November 21, 2022 - After two long years of isolation due to a pandemic, people are eager to break bread together again. But the onset of cooler temperatures coupled with rising food costs has folks seeking indoor entertainment ideas that won’t break the bank. Indi Hampton, the creative chef behind With Spice blog, has the perfect idea for a fun night with friends and food with The Ultimate Wine & Pizza Party Plan.
Pizza is one of the most popular foods in the United States, with studies showing the average American consuming 40 pizzas a year and 350 slices being eaten every second of the day. Given the food’s popularity, hosting a pizza party at home is a sure-fire winner for everyone with gourmet offerings such as artichoke pizza, Hawaiian pizza, calabrese pizza and even breakfast pizza. The Ultimate Wine & Pizza Party elevates America’s favorite fast food to a gastronomic event that is easy enough for even the beginner cook. Hampton’s plan includes a menu, grocery list, plan for four pizza recipes with wine pairings for each option as well as a homemade ice cream recipe to round out the festivities.
“When Covid hit, I (along with the rest of the world) got really into baking artisan bread,” recounts Indi Hampton. “I took a deep dive into making the ultimate homemade pizza dough, went crazy with flavor combinations, and always, always shared a few slices “on the wall” with our neighbors. We shared so many laughs during those little pizza parties, it was a beautiful silver lining to the pandemic. I wanted to capture our favorite recipes and lessons learned to encourage others to make great pizza and share it with great people.”
"This is the holy grail pizza dough recipe I have been looking for,” says Jason Conlon.
Chris Jones said this about their Ultimate Wine & Pizza Party, "I have had a pizza oven for more than 10 years and have tried at least 10 different dough recipes each year and none have come out as perfect as this one. Thanks so much for sharing such a treasure. Another bonus is we could get the dough ready hours ahead and be cruising by the time everyone arrived for the party.”
The Ultimate Wine & Pizza Party includes all the instructions to create a memorable home gathering with a grocery list, menu, four pizza recipes with wine pairings for each option, and a recipe for homemade ice cream as dessert.
