Making Pizza for Your Party 

Plotting logistics in the last week or so before is a smart idea, depending on the size of your party. Making a prep list, or the list of things you need to get ready before cooking, is an even better idea. First, keep in mind that the flavor and performance of homemade dough are ideal when produced one to three days in advance of usage. Some pizza experts advocate for a cold proof that lasts longer than three days, but in my opinion the flavor won’t improve over the third day, and by then it’s undoubtedly starting to go bad. Second, if at all feasible, make your toppings the night before. If made the previous evening and adequately chilled, the majority of pizza components, including meats, veggies, cheeses, and sauce, will be OK. This will ensure that you are prepared for a crisis.

What should you do now that the day of the feast has arrived, your ingredients are ready, your dough is rising, and your guests will be here soon? Let’s consider a couple additional things, then. Where will the pizza be made? Where is everyone eating? How would you look after the visitors? With big gatherings, it’s a good idea to serve guests close to the kitchen. Why? because you have a lot of pizza to prepare and it gets cold very soon! If you are too far from the table, running back and forth might take up valuable time. Additionally, cooking pizza for guests is quite a show.
