Pizza Night

For the last several weeks we've had a weekly pizza night. Saturday night, to be specific. It's been a huge amount of fun! The first few weeks it was just the four of us but then we decided pizza night was a great way to have people over for dinner, so we've had several rounds of friends come to enjoy it with us. I have really gotten good at making dough from scratch and baking it on our pizza stone. I was just telling Matt tonight that we should get another one because then I could cook two at a time instead of four in succession.

Tonight was our first round of guests from Iris and Eloise's school. It was a family we like but haven't had a chance to spend much time with. They have children the ages of both of ours, so that is nice for the kids to be able to play. We ate yummy pizza, drank wine, did our best to keep Eloise from smashing on the other children too terribly much and did lots of chatting.

All of us are really enjoying our special nights! Our Saturdays are getting booked up nicely with all sorts of friends old and new, coming by.

I need some new pizza ideas, though! Mostly I make typical pies-- pepperoni, vegetarian, greek, a spicy one with jalapenos for Matt. I need some good ideas for fun toppings!

  1. How wonderful! It sounds like fun. Wish I could be one of the invitees!

    One of my fav pizza toppings-- spinach, red onions, and crumbled feta cheese... divine!
