The nostalgia of pizza parties as kids is something we all remember fondly, so how about some pizza party ideas for adults?
That’s right, pizza parties aren’t just for kids anymore! We’ve collected some of our favorite ideas for throwing the perfect pizza party for your friends and family.
And with all of the different toppings, sauces, crusts, and cheeses available now, all of your guests are sure to enjoy your pizza party.
There are a few different elements to consider when planning your pizza party. A number of guests is most important; you’ll want to make sure you have enough pizza for everyone to enjoy!
Think about the space you have as well, whether you are doing homemade or ordering in, you will need lots of space to set everything up. You may want to think about getting a foldable table you can put out for the party.
Throwing the Perfect Pizza Party for Adults
Organizing an adult pizza party isn’t that much different than any other dinner party/get-together. And really, you’re just swapping out a few elements from a kids pizza party; trade the cola for wine and cake for tiramisu and you have all the elements for an elegant evening of enjoying a few slices!
The best part about throwing a pizza party is you can either order multiple pizzas from your favorite spot, have each guest bring a pizza, or set up a make-your-own pizza station!
Pizza Party Food
The title is pretty self-explanatory; pizza of course!
Before deciding on your choice of pizza, check in with your guests about any dietary restrictions. There are lots of options for gluten-free crusts and vegan cheeses, so everyone will be able to enjoy them!
As far as toppings, have the basics on hand (onions, pepperoni, mushrooms, etc) and then add a few more unique ones (artichokes, BBQ chicken, pear, etc.)
Have a salad available as well for a perfectly balanced meal. Select some wine pairings and finish off with a light dessert such as tiramisu or lemon cake.
Pizza Party Decor
Decor for an adult pizza party can pretty much follow any decor you have in mind for the occasion.
For example, if it’s a birthday, you can stick with your streamers and balloons. For the pizza itself, have a table set up where you can have all the pizzas laid out, with signs indicating what kind of pizza. You can do the same with the wine as well. Make sure you have plenty of napkins on hand and you’re all set!
If you really want to impress your guests with the ultimate pizza party, go all out with the decor and theme it to whatever decade you want!
You can do 80s, 90s, or the early 00s, and have guests feel like they’re stepping back in time.
Head to your favorite thrift store to find some pieces for decor, and maybe even an outfit to match! Make a playlist fitting the decade, and enjoy a truly wonderfully nostalgic evening.
Pizza Party Entertainment
Think back to your childhood memories of pizza parties.
While the pizza was certainly one of the best parts, there were also games, movies, and the fun of staying up late and chatting with your friends.
All of these activities can be enjoyed at adult pizza parties as well! There are many games you can choose from that can have any number of players and that is quick as well, so they won’t take up the whole evening.
As for movies, really lean into the nostalgia of it all and put on a movie that you watched as a kid.
This doesn’t even need to be a sitdown affair, put the movie on in the background with the subtitles and guests can sit and watch as much as they like.
And of course, no pizza party would be complete without some conversation among great company!
Adult pizza parties are perfect for any occasion; whether you’re celebrating someone’s birthday, a promotion, or simply looking to catch up with friends and family.
Whether you order in or do homemade pizzas, you still get the benefit of a quick and easy meal so more time can be spent socializing.
So pick your favorite toppings, make a stop at your wine shop, and indulge in an adult pizza party!
