Itza Pizza Party at Your Place - Pier 1


February 9th is National Pizza Day, and there’s only one way to celebrate: a pizza party at your place! 

Prepare Your Pizzeria

Set the table with red and white checkered table linens, drippy Chianti-bottle candles, and parm and pepper shakers, and your guests will think they’ve stepped into a pizzeria. Add a chalkboard menu and a playlist of Italian classics (which absolutely must include That’s Amore) and they’ll know this is going to be a night to remember. 

Roll Out New Recipes

Take a walk on the saucy side and try unique pizza recipes and techniques that just might become your new Friday night faves.  

Cast Iron Creations

Create a craveable crispy, chewy crust with a screamin’ hot oven and a cast iron pizza pan. Get your dough from your favorite pizza place (yes, you can do that), then take full credit for your magical concoctions. Cast iron pizzas look beautifully rustic served right out of the pan -- or on a gorgeous pizza paddle that doubles as decor.
