8 Creative Ways to Serve Pizza at Your Wedding

Is there anything better than a slice of pizza? Well, maybeeee your fiancé (it honestly might be a toss up). So why not combine your two great loves by serving pizza at your wedding? Turns out, there are some super easy and fun ways to serve pizza at your wedding reception[1], regardless of how casual or formal your wedding might be.

From the cocktail hour[2] to a late-night snack[3] to a make-your-own-pizza station, here are our favorite ways to serve pizza at your wedding. But be warned: These cute and creative wedding ideas will definitely steal a pizza your heart! (Sorry, we couldn't help ourselves.)

While Getting Ready With Your Bridesmaids

It's going to be a long day, so you and your girls will need some cheesy sustenance. Have a few pizzas delivered to your bridal suite so you can chow down while getting ready[4] for the ceremony.

DIY Pizza Bar

Have your guests get their hands dirty with a DIY pizza bar. Let them pick toppings, cheese, and even the sauce. You can do this as the main dish or just as an ongoing option throughout the night.

Passed Appetizers

Birds of a Feather

Who says you need to have trays of fancy hors d’oeuvres during cocktail hour? Instead of formal finger food, offer different kinds of pizza squares as an appetizer option.

Sub for Dinner Rolls

Instead of serving bread and butter with the salad course, put a cheesy flatbread on the table cut into squares for your guests to share. Trust us: Nobody will complain about starting their night off with a good slice.

Dessert

Because everything tastes better in chocolate, right? Forgo the mozzarella and tomato sauce, and serve up a lip-smacking dessert pizza. Think: a chocolate base, some strawberry jam, slices of bananas...yum! Feel free to think outside the box with your caterer[5] on this sweet treat.

Late-Night Snack

As the party goes on and guests sweat off some calories on the dance floor, offer a late-night snack of pizza slices. Either order in from your favorite local pizza place or coordinate with the venue to have them bring out some pies at midnight.

To Go

Wondering what to box up and give your guests as a take-home party favor[6]? Give them something they can munch on during their commute home or back in their hotel rooms. Fill up to-go boxes with mini slices or squares of pizza and have the venue keep them warm until the night ends.

With a Side of a Cute Sign

Pizza puns for the win! Adorn your pizza bar or buffet with an on-theme sign with a slightly cheesy (get it?) saying.
