Friday Night: Pizza Night!

pizza-night-copyFriday night is pizza night in our house!  It’s one of those parties that you can whip together fast – and everyone loves it!

Whether it’s friends stopping over for drinks after work, or the whole family wanting to make their own pizzas…..get creative, try some new combinations….I have a couple of ideas (and recipes) for you:

Ideas

  • Make life easy on yourself…buy store bought pizza dough.  Trader Joe’s offers fresh dough daily – regular and whole wheat.
  • Set up “make your own pizza” stations on your counter top – everyone can add their individual flair to their pizza!
  • If you are setting a table, get creative with your “Italian” theme – try using bread sticks as a centerpiece or (like the picture above) as place cards.

Recipes

  • Pizza Margharita

    • A wonderful classic that everyone loves!  Try this recipe from Mario Batali (via Martha Stewart).
  • Deep Dish Pizza

    • Update your classic deep dish with these new toppings – Pepperoni & Onion or Spinach & Artichokes…..YUM!  (Recipes via Martha Stewart)
  • West Coast Grilled Vegetable Pizza

    • Full of fresh veggies and goat cheese, it’s a great pizza to welcome Spring.  (Recipe via Martha Stewart)
