Best Menu Options to Serve with Pizza

Friday Aug 13, 2021

Are you looking for a little something extra to go with your pizza on pizza night? Or, perhaps you are planning a pizza party and what to find the best sides to serve with pizza. Once you’ve ordered your cheesy delight with all your favorite toppings, what else do you need? If you are wondering what to serve with pizza, we got you.

A Crisp, Fresh Salad Hits the Spot

Adding a crisp, fresh salad to your pizza order is a natural pairing. Fresh greens, plenty of veggies, and delicious dressing bring delicious balance to the meal. And, it makes you feel less guilty for eating pizza in the first place.

If you are a traditionalist, an Antipasto Salad is the go-to option. Try Garden Salad or a Greek Salad if you want something lighter, or a Chef Salad or a Chicken Salad if you're in the mood for something heartier. Looking to spice it up? The Spicy Chicken Salad is for you.

Chicken Wings and Pizza, a Match Made in Heaven

Chicken wings and pizza go together like just about any perfect pairing you can think of. What began as a throwaway cut of chicken has risen to the height of popularity, especially where served with pizza. Wings have a lot in common with pizza, so it’s no surprise. They are saucy, often spicy, and eaten with the fingers, what’s not to love about an order of Original Howie Wings® to go with your favorite pizza. Served with spicy bread and ranch or blue cheese dressing, they are the perfect accessory for pizza. If you prefer, try Spicy Chicken Tenders with a side of Cajun Bread or Original Boneless Howie Wings®.

Howie Pizza Rolls, the Perfect Pizza Handheld

What’s like a pizza, but not a pizza, but goes with pizza? Howie pizza rolls, of course. Melty mozzarella cheese and pepperoni rolled up in freshly made pizza dough and baked perfection, what goes better with pizza than that? This little package you can eat in a few bites is packed with flavor and still leaves room for pizza, making it one of the best pizza sides you can choose.

Howie Bread, the Pull apart That Brings People Together

Sometimes, it’s all about the dough, and that’s the case with Howie Bread®. If you think it’s just another way to eat cheese and dough, you wouldn’t be exactly wrong. If you think it sounds pretty delicious, you’d be exactly right. Add some Stuffed Howie Bread® filled with mozzarella and cheddar cheese and topped with butter, herb, garlic, and parmesan. That’s three cheeses and a whole lot of flavor. Bring this home and watch everyone gather around and pull off tasty pieces, and pop them into their mouths.

Bread on bread shouldn’t make sense, but somehow it does. These flavorful pull-apart breads come in stuffed with pepperoni, bacon, or jalapeños; two kinds of cheeses; and a garlicky-buttery topping. Cajun Howie Bread® and Asiago Howie Bread® round out the selections. And don’t forget to end your meal with Cinnamon Howie Bread®.

Oven-Baked Subs, the Perfect Pizza Side Dish

Of course, we think pizza is perfect all on its own. But, adding some delicious oven-baked subs can only make it better. At Hungry Howie’s®, we make subs a little bit differently. Our oven-baked subs feature delightful pizza dough, folded over and stuffed with fillings such as steak, cheese, and mushrooms; spicy chicken tenders and marinara sauce; ham, pepperoni, Italian sausage, cheese, and sub sauce; meatballs and mozzarella cheese; or ham and mozzarella, to name just a few. Chicken Bacon Ranch, Pizza Deluxe, and Turkey oven-baked subs all go well with a piping hot pizza pie.

Oven-Baked Pasta for Even More Carby Goodness

Pizza and pasta are a natural match. Penne pasta in marinara sauce with a choice of meatballs, mushrooms, or sausage and baked to golden brown is an irresistible side to serve with pizza. It’s sure to tingle your tastebuds in a way that is difficult to resist. Prefer something a little zestier? Try baked pasta with spicy, breaded white meat and served with marinara sauce. You can’t beat the carby goodness paired with pizza. The combination of zesty sauce and pasta makes an appetizing addition to your plate.

Chocolate Chip Cookie for the Win

And lastly, not exactly a side, but the perfect ending to pizza night or a pizza party: the Howie Cookie™. Featuring Ghirardelli® chocolate chips, this large cookie fulfills that after-dinner craving for something sweet.

Level-Up Your Pizza Order with the Best Sides

Although pizza is perfect on its own, it’s fun to pair it with a few sides. Of course, you want sides that are delicious, but they can’t be so much effort that they take away from your pizza eating time. Wings, pull apart pizza bread, baked pastas, and oven-baked subs are all great choices to serve with your favorite pie. Add a few of these sides to your next order to round out your pizza night or pizza party eats.
