Mark our words, the third Friday of May will soon become your favorite holiday of the year. Why? You ask? Because it is Pizza Party Day!
It is an unofficial holiday that celebrates the delicious, doughy pie traditionally topped with tomato sauce, cheese, herbs, vegetables and meat and baked until cooked.
People Pleasing Dish
Thought to have originated in Italy, pizza today has become a popular dish served in restaurants and homes around the world. It is often considered by many as the perfect party dish – a single pie can feed a lot of people, it can be easily made at home or ordered from a restaurant, eating it does not require utensils or fancy dishware, and most importantly it is delicious even when consumed cold.
How to Celebrate?
- By hosting a pizza party, of course! Order in pies from your favorite pizza place or make your own. Start off by serving bite size pizzas as appetizers. Serve a variety of pizzas next – may we suggest a selection of cheese pizza, an Indian-inspired pizza made with a naan base topped with curried chicken, and a salad pizza topped with fresh vegetables and arugula? And of course, end the meal with a dessert pizza.
- Why not have your guests make their own pizzas? Provide the bases and ingredients and let them unleash their creativity on their pie. Who know, they may end up creating your new favorite pizza?
