There are currently 12 pizza holidays in the U.S. (see the list below). The third Friday in May is National Pizza Party Day. You’ve got a few days to plan your pizza party.

It can be as simple as a homemade pizza at home with store-bought dough.

Check out the recipe below for Antipasto Pizza, is vegetarian as shown (photo #1), but can have added prosciutto or other Italian cured meat (photo #2).

DeLallo made this pizza using fresh spinach, their Italian-Style Pizza Sauce, dough from their DeLallo Pizza Dough Kit, and Provolini Antipasti, a jarred medley of cubes of provolone cheese, tender button mushrooms, black and green olives, and sweet red peppers, in canola oil.

We preferred to use the ingredients we had on hand: pitted black Nicoise and pitted green Castelvetrano olives, a jar of roasted red peppers, and fresh mushrooms.

And while the original recipe called for baby spinach, we preferred the peppery bite of baby arugula.

You can also use Italian antipasto meats: prosciutto, soppressata, and different types of salame.

To spread the flavor, cut them into strips.

  • 1 pound pizza dough
  • 3/4 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 cup shredded provolone cheese
  • 1 cup antipasto ingredients: olives, mushrooms, roasted red peppers
  • Optional antipasto meats
  • Handful of fresh baby arugula or spinach leaves

    1. PREHEAT the oven to 450˚F. Shape the pizza dough for a thin crust. Place on a greased baking sheet or pizza pan and bake for 5 minutes.

    2. REMOVE from the oven and top with sauce, cheese, and antipasto ingredients. Bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

    3. TOP with fresh arugula or spinach leaves and serve.
