I was asked by DiGiorno® to come up with a fun way to throw a pizza party using their new DESIGN A PIZZA kit which has all the ingredients you need to bake your masterpiece.

I thought it would be fun to throw a party where the main activity was to let my friends create their own pizzas. I love activities at parties, especially if they involve food. I think it creates a playful vibe, easy conversation and lots of laughter.

I printed out this awesome set of pizza party printables from our site, with every topping label imaginable, plus a whole host of other decorative goodies. You can download the whole free pizza party printables collection here.

The  DESIGN A PIZZA kits come in three varieties:

  • Pepperoni and Sausage with Peppers & Onions
  • Chicken, Green Peppers & Red Onions with Pepperoni
  • Spinach, Tomato & Red Onion with Pepperoni
For our party I used the first two.

I held the party on my back patio. I covered my big table in white butcher block paper to make it feel like a work space.

I put the two frozen pizzas on upside down disposable cookie trays. Then I put out all the toppings in little glass bowls with their corresponding tented labels. I printed out some of the other decorations, and of course, didn't forget the beer and wine.

Voilà, a beach ball pizza and a... sort of abstract pizza with lots of meat and very few veggies. :)

And here we all are enjoying our pizzas. They were super cheesy with a thick crunchy crust, and  the toppings added a nice mix of salty, smoky, crisp, and fresh flavors. Plus, I think the fact that we created them ourselves made them extra delicious.
