Derek and Julie's tips for throwing a stellar pizza party

  • Prep as much as possible before the party, including side dishes, pizza toppings, and the sauce and dough. (Jensen recommends making dough that requires a 24-hour rise time at a low temp.)
  • Enlist helpers beforehand: kids who can clear plates or guests who might be able to stop by early to set up furniture.
  • Wear comfortable clothes for the party.
  • Start the evening with a glass of prosecco for each guest.
  • Offer more types of toppings than you would normally want.
  • Place prepped toppings in little bowls near the oven to spark appetites and conversation about the food.
  • Always offer a dessert. Gulla suggests cutting cookies, brownies and lemon bars into bite-size pieces for a relaxed sweets course.
  • Above all, have fun!
