Pizza Party!!!


Okay well not a raging, crazy party- instead a small gathering of two couples. Last night was our first meet-up with a pre-cana couple from our church, and we really couldn't have been matched more perfectly. We are all foodies, love outdoor adventures, DIY weddings, and we were just generally on the same page.

Our guests offered to bring appetizers, which were amazing! They said they just threw them together quickly so I'm very interested in to see how great it is when they are trying! Don't they look yummy??

We had decided before our meeting up that we wanted to keep things informal and comfortable for our guests, so we decided to decided to go with make your own pizza night. Make your own allows creativity and everyone loves what they are eating.

Topping Choices:
-Crumbled sausage
-Green Peppers
-Brussel Sprouts
-Banana Peppers
-Kalamata Olives
-Shredded Mozzarella
-Crushed tomato sauce

We all got our own dough and set to work designing pizzas tailored to our own tastes. The really good thing about this is that you can divide your pizza into multiple combinations that way its like two or three pizzas in one.

While they baked we all chatted, and a little while later out of the oven came some amazing creations.

We served the pizzas along side a simple mixed green salad with my new Garlic Gold Balsamic Vinaigrettes (more on these later!) We all enjoyed our own creations even though we couldn't even finish them all, so they even got to take the rest to go!

Dessert was simple, but yummy! Treasure Cookies! These cookies are a no fail, especially when your guests come across the peanut butter cup snugly hid in the middle. At the end of the night we sent them off with some homemade peanut butter and more cookies for their enjoyment!

From the toppings above, what would you put on your pizza? Anything I left out that you'd like to add to your pizza?


  1. How fun and what a great idea! :) On my pizza I would have mushrooms, green peppers, spinach, brussels sprouts, olives and crushed tomato sauce! :)

    And those cookies are to die for. My goodness! Jealous!

  2. Lady - what a great selection of toppings! I know we go the DIY pizza route when we want to enjoy some laid-back time with friends as well.

    Delicious, personalized, comfortable.

  3. Mmmmmmm! Makin me hungry !! :)
