Now onto Jorge’s Fun Pizza Ideas list:
10. MY PIZZA IS SMILING AT ME!
No more boring pizzas: Make a face; an easy one is a smiley; use, for example, bacon for the mouth and a couple of olives for the eyes – single or over slices of boiled egg. Make your face as simple or complex as you wish. Always a success.
9. PIZZA TIME
Make a clock: For example, use bacon for the hands, and pepperoni, olives, or whatever you like in place of the numbers. The size of the pizza is similar to a kitchen’s clock, which nobody’s expecting to have served to eat! This pizza is a success every time. Make sure you take your time eating it :-).
8. YUMMY SURPRISE
Buy several different types of pizzas for this.
Variant 1: Serve the plate(s) with slices of different kinds, ALL UPSIDE DOWN.
Variant 2: Wrap each slice in aluminum foil; see their anticipation as they unwrap each slice not knowing what’s going to be… just great!
7. FLATLAND NO MORE
Let’s make a 3-D pizza, they really stand out :-) Here’s an easy example: make a face and use some boiled carrot as the nose, snowman style! Listen to the comments! Now for some laughs: ask your guests for some more suggestions for this kind of 3-D pizza decoration.
6. HEALTHY PIZZA
Quick and easy. Use a large pizza for this one: make a face using two peach halves (fresh or canned) for the eyes, and a banana, or half a pineapple slice for the mouth. Some salad (or boiled broccoli) on top of the “head” and around makes a nice hair. You can even make a veggie pizza like this. Enjoy.
5. PIZZA SANDWICHES
Making pizza sandwiches spells party spirit right away: Cut the pizza(s) in slices; Pair the slices up turning one over the other. The slices can be from different kinds of pizza. You can also use fillings till your heart’s content: sausage, fruit, salad. Then just have fun.
4. WOW! NOW, THAT’S WHAT I CALL PRACTICAL
Neat idea to easily wow your friends or family: Cut out a round hole in the middle of the pizza — using, for example, an inverted small bowl in the center of the pizza to cut around it; then use that empty space on the plate to (carefully) serve a drink, placing there a glass, bottle or can. This would work great with personal size pizzas best!
3. BIRTHDAY PIZZA
Cut out 3 or 4 pizza circles of different sizes (you can also use one or more small pizzas); stack them at the center of a regular (or large) pizza with the largest at the bottom and the smallest on top; place a birthday candle on top of this layered pizza: They will NEVER forget that!
2. ROMANTIC PIZZA
Do you think a pizza dinner can’t be romantic? Think again: simply cut out a hole in the pizza as in suggestion 4, but use a nice small vase (with NO water) with fresh light flower(s) instead of the drink: watch her face.
Finally, number one in our “Top ten fun pizza ideas” list …..
1. GET CREATIVE WITH THE MIDDLE
This is really fun: use your imagination to come up with ideas for delicious uses for the above suggested pizza’s hole; Some examples: Serve salty stuff, like chips, sauce, pickles. You can also use it to serve dessert: fruit, pudding, etc. Watch people’s faces as you serve them these creative pizzas! You’re the undisputed Pizza Chef now!
