No matter what your wedding type, pizza can make a great wedding reception food choice. After all, it is still your wedding and you should be able to pick what food you want for the reception. Here are some ideas about how to have pizza at your wedding reception and make it the talk of the party for all the right reasons.
For a formal wedding
Pizza can be a part of pre-dinner appetizers in the form of mini-pizzas. Have goat cheese and sun dried tomato on crostini or gouda on toast points with grape tomatoes. If you want to have pizza as a main dish, this can still be done even at a sit-down dinner. Offer the choice of wilted spinach and smoked chicken, caramelized onion and salmon, filet mignon and swiss cheese, or roasted vegetable pizza as main dish options. A good chef can make this a very elegant meal with an arugula and goat cheese salad.
For a very intimate wedding reception
You could host the party at your favorite family-style Italian restaurant. Pizza could be accompanied by spaghetti and meatballs, lasagna, and pasta and pesce Alfredo and finished with tiramisu and dessert wine.
Very casual and family-oriented
can end with pitch-in or barbecue receptions. For a pitch-in, you could have each person bring their favorite home-made pizza flavor. For a barbecue, of course, guests could be treated to a barbecue chicken, sweet onion, and cheddar pizza alongside the pulled pork and cole slaw.
Pizza could top off destination or theme weddings nicely. After a beach wedding, what could be better than Hawaiian pizza and pina coladas or Mexican pizza and margaritas?
