How To Host The Most Epic Pizza Party. Less than 1 hour of prep and you've got yourself a sensational spread that will excite everyone!

Group text 12:13pm on Tuesday, June 20th:

Me: Guys, tomorrow I’m shooting an epic pizza party on the patio for DeLallo. BYOB. I’ll provide everything pizza related and everyone can make their own custom pizzas!
Friend 1: Are you asking us to come?!
Friend 2: I can come!
Friend 3: Otay!

And that was the beginning of the classiest, most epic pizza party Detroit has ever seen.

How To Host The Most Epic Pizza Party

For those of you who don’t know, I’ve been working with DeLallo for a little over a year now. And in literally every email exchange with them, I make it known how many times since our last correspondence I’ve made pizza with their Pizza Dough Kit.

You see, Alex and I love homemade pizza. We have competitions to see who can make the best pizza, and we judge by eating every. last. bite.

But making homemade pizza dough can be a challenge- you need the right kind of flour, to have yeast on hand, and to knead it forever and ever in hopes that it will turn out half as good as pizza parlor dough.

The result was stellar: one bowl, no measuring, and a quick mix by hand. Let it rise for an hour et voilà. Best homemade pizza ever.

So since I’ve been obsessed with this dough kit for a while now, I figured the best way to share it with you all was to host an epic pizza party.

My goal was to get as many pair-able toppings as possible, so that my guests could enjoy a variety of pizzas. Luckily, DeLallo has a huge variety of Italian food products, so I loaded up my online cart with fresh provolone, mozzarella, pizza sauce, pesto, peppers, pepperoni, and more.

Sauces/ Canned Toppings:
Olive oil
Balsamic glaze
Pesto
Calabrian Chili Peppers
Roasted Red Peppers

Cheese:
Provolone
Mozzarella
Bucatini
Pecorino Romano

Fresh Toppings:
Arugula
Figs
Pepperoni
Basil
Onions

Grouping things this way made it easy for my guests to pick and choose to make their pizzas unique. They could make a white pizza with olive oil, a red pizza with pizza sauce, or a green pizza with pesto. They had tons of cheeses to choose from. And they could top their pizzas with fresh produce, pepperoni, or herbs.

In terms of preparations, I used three pizza dough kits, which made us nine 12-inch pizzas. I rolled them out myself onto metal pizza pans right before my guests arrived so that all they had to do was add their toppings. The last thing you want with a make-your-own party is for your guests to feel put to work. So I did as much as I could ahead of time. Which still wasn’t much– I mean, I rolled out some dough and put everything into bowls. In fact, including setting the table, prep took me less than an hour.

The goal of summer entertaining, in my opinion, is to have delicious, stress-free meals that satisfy. This was exactly that, and everyone was so pleased with the result.

Looks like a beautiful time! Building a pizza stove in my back yard WAS on my to-do list for this summer, but I think it is gonna have to wait a year. I do love making my own pizza dough, but always open to trying stuff. 😉

I love this idea!!! Can you tell me what size pizza pans you used and where to purchase them? I only have 2 huge pans and would love to be able to make smaller – individual pies. Also, how many can you bake at one time and how long are they in the oven? Thank you

Hi Kristine! I used 10-inch pie pans and actually borrowed them from my friends who own a pizza shop- HA! I would check on Amazon for similar ones. I baked up to 4 in the oven, for about 10 minutes on the highest heat setting.
