Here at Gozney, the only thing we love more than pizza is a pizza party!
Pizza is the perfect party food. It’s easy to prepare, you can serve up a range of different toppings to suit all your guests’ tastes, and everyone can just help themselves. So, to help you organise and host the perfect pizza get-together, we have created the ultimate pizza party guide.
Before sending out invitations and firing up your Gozney Pizza Oven, give our pizza party guide a good read! Psst! Ready until the end for 3 pro tips!
How to host a pizza party?
First things first, how do you host a pizza party, anyway? The key is all in the preparation, which isn’t difficult at all... if you follow our guide.
One of the most important aspects of a pizza party (or any type of party) is selecting the menu!
To avoid frustrated guests, we advise asking them about their toppings preferences and if they have any sort of allergies or/and intolerances in advance. Planning your menu will give you time to buy the necessary ingredients to please all your guests.
It's not ideal for a pizza party to run out of pizzas. So, we recommend roughly calculating how many pizzas you need to make sure all your loved ones leave the party with their bellies full of delicious pizza.
Whether you are making or buying your pizza dough, ensure you have some extra just in case. You can always freeze some for your next pizza party. Check out our How to freeze your pizza dough blog for more instructions
If you are making your pizza dough here are a few important tips:

Now the fun part. Ok, so it really depends on the type of pizza party you are hosting. If your guests are seated and they all have plates, you can get very creative with your toppings. However, if your guests are walking around holding their pizza slices (at a kids birthday party for example), the best option is to keep toppings light. You don't want to clean a messy floor after the party!
Checkout our Pizza Recipes for some inspiration.
*Just another reminder - check with your guests for food allergies and intolerances and make sure you have toppings for everyone!
Wood Fired Pizzas
If you are planning to cook your pizzas using wood, bear in mind that it will take a little longer to heat up your Gozney Dome or Roccbox when using wood.
To avoid long waits between pizzas, keep an eye on your Gozney Pizza Oven temperature and add more wood when needed
For more information checkout our How to use Roccbox Wood Burner 2.0 or if you own a Gozney Dome - checkout the Firing with Wood video.
What to serve with pizza
You may be asking yourself, “what drinks go well with pizza?” but that’s the wrong question. The right question is, “what drinks don’t go well with pizza?” The answer to that question is none. There aren’t any drinks that don’t go well with pizza.
Whether it's a summer cocktail, local craft beer, wine or you're looking for a non-alcoholic option, soda is a fantastic choice.
