Super Bowl Pizza Party

Posted by

  • Okay, I know you already know this, but Super Bowl 53 is just weeks away! You know what that means, right? That’s right. It means PIZZA!! Okay, I know that it is not just me that thinks of football and pizza as being one in the same, right? I am all about enjoying a delicious slice of cheesy goodness while watching the big game.

Do you throw a Super Bowl party at your home? What foods do you like to prepare? Many of my friends and family are football lovers and many of them like to throw parties throughout the season, whether it is to celebrate the beginning of the season, college playoffs, NFL playoffs or just because their favorite team is playing, there is always a reason for a party. Do you agree with this sentiment? I do! Of course, I love sports of all kinds and I just love celebrations of all kind. And trust me, I need no special occasion to enjoy some delicious food!

Okay, that’s enough rambling about my love of food and parties, let’s go right back to my love of Pizza. Well that and how some delicious homemade pizza is going to be the hit of my Super Bowl party. That’s right my friends, no takeout for this girl! Some homemade dough, fresh ingredients, and high-quality meat and my guests will be dining on some five-star pizza (am I allowed to call my own homemade food, 5-star?)!

So, what kind of pizza do I plan to cook for my party? Well, I am planning to have quite a few people here so I plan to make several different pizzas to please everyone! Here are a couple of them that I have on the menu:

Actually, before I go there, lets talk crust! I happen to be gluten-free becuase of an allergy, but I won’t only make gluten free crust. I will be making a gluten-free crust, a deep dish crust and a thin crust. I told you, I’m going all out!

CRUST

Almond Flour Pizza Crust (low carb and gluten free) - This one is great for gluten-free diets as well as low carb and keto diets!

Deep Dish Crust - Back in my pre-gluten-free days, I loved me some deep dish crust. Like loved it! It is genuinely one of only 2 things I miss about my old way of eating.

Traditional crust- Look no further than right here at Sassafrass for a delicious traditional pizza crust recipe!

Thin crust pizza - If thin, crunchy crust is your style, you will love this!

Pizza!!

margherita pizza - If you love that fresh from the garden taste, this is your pizza. I actually had this pizza a couple of days ago and oh my goodness it was good!

Basic Pizza - I love this recipe because you can throw any toppings you want on it!

Hawaiian - Yeah, yeah, I know some of you hate it, but I LOVE it and I refuse to be silenced.

Supreme Pizza - If you are the type that loves a little bit of everything on your pizza, this supreme pizza recipe is for you!
