Getting creative with summer entertaining and grilling can be easy with these simple party food ideas. Pizza and a vegetable tray are the perfect combination. After baking pizza on the grill, I’m totally hooked on pizza vs burgers or hot dogs for a barbecue! So you’ll notice some yummy Ristorante Pizza by Dr. Oetker on my patriotic party table. It’s the best for grilling because of the delicious thin crust.

Easy 4th of July Low Carb Recipe

For a low carb option this 4th of July, this veggie tray is one of the easiest things to make! Along with the American flag vegetable tray and grilled pizzas, I made my favorite dill dip recipe and turned it blue to complete the American flag design. I searched through my cabinets to find a blue square container and once it was all together, I thought this veggie tray turned out terrific!

How Do You Make An American Flag Vegetable Tray?

Making this vegetable tray is as easy as 1,2,3! I have to admit that dipping the delicious crispy pizza into the dill dip is very tasty! I found these cute red, white and blue containers at Michaels and they were perfect for serving the grilled pizza.

Can you guess what I made the stars from? They are radishes cut with a small star fondant cutter! You could use cucumbers, but they won’t be as white. A star cookie cutter would be great too.

–> Get a star cookie cutter in various shapes on Amazon here.

How Did You Make the Dill Dip Blue?

I added blue food coloring to my dill dip. I think using a blue sandwich container also helped it look bright colored. You’ll want to gradually add a few drops of food coloring until you get the desired blue you like. Get a blue container like mine on Amazon here.

I hope you enjoy this vegetable tray platter idea! If you grill some pizza or make this veggie tray for the 4th of July, share a photo with me on social media. I’d love to see how it turned out!

Easy Pizza Party Ideas! How to make a pizza bar with Freschetta Gluten Free frozen pizza. Buffet idea for a family dinner, birthday party or graduation.
When Freschetta asked me to partner with them, I was very happy to try their gluten free pizza. This great tasting pizza is perfect for me, because I’m trying my very best to cut back on carbs, but I love pizza way too much! Now I can eat pizza and not feel guilty!

Whether you are allergic to gluten, or just want a pizza you can feel a little better about like me, this is a must try pizza! It comes in thin and crispy pepperoni or four cheese variety. I love that they only use 100% real cheeses such as rich mozzarella, asiago, fontina and Parmesan. Find it in your frozen food section and add your own toppings.

Today I’m sharing a great idea for a pizza party! Freschetta’s Gluten Free Pizza is great to serve along side of regular pizza for those in your family who want to join in the pizza fun, but can’t because of their allergy.

My kids can literally not think of anything better than a trip to Chuck E. Cheese’s. With tokens filling their little palms and the sounds of games dinging in the background, it’s pure kid magic. Paying taxes doesn’t hold the same magical feeling for grown-ups. But the good news this tax season is that Chuck E. Cheese’s is easing some of the tax pain with a special Tax Day BOGO offer. When customers arrive at Chuck E. Cheese’s on April 18 and order an of Chuck E. Cheese’s Thin & Crispy pizzas, they get a second Thin & Crispy pizza for free. This offer requires no crazy tax loopholes and includes any of the Thin & Crispy pizzas, including the Thin & Crispy Pepperoni pizza, which has beat Pizza Hut in a nationwide pizza test. When Chuck E. Cheese’s offered me the chance to come in and enjoy their buy-one-get-one Thin & Crispy pizza Tax Day offer, my kids essentially thought we had won the lottery. The lottery of tokens that is. We quickly set a date with our best buddies, and the Chuck E. Cheese’s countdown was on. Our gang sampled the Thin & Crispy cheese pizza. We couldn’t pull them away. Chuck E. Cheese What better way to celebrate your refund than by hanging out with your family at the always kid-friendly Chuck E. Cheese’s? With affordable pricing and convenient locations, you can’t beat an afternoon at Chuck E. Cheese’s. unnamed-13 Just ask these kids… unnamed-12 Chuck E.

Who doesn’t love an easy and delicious dinner plan? I’m happy that Ristorante’s pizza is available to make that happen! Their pizza tastes about as close as you can get to homemade (you’d never guess it was frozen), and it comes in nine different gourmet flavors, including Mozzarella, Pepperoni Pesto and Quattro Formaggi.

Whether you’re hosting a dinner party with friends or finally sitting down to a family meal after a hectic summer, this yummy pizza and free printable conversations starters are perfect!

48 Free Printable Dinner Conversation Starter Cards. Perfect Ristorante Pizza meal idea for your family or dinner party!

Dinner conversation starter cards are simple to print, cut and have handy for any meal! I’ve got 48 cards to keep you busy for many meals. It’s so much fun to draw a card and find out the answers from your family and guests! One of my favorite questions is, if you had to be trapped in a TV Show, which one would it be and why?

As a kid, I used to dream about being on Fantasy Island and having different fantasies come true each week. I’d have to say that is where I would want to be trapped! Plus, the 70’s style was pretty fun and I love to disco dance. ha! I bet my kids would answer Full House. I swear… that is on our TV all of the time around here.

Grab some Ristorante pizza, salad and conversation starter cards below to have a fun and simple night in!
