Pizza Party Essentials: Throw A Truly Italian Birthday Bash At Home
Birthdays really are special occasions, but it’s not always easy to serve up a meal that will leave everyone wowed. Luckily, placing an order for some of the best pizza in Indiana can make it easier, and Bucceto’s is happy to cater, deliver, or just offer you your favorite carryout order.
But once you’re ready to take the party to the next level, it’s time to add some extra Italian dishes to the menu. Doing so can not only create a pizza party into a truly Italian birthday bash, it can also complement the pizza perfectly. So, pick out your favorite pizzas from Bucceto’s and whip up some of the following easy to make light eats and Italian dishes:
• Pasta Salad – You can customize pasta salad to be yours! Use your favorite pasta, boil it and let it cool. Then, add fresh veggies like cucumber, kalamata olives, tomato, and anything else you like. Finish by tossing in your favorite dressing.
• Caprese Salad – The classic caprese goes perfectly with anything. Place a slice of fresh tomato, top with fresh mozzarella, then top with fresh basil and drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette.
• Pasta! – Piccata, spaghetti, ravioli, and more. All of them work great as an Italian birthday dish, and most are easy enough to make. Try to make pastas that compliment each other – a red sauce, a butter herb sauce, and so on. And remember, you can never have too much cheese!
• Baked Eggplant – This works great with traditional eggplant as well as smaller Ichiban eggplant. Slice the eggplant in 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick slices, then arrange on a baking sheet. Top with some olive oil, and bread crumbs and bake in the oven until almost golden brown. Remove, add parmesan cheese, and finish baking. They’re great on their own or dipped in marinara!
• Meat and Cheese Platter – Use deli meats and cheeses to create a charcuterie board. You can also add some nuts, crackers, and so on to round out the flavor profiles. This one’s stunningly simple to create – just get the ingredients and arrange them on the tray!
