Homemade Pizza Party for Grown Ups | $40 Dinner Party | Budget Friendly Dinner Party Menu Idea


Homemade Pizza Party

Remember in grade school when Pizza Parties were really something special - a treat for the whole class if everyone got a 100% on the spelling test, a Friday night sleep over, a get-together after your first game.  College my have ruined my desire for mass made delivery pizzas (except I still LOVE Pizza Hut - one of the only chain restaurants we had in Lex, Mo), but I have a new love for gourmet style pizzas.

Here is the menu I created for a Homemade Pizza Party* - for grown-ups... well, sort of.
*This is also one of my $40 Dinner Party Ideas - get the shopping list below!

Shrimp Pesto Pizza

Pizza dough spread generously with homemade pesto, shrimp and parmesan cheese.

Margarita Pizza

A simple Italian classic - crushed tomato sauce topped with fresh mozzarella and fresh basil.

Goat Cheese & Caramelized Onion Pizza

Tangy goat cheese and sweet caramelized onions make this pizza sooo good.  I like to top it with field greens dressed in balsamic vinaigrette for some extra texture and flavor.
