than pizza?

Whether it’s a birthday party, outdoor summer get-together or even a work bash, pizza is the ultimate sharing food that everybody loves.

It can accommodate most if not all dietary requirements and can be adapted to meet both simple and more sophisticated tastes!

If you’re planning a party and are looking to provide the ultimate in pizza heaven for your guests, then here are our 5 top tips to make your party one to remember for you and your guests.

  1. Decide on the best way to cook your pizzas. You’ll likely be either using an outdoor pizza oven or your kitchen oven. If you’re using an outdoor oven, you can use either our part-baked base or a pizza dough ball. A dough ball will give you the best results, but it’ll take more time and effort to prepare, which can be a problem when catering for larger groups of people. Our Pre-stretched, part-baked bases are designed to still give a great result but are much easier to prepare as no proving time or rolling out is needed. They can simply be topped with sauce, cheese and toppings and baked for a few minutes. If you’re catering for lots of people this could be the best option. If you’re using a domestic oven, we’d always recommend the part-baked bases as fresh dough doesn’t generally cook well in a domestic oven.
  2. Ensure you’ve thought about different dietary requirements. The main ones will be vegetarian and vegan options. All our dough products and bases are vegan friendly, so if you have vegans coming you can buy some vegan friendly cheese and serve some great dairy free pizzas using different seasonal vegetables. Vegetarian pizzas have limitless possibilities, with many different types of cheeses, vegetables and even eggs all great options. When it comes to feeding carnivorous guests, the possibilities are even bigger. Meatballs, steak, chicken, pepperoni, Parma ham and virtually anything else you can think of will all work great on a pizza. If you’ve got gluten intolerant or ceoliac guests then we have a fantastic GF dough ball available to buy on our website, so we’ve got you covered whatever your guests requirements.
  3. Let your guests get involved. People love to be involved in making their own food, and particularly children. Let them top their own pizzas. Another idea is to have a competition for who can bring the most unusual ingredients to try on their pizza and see what turns up on the day!
  4. Have a table with plenty of things on that people can put onto their pizza after cooking. This will help people get involved and also create some different combinations. Some ideas include pesto, olive tapenade, Parma ham (much better put on after cooking), fresh Basil, chilli oil, extra virgin olive oil, ranch sauce, balsamic dressing.
  5. Experiment! Pizza is so versatile and you can produce some really interesting and unusual flavour combinations with a little thought. Remember the number one rule, which is there are no rules! Pizza isn’t just a savoury thing either, for a finishing treat to your party, why not try a few dessert pizzas. Try using Nutella, strawberries, fresh mint and marshmallows. Your guests will love you for giving them something delicious and unique.

Hopefully these 5 tips will help you plan the ultimate pizza party that will help you give your guests an experience they won’t forget in a hurry!
