Pizza Bar Party

Pizza parties are not just for kids anymore. Hosting a pizza bar at your next party is a great way to get friends together and excited about creating new pizza flavors everyone will love. While you do not need to be an expert pizza maker or own a pizzeria, you can definitely have fun adding a pizza bar at your party. Follow these tips to create the ultimate pizza bar. 

Pizza Base 

First things first, the dough. The type of dough you choose will depend on the group you invite, but the more options, the better. Because making pizza dough can be complicated, you can simply order your favorite pizza crust from Hungry Howie.

Have fun with the base; we offer many Flavored Crust® pizzas including:

  • Butter crust
  • Cajun crust
  • Garlic herb crust
  • Poppy seed crust
  • Butter parmesan crust
  • Ranch crust

Additionally, you can play with the different crust styles available to provide even more options for your guests, such as:

  • Low carb thin crust
  • Chicago style thick crust
  • Original crust

Another great way to customize your pizza bar is by including one of our specialized pizza bases. Order a deep dish pizza with original sauce and cheese to surprise your guests with this traditional Chicago-style staple.

Pizza Size

Once you have chosen the pizza base, you want to determine what size you will order. Small sizes are great to create individual pizzas, while large pizzas are perfect for creating personalized slices – one flavor per slice. The sky is the limit, here is a simple size guide to reference:

  • Junior pizza – 4 slices
  • Small pizza – 8 slices
  • Deep Dish pizza – 8 slices
  • Medium pizza – 10 slices
  • Large pizza – 12 slices
  • Pantangle pizza – 15 slices

Pizza Toppings

After you have established the base, crust flavor, and size you want, here comes the fun part – toppings. The different toppings are what make a pizza bar unique. The more toppings you have available for your guest, the more creative creations they will be able to make. Some of our favorite toppings are:

  • Pepperoni
  • Buffalo Chicken
  • Pineapple
  • Black olives
  • Ham
  • Italian sausage

Another great idea is to create a small menu with recommended pizza creations. Some of our favorites include:

  • Maui Pizza: with ham, pineapple, bacon, pepperoni, and mozzarella cheese
  • Meat Lovers Pizza: with bacon, ham, pepperoni, sausage, ground beef, and mozzarella cheese
  • Sticky Finger Pizza: with ham, pepperoni, ground beef, sausage, black olive, green pepper, mushroom, onion, and mozzarella cheese

Pizza Sauce

Most people are used to the marinara sauce on their pizzas and don’t even realize there are other sauces they can choose from. Surprise your guests with different pizza sauce options. Some guests may even use the pizza sauces to dip their borders. Finish your pizza bar with some pizza sauce options, such as:

  • Alfredo Sauce
  • BBQ Sauce
  • Ricotta Sauce
  • Garlic Sauce

Your pizza bar is now ready for your next party. Surprise your guests and start combining amazing pizza creations. You will be surprised by how many good creations come out of your pizza party.
