Outdoor Pizza Party
For easy summertime entertaining, host a pizza-making party and bake your creations in a wood-fired outdoor oven, which imparts a delicious smoky flavor to the pizzas.

When your guests arrive, serve an Italian-inspired antipasto platter brimming with thinly sliced cured meats, olives, and cherry peppers stuffed with prosciutto and provolone cheese. Then invite everyone to join in the fun and help assemble and bake the pizzas. We offer two combinations of toppings: zucchini with fresh basil, plus spicy Italian sausage with caramelized onion. End the meal with affogato, a sublimely simple Italian dessert that features scoops of homemade vanilla gelato topped with a shot or two of espresso.
