A Fun & Festive Make-Your-Own-Pizza Party

One of the coolest things about having 5 kids is that it doesn’t take much to turn an ordinary dinner into a party. Add a couple friends and one set of grandparents, and there you go – party central! As you can imagine, it’s kind of hard to turn to an offer to host a holiday party “for kids from 1 to 92″ with Flatout Flatbreads. Because now, we’re talking party and pizza – two things sure to score big mom points for me from the kids!
Since our party spanned the ages, including Jill at 2 as the youngest up to Grandpa and Grandma, I wanted to make sure we had plenty of yummy options for everyone involved. So I put together an international-themed make-your-own-pizza buffet so that we could all create the pizzas of our dreams. Using the Flatout flatbreads made the entire process a snap.
We began the night with two theme-appropirate appetizer pizzas for everyone to share. We had a crispy Spicy Italian Flatbread topped with pesto, tomatoes and fresh mozzarella and a toasted Whole Wheat Flatbread topped with hummus, cucumber slices, Feta cheese, chopped parsley and pine nuts. They were both a hit with everyone! (And I loved the hummus one so much that it has become my favorite lunch on a regular basis now.)
For the make-your-own-International-pizza buffet, I tried to cover as many bases as humanly possible to allow for some fun and delicious creations. Here’s a list of all the ingredients available for the party-goers to top their desired Flatout flatbread selections:
I also set out individual squares of aluminum foil so that everyone could build their pizzas directly on the foil for easy transferring to the oven.
Everyone had a blast building their pizzas and no two were the same. Since I was in charge of the oven, I had the pleasure of seeing each creation, and trust me, there were same great ones!
We are actually hoping to recreate this DIY pizza party with our neighbors for a New Year’s celebration since it was so much fun. I love how endless the possibilities are and how easy the entire process is with the Flatout flatbreads.
Here’s a little more info on the Flatout flatbreads so that you can start planning your own party. The flatbreads are available in 4 flavors: Rustic White, Spicy Italian, Heritage Wheat, and Rosemary & Olive Oil. The pizzas can be baked in the over or cooked on a grill for tasty pizza in about 6 minutes.
