To make things easy we set up a pizza buffet on the dining table where guests can help themselves. Along next to the pizzas I laid out glasses and a bottle of wine in a chiller as well as a large salad bowl. To make it a pretty presentation, I laid out some eucalyptus as a runner and set the pizza’s up at varying heights using a pizza stone and a cake plate.I set up cheese plates around the kitchen and living room for people to nibble on and place settings around a large coffee table to carry on the mix of casual/fancy and to create an intimate vibe. I am pretty sure someone has to have proven that you can’t hold on to pretension while sitting on the floor. I used woven chargers (you might remember them from my DIY headboard. I told you I’d re-use them), ceramic plates, gold flatware, striped napkins and a little bunch of eucalyptus and a thistle to top it off. And now onto the pizza! I made two kinds of pizza, one savory sausage and one vegetarian that is a little sweet and a little spicy and both start with a homemade crust. I have two local restaurants nearby that make incredible gourmet pies and I created two pizza’s inspired by my favorites from each place.
