While in many ways pizza is the perfect social food, I've learned that it's a good idea to have a strong plan in place when making it for a large group — a plan for not only the pizzas themselves (which always seem to take longer than I think!), but also a few appetizers to keep hunger at bay while pizzas cook and a few sides round out the meal.
Here is one of my favorite pizza-night menus. It takes pizzeria classics, like marinated olives and tiramisu, and gives them a bit of an update. There's plenty to nibble before, during, and after the pizza is served — no one goes hungry on pizza night!
