3 Tips for Planning the Perfect Catered Pizza Party

Parties are fantastic, but planning them can be burdensome, especially when you need to feed a crowd. So, what to serve for dinner?


Don't overcomplicate things; go for something everyone loves. In other words, hire a pizza catering service — that already sounds like a party, a pizza party that is.


Here's the thing. Pizzas are one thing, but many, meaning a highly-skilled pizza maker can cater to all preferences and diets, which means happy guests. Now that we've chosen the menu, here are three tips for planning a catered pizza party.

1. Choose the Right Sides


Pizza might be the star of the show, but it shines best when offered along with the right supporting actors.


Turning a party into an authentic feast means you must offer more than an excellent main course; you must provide variety as well, which means having around fresh garden salads, cheese boards, artisan bread, and even some sweet treats to end the night with a high note.


See your friends and family fill their plates with sweet and savory treats of all colors, sizes, textures, and temperatures. That's a proper banquet right there.

2. The Drinks Matter


Yes, food is essential, but come on, you'll need a few boozy drinks to pair with your pizza and loosen everyone up and get the conversation started.


The good news is that when it comes to food and drink pairings, pizza is incredibly versatile. A cheesy slice of pizza goes well with both a cold beer and a robust glass of red wine. Pizza is noble like that.

Make sure you offer several drink alternatives. Beer and wine should be fine, but a pitcher of a wine-based cocktail, like a citrusy sangria, could be a crowd-pleasing option as well.


3. Start The Night With An Experience


Having a professional pizza maker catering to your guests is fun enough already, but what if you could get your loved ones to get their hands dirty?


Arrange for a hands-on pizza class for your closest guests. It's a fun experience to get the night started. Making your pie changes you; you'll never see pizza the same way!


Get cooking and try out your flavor combinations; a pizza lesson, a party, and drinks. That sounds like a plan to us!
