Are you looking for a fun way to throw a fun party for adults? Why not have a pizza party? Pizza parties aren’t just for children.
You can have a very grown-up pizza party that will please any sophisticated palate. Here are ideas:
Serve Pizza with Unique Sauces
Many pizza recipes almost always use a marinara or tomato-based sauce on the crust. For a more grown-up party, think about more unique, sophisticated sauces for your pizza.
Some good ideas include an olive oil-based sauce flavored with garlic or sun-dried tomato. You can also use a white cheese or Alfredo sauce.
This sauce is perfect for a pizza that is topped with spinach or kale. You may even want to have fun sauce options like buffalo or barbecue sauces.
Offer a Variety of Toppings
When you throw your grown-up pizza party, why not just let everyone choose their own toppings? This is a great way to get everyone involved and keeps the conversation flowing.
Make sure you offer a big variety of toppings in order for your guests to get creative. More sophisticated toppings include prosciutto, caramelized onions, spinach, grilled chicken, roasted garlic, and fresh mozzarella.
Once your guests have topped their pizzas, you can pop them in the oven or even the barbecue grill to cook.
Incorporated Elements of the Season
Another way to add interest to your grown-up pizza party is to include elements of the season. For instance, during the fall you can include a pizza recipe that includes ingredients like a pumpkin, butternut squash, or kale.
Summer pizza ingredients include any fresh vegetable like summer squash, zucchini, and raw tomatoes.
Don’t Forget the Wine
No grown-up pizza party is complete without some good wine. Pizza and white wine go really well together, so serve a good Pinot Grigio or chardonnay at your party.
You may also want to serve a Merlot or other red wine if your pizza is hearty and earthy. The best bet would be to have both red and white wines so everyone is pleased. Be sure to have non-alcoholic beverages on hand.
Pizza parties can be fun for anyone of any age. Be sure to decorate for your party with checkered tablecloths and candle luminaries on the tables. Adding these simple touches will really send your party over the top.
