Pizza is not just the thing for a laid back night in or a dinner that the kids will love. Pizza is perfect for entertaining, too. Consider making it the dinner solution for these different occasions:
- At your next dinner party, make pizza the main event. Making the dough from scratch will give more delicious, impressive results and Stefano's crust is so easy to make (recipe below). Splurge on luxurious toppings like out-of-the-ordinary cheese and smoked meats, and serve it with a salad of something fun and a bit exotic, like heirloom vegetables, to round out the meal.
- For a more casual spin, let everyone bring their favourite pizza topping to the party. Have the oven fired up, your pizza sauce ready (see Stefano's recipe below) and cut your dough into individual serving sizes for an interactive dinner that takes some of the work off you!
- Offer to bring pizza to the next potluck and you'll be at the top of the next invite list. It's versatile enough to be an appetizer (simply cut slices into snack-size portions) or a main, and you don't have to worry about keeping it hot since it's just as delicious served at room temperature. Keep the toppings special but scant to make sure the crust stays firm, and bring chili flakes and Parmesan cheese for topping.
