What is a great fun activity for the birthday party. It is both entertaining and it will help you with your food preparation. The answer is a “Build Your Own Pizza Party”
Here is How You Could Through a Pizza Building Party
Before the party you will need to have pizza dough and all the ingredients that your guests may want to put on their own personal pizza. Also you will want to have some parchment paper to build their pizzas on.
The pizza dough can be store bought or made from scratch. Have the dough separated into little balls. Have enough to cover for the amount of guests who will be there.
Have all your meats, veggies, cheese, sauce all cut up the day before the party so it is not another thing to do on the day of the party. Cover them up with plastic wrap so they stay fresh and place in the refrigerator.
On the day of the party your guests will each get a ball of pizza dough that they will flatten, press and stretch into a flat crust. Then they put some sauce on the crust.
Finally, they will build a pizza from all the items that they could possibly want. Bake the pizza pies following the directions from the recipe or container the dough came in.
All that is left is to enjoy the tasty pizzas and continue to have fun with your guests. But, what do you do while you are waiting for it to bake? That’s where I come in.
Update January 1, 2019
If you are doing a TV Show or Movie theme and have a lot of extra time, why not build a desert pizza as well. This time by pizza crusts that are already backed up and just need the toppings.
A simple desert that my mother used to make was to butter the pizza crust and then sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on it. Pop it in the oven for a few minutes until it is golden brown and let it cool before cutting it up. Be careful that the sugar does not burn.
A fun 30-45 minute magic show while it is baking is an excellent idea. Right after the magic show, the pizzas should be all baked, cooled down a bit and ready to be eaten.
Magical Activity While the Pizzas are Baking
