A BYO Pizza Night!

Last night was such a joy! Hubby and I have been trying to get together with another couple for a while now, and it finally worked out. Friday nights in our household are pizza nights, so we decided to invite them over to build their own pizzas. I picked up a bunch of toppings from TJ’s, that way they had plenty of choices. I also made each person their own personalized pizza crusts.

We had spinach, cashews, artichoke hearts, pesto, marinara, tomatoes, mushrooms, goat cheese, marinara sauce, salami, and basil.

Well the homemade crust baked I set out a veggie tray and some BBQ Kettle chips to snack on, I had about 4 carrot sticks and a handful of chips. This veggie tray was only $4.99 and TJ’s, if I would have bought all of these veggies separately it would have been way more!

Our guests, Josh and Heather, had so much fun building their masterpieces. They were so creative, and are now crowned the king and queen of pizza making! We have such artisic friends!

Hubby was also being the super creative man that he is! He put honey and some juice from an orange on his pizza! It actually tasted pretty good!

We all shared this lovely bottle of TJ’s Coastal Cab, so good and such a great price. I had two small glasses, and enjoyed them both.

Ahhh...Dreyer's ice cream. It's Edy's where I am now. I feel nostalgic for the West (even though it's exactly the same).
