Pizza Party

Our college days at ASU were spent mostly in the ceramic room; Alvin most of the time and me on special occasions. One thing the group of students and instructors did often was have a pizza party. Now this was not calling for pizza delivery like we do now but actually cooking pizza in kilns. Yes, this can be done and we have continued to carry on this unusual activity all of our married life with kid parties, teenage parties, church parties, adult parties and school parties.

Alvin's college class always have a year end Christmas gift exchange and pizza party. Let me explain how this works. I prepare all the stuff you need - dough, sauce, cheese, pepperoni, sausage, olives, bell peppers, onions, and pineapple. Each person takes a wad of dough and flattens it in a pie pan and then adds whatever toppings they desire. It is than cooked in the gas kiln at around 900 degrees.

Now, my kids have been doing this all their lives so they know that the pizza might be burndt on the bottom or soggy in the middle and very seldom "just right". But, as my girls say; "you just always know it won't be perfect but it is just a fun thing to do." So, Chelsea Pace who experienced her first pizza party tonight (because we invited our kids to join in the party) sorry yours was soggy and Carter's was burndt on the bottom. We just wanted to carry on this tradition with Chandler, Cooper, Carter, Cash and Tatum. I think they had fun!
