We do enjoy entertaining at home, and sometimes it’s fun to have everyone get involved in the fixing.  Nothing works better for that than pizza.

pizza/foodYou never know what toppings folks will like, so it’s best to have an assortment ready.

piza/foodTalk about an opportunity to be creative!

crostini/appetierand tomato mozzarella  crostini?  Yum, it just doesn’t get better!

There you have it, a very fun way to spend an evening with friends!

  1. This has me singing, “When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that’s …”
    I still love those straw-wrapped wine bottles. Have three of them with candle drippings (stored somewhere).
    I like the idea of having everyone make their own pizza, yet slicing them up and sharing with the other guests. Hadn’t ever thought of that before.

  2. What a fun idea and yes I am old enough to remember when wax dripping bottles were the height of sophistication! You could even buy special candles and do your own if you were lucky enough to have those special wine bottles. Fun memories!

  3. Nothing is better than pizza on a beautiful table! A great idea…it just might be a pizza night at our house too..

  4. A great idea to let family and guests assemble their own. I’ve got the same dishes!)
