friday night - pizza night

If you haven't had a pizza party since your 10th birthday party... it's time to throw one!
The girls got together to go to Farmer's Market on Thursday (our adventures can be seen here) and we got all kinds of yummy items - that to me sounded like would make great pizza toppings - so i said - hey, "PIZZA PARTY AT OUR HOUSE TOMORROW NIGHT!" so, it was set. We would provide the dough, sauce, cheese, basic toppings, salad and some wine - guests brought any "special" toppings that they wanted plus some wine and dessert.

the stats:
- 10 friends
- 2 dogs
- 1 liam
- 8 pizzas
- 1 raspberry lemon tart with ice cream (todd made the tart onsite - even the dough was from scratch - he is a MASTER baker!)
- LOTS of toppings like: fresh tomatoes, basil, garlic, onions, cilantro, mozzarella, olives, ham, chicken, pepperoni, pepperoncini, arugula etc. etc.
- lots of wine, and a few old school rap lines

we set all the toppings out and got creative... probably the most creative was brookes "garlic, arugula, olives, pepperoncini drizzled with truffle oil!"

but we had the basics too.

meet my cute hubby, the chef - he looks and cooks like bobby flay

a few pizzas waiting to be put back on the grill
... and some warming up

...the assembly line - taking requests
...just a salad favorite - classic margherita
... i think this was pesto, chicken and garlic

the recycle bin at the end of the night.
