I invited some friends over for dinner this past weekend, and I was at a loss as far as what to serve since a couple of them are slightly picky about their food. So I had this idea- make your own Pizza dinner. It was actually really simple. I bought premade pizza dough at the grocery store. As far as toppings, well, I bought several types of cheeses, spinach, really good pepperoni, Prosciutto Ham, fresh tomatoes, sundried tomatoes, baby portabellos, and everyone got to make their own pizza. Simply line up the ingredients for everyone, roll out the dough, and have everyone add whatever they want on top. Make sure you have several pizza pans or have several personal size pizza pans.
For dessert, I figured I'd make a Pizza dessert, which was very simple- Gorgonzola Cheese, Apples, and Cinnamon sugar. This is very easy to make, and make a great dessert or breakfast. Simply roll out a pizza dough, then sprinkle a good amount of cinnamon sugar on top, then put a layer of granny smith apples that have been sliced, sprinkle some gorgonzola cheese on top, then more cinnamon sugar. Next, place a few pieces of cubed butter over the top then bake at 400 degrees until it's a little bubbly and the cheese is slightly melted.
Not only was the food great, it made a really interactive dinner party- everyone enjoyed making their personalized pizza.
