A Crafter Needs to Eat

Make Your Own Pizza Movie Night

I’m writing this post to share an idea for a fun dinner party idea or family movie night.

My partner John loves to cook and loves to make homemade pizza. He’s gotten pretty good at it.

At first he would make his own pizza dough/crust but then we discovered that a local grocery store has a wonderful pre-made pizza dough in their deli section. He pre-bakes the pizza pie/crust before putting on toppings and after putting topping on he brushes the crust with olive oil and garlic salt which adds a nice touch to the pizza after it is baked with the toppings.

We invited friends over for a movie night and thought it would be fun for dinner to do a “make your own pizza” event where everyone could choose their own toppings for their pizzas.

So John, using the pre-made pizza dough, split each pre-made dough in half and made 4 pizzas bases and pre-baked them:

We had a whole counter top of pre-cut and pre-cooked (like for the Italian hot sausage, onions, green peppers, etc.) toppings, cheeses and of course pizza sauce for people to select from for their pizza.

Of course I forgot to take a photo of that display but here are photos from the rest of the “make your own pizza” event:

Are you hungry for pizza now after seeing those photos?

The pizzas were exceptionally delicious and we were laughing as one of our friends kept exclaiming – “this is the best pizza ever”. We think it was the “best pizza ever” because he had put it together himself – ha!

We watched a science fiction movie The Edge of Tomorrow and gorged ourselves on pizza!

  1. I have been wanting to find a way to heat pizza using a brick fire oven. The DIY home versions that people have featured on Youtube looked like they would encourage a visit from the Fire Department. I believe Pizza is one of the best meals. You get can get all your major food groups covered.
