Pizza Night!

IMG_0094
Our numbers sadly dwindled this time because several partners had to work.

Last night was the monthly meeting of our Supper Club. Our lovely hostess Laura planned a pizza night that was admirably in keeping with her Paleo diet, meaning that the crusts were made of almond flour. To be honest, I was a bit skeptical about the taste and texture compared to regular wheat flour crusts, but I was surprised at how delicious they were. I really shouldn’t have been surprised because Laura is an excellent cook who would never serve us anything less than the best!

Guests were responsible for bringing toppings: 1 meat, 1 vegetable, 1 cheese. As a result, we had a fantastic spread of options that included sausage, spicy Genoa salami, pepperoni, crab meat, goat and feta cheeses, mozzarella, caramelized onions, roasted peppers, pineapple, hot peppers, homemade pesto, a roasted garlic spread, and lots more.

This was a first for me — crab meat on a pizza — but it was so good I’ll definitely be adding it to the usual repertoire.

Dessert was another delicious Paleo-friendly creation — an orange-almond cake topped with blueberry sauce and whipped cream. Positively decadent!

I thought the pizza party idea was a particularly good idea for a supper club theme because of how interactive it is. It was fun to construct our own gourmet pizzas and there was minimal waiting time for them to bake, since the almond crusts were pre-cooked. Next month is at my house, so I’d better get thinking about a good theme idea. Any suggestions?

  1. I’ve done a couple of kid’s birthday parties where the children made their own pizzas and it’s a lot of fun.

    For your next party, how about a Middle Eastern mezze table?

  2. Sounds fun! We are doing a dinner party with friends all out of the same cookbook (Plenty). We all recently received the cookbook and this seems like a great way to get exposure to a bunch of recipes in one sitting.
