Make the Right Call on Game Day with a Simple Pizza Dinner

Share this post

What kind of football fan are you?

The Big Game is a different experience for everyone.  For a die-hard football fan, this day is all about the game.  Food, guests and entertainment are all secondary.  For fans of the game, whose team is not playing, the game day experience is a little different.  Then there are onlookers who love a good party but may not be all that interested in football.  Chances are you will encounter a few of these guests at your Big Game party this Sunday.  Be prepared and make the right call with a simple dinner that all your guests will enjoy, no matter what kind of fan they are.

You probably fall into one of these categories of guests.  No matter what type of fan you are, you want to be a part of your party and enjoy the experience, not stuck in the kitchen preparing food.  My party this year will be low-key, just the way I like it.  I have my family and a few others to entertain.  There will be decorations, a few activities for the younger audience and not so enthusiastic football fans, and delicious easy food that everyone will love.

I chose to lay out a DIGIORNO® pizza buffet for dinner then serve simple snacks during the game to keep everyone happy.  This keeps me out of the kitchen and let guests grab food whenever they want without missing a single play (or commercial!).  I will definitely have guests of all varieties, those in attendance solely for the game, and those who maybe just came for the half time show. This simple pizza buffet will please all of them.

I used simple decorations; football napkins and football wrapped water bottles arranged on a tray to complement the night’s big event.  A Big Game party doesn’t have to be fancy, a few decorations and delicious food will go a long way.

I baked up a few of my family’s favorite pizzas including DIGIORNO® Original Rising Crust®  Four Cheese and Spinach, Mushroom and Garlic.  DIGIORNO® Original Rising Crust® pizza has a fresh-baked taste that can only come from your oven – so when you’re hosting on game day, you can be confident that you’re making the right call.  With dough that rises to crust perfection, toppings you can’t get enough of and a mouthwatering aroma you’ll crave, DIGIORNO pizza comes out of your oven ready to serve in about 20 minutes. Keeping you with your guests and out of the kitchen.
