Throwing The Perfect Football Pizza Party

Posted by

Okay, I know you already know this, but the Super Bowl is just days 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.

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!

As I’ve mentioned time and time again in all of my previous pizza posts, one of the most important things about perfecting a pizza recipe is the cookware you use to prepare it. The absolute 100% best way to bake a pizza, my friends, is with a Superstone® BBQ Pizza Stone!

This Pizza Stone from Sassafras® has a natural grooved surface for even heat distribution and a fire-proof finish, perfect for making pizza on the grill in the summertime or any old time you wanna have pizza outdoors!

the superstone® bbq pizza stone can also be used in any conventional or convection oven, giving this stone the most versatility. the unglazed superstone® stoneware pulls moisture from the dough, resulting in a super crispy and delicious crust.
