Tips For Throwing the Best Pizza Party

Know Approximately How Many People Are Coming

When throwing a casual pizza party the number of people who come can be somewhat up in the air. You may invite 20 people and five of those decide to bring their friends! If you have a rough estimate of how many people will be there, you can take that number and make sure you order enough pizza for everyone. A standard rule is to order enough so that everyone can get two slices. However, there will always be a few people who sneak in there and grab a third slice, so it never hurts to order one more pizza that you think you’ll need. And if you have leftovers, use these tips for reheating the pizza!

What Toppings?

Possibly one of the most important decisions is which toppings to order. The important thing here is variety and taking some time to make sure if there are any guests with dietary restrictions. Even though it may not be the most exciting kind of pizza for everyone, a safe choice is to order a few plain cheese pizzas. On the other extreme, you can order a few supreme pizzas with a mix of veggies and meat toppings. A good middle-of-the-road option is a pizza with either just pepperoni or just sausage – nearly everyone who eats meat would be happy with this. If there are vegetarians (and maybe even if there aren’t), getting a just veggie pizza is another safe choice. Dalia’s pizza also offers gluten-free and vegan pizzas!

Drinks

Guests will definitely be thirsty after eating all that pizza! Depending on the guests, you can really go wild with the drink options. If there are kids, have a few bottles of soda, juice, and plenty of water – can’t have them too hopped up on sugar! For the adults, they may want to dive into the soda as well, or you can have some varieties of beer. Read this blog for some tips on which types of beer goes best with certain toppings! Wine is always a great option as well, and you can get some tips on what wine to serve with your pizza here.

Side Dishes

It’s a party, right? So you can’t have just pizza without any appetizers or side dishes. There are so many great sides to choose from that go perfectly with pizza, but a few popular choices include wings, cheese sticks, carrots and celery, salads, and breadsticks. The more fruits and veggies the better, so consider having a plate of broccoli, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, strawberries, grapes, and watermelon.
