I make my friends work for dinner
This weekend we had over a few friends (the ones who always have us over, but we haven’t invited them over in ages – we love you guys!) Not because I am totally lazy (ahem), but because thought it would be fun, we had a pizza bar for everyone to make their own pizzas.
While I would love to say my great culinary idea was the star of the show, it was really Finley and Owen. Could they be any cuter? (Finley loves sitting in the doll stroller!)
And because I totally forgot to take a picture before everyone got here, here is a picture of the toppings after about 3-4 pizzas were made.
I had four sauces: traditional pizza sauce, alfredo, pesto and garlic olive oil.
I had four cheeses: mozzarella, feta, parmesan and fresh mozzarella.
Other toppings: pepperoni, canadian bacon, mushrooms, olives, sundried tomatoes, fresh tomatoes (not pictured), and two different kind of peppers.
Each couple got their own crust (picked up for $3 each from Papa Murphy’s. Score – and a great tip for anyone hosting their own pizza party!)
So here are some of the creations in before and after form (and they really showcase my lovely photo taking skills):
This was my sister and brother-in-law’s pizza. Can you tell he worked at Mazzio’s at one time?
Somehow I didn’t get a picture of this one once it came out of the oven…
This is our pizza. Mine is pretty much white. I love alfredo sauce as the base of my pizza, but really cannot stand fettucine alfredo. I also put every single cheese topping I had on this puppy, along with a few sundried tomatoes. It was really good.
And for dessert I picked up some cupcakes from Smallcakes/Freshberry. They are all really good and moist. I am especially fond of birthday cake (sprinkle) cupcake. Love them!
My only party mishap was as Megan and Andy got here, I took the cheese sticks I had out of the oven and they fell all.over.the.floor. There may or may not have been some explicit words muttered and doors slammed, but I think we still managed to have a good night!
