Pizza is one of the most popular foods in America. Children love it and adults do too. It can come as a standard crust with tomato sauce topped with cheese to the more adventurous flavors such as barbecued chicken or a fruity dessert pizza. Consider hosting a Pizza Party birthday party for your next event and you are sure to have a hit.
A pizza party can completely focus on pizza or you can just serve it as the main meal. It would be much more fun to have a party completely devoted to pizza though.
Pin the pepperoni (or topping of your choice) on the pizza would be a fun game and one that you could easily make from construction paper. Using pieces of felt you could cut beige slices of crust, red tomato sauce, orange pieces of cheese, and other toppings to use for a craft. Your party guests could either glue the pieces together or allow the felt to stick together on its own for a fun item they can reuse over and over again.
You can always order pizza from a local restaurant or you can allow your guests to make their own. Have the dough prepared and set out a variety of toppings. Let them top their own pizza and see what kind of combinations they can come up with. It may be a good idea to have extra dough or to prepare plain cheese pizzas in case it doesn’t live up to their culinary expectations. If you are not up for making pizza dough from scratch you can often find prepared dough in the freezer section of your grocery store. Bagels and English muffins can also make a great pizza crust in a pinch.
End the party with a traditional birthday cake or a dessert pizza. You can use a cookie crust and top with frosting and candy or use more traditional dough with a pie filling topping. The party favors for this pizza party can include a recipe so the party guests can make their own pizza at home and coupons to your local pizzeria. Have a great Pizza birthday party!
