Let’s face it — everyone would choose a fun pizza party over a fancy dinner. However, you can go a little extra with yours instead of just ordering pizza. Here are a few ideas you might want to consider when planning the perfect evening. They’re super easy and affordable, too.

Pizza-Themed Décor

How cool would it be to welcome your guests with pizza place settings, like decorated plates and napkins? If you can’t find any at a nearby store, you can order them online.

You can also buy a few flower bouquets and greenery and put them in Italian tomato cans. All you have to do is wash and dry out the cans first and then insert the blooms. It looks super creative and is the perfect addition to any pizza gathering.

Let Pizza Be the Star

Obviously, any pizza-themed party should have pizza itself as the star of the show! You can opt for delivery, or if you want it to be even more special, you can do homemade pizza.

One tip is to add some of your favorite fresh toppings right before serving. Get some arugula, herbs, shaved Parmesan cheese, hot peppers, and everything else you love.

Play the Pizza Toss Game

What kind of party would it be if you didn’t include some fun games? We recommend trying out this pizza toss game. Pick up small paper plates in different colors to represent the toppings and a circular tablecloth, which will be the pizza.

Spread the cloth on the ground and give every guest a stack of plates in the assigned color. Each person has to stand a few feet from the cloth and toss as many plates onto the “pizza” as possible in 30 seconds. The person with the most plates on the cloth wins.

Make the Perfect Dessert

It’s not a party without dessert, and a light and sweet cheesecake would be perfect. The recipe is super easy, but you should make it the night before.

  1. Combine 1 and 1⁄2 cups of crumbled biscotti with 4 tbsp of melted butter and press the mixture into a springform pan.
  2. Then, beat 8 ounces of mascarpone cheese with 1⁄2 cup of sugar.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat 2 cups of heavy cream with 1 teaspoon of vanilla and 3 tbsp of sugar. Once the mixture gets foamy, fold it into the mascarpone mix and pour into the pan.
  4. Let the cheesecake chill overnight, and then top it with your favorite fruits and jam.
  5. While it’s best the next day, if you forget to prep in advance, make sure you chill it in the fridge for at least 15 minutes before slicing and serving.
