DiGiorno Crispy Pan Pizza with Marinated Summer Veggie Salad

My partnership with DIGIORNO pizza to highlight their new Crispy Pan Pizza has provided us with a delicious summer party entree, fresh from the pan, served with a Marinated Summer Veggie Salad for a casual gathering!

Marinated Summer Veggie Salad

Last summer we hosted a summer pizza party in our old backyard. This year, I’m back with an alfresco summer party at our new mountain home!

It’s a party dream to host in the great outdoors in central Oregon, with warm nights and beautiful skies. Let’s just say, there’s always a warm, magical touch.

Our front deck is our secret place, our hideaway place, as if we’re in a tree fort. We’re surrounded by aspen and fir, and it’s a fun place to relax, sip on our favorite drinks, and eat a bite of something yummy—pizza!

DIGIORNO is introducing Crispy Pan Pizza, perfect for fun casual gatherings!

We love serving DIGIORNO pizza when entertaining, not only because it’s delicious, but it saves time in the kitchen, which gives us more time with family and friends!

We’ve found that everyone seems to LOVE a pan-style pizza! (And a yummy side salad, like this Marinated Summer Veggie Salad.)

But the question is, how do you get a crispy, baked fresh from your own oven, pan-style pizza?

DIGIORNO Crispy Pan Pizza bakes up hot in its own single use baking pan.

New DIGIORNO Crispy Pan Pizza, is topped with edge to edge cheese, for a crust that is crispy and caramelized on the outside, and soft and tender inside.

What’s not to love about this?

Taking it a step further, we pre-sliced the pizza (everyone’s favorite Pepperoni, and a meat-lover’s Three Meat Pizza) and served it as the main course for our party!

Entertaining is all about putting your own spin on how you like to serve food! With so many casual ways, it’s super-fun to make your summer table fit your style!

For this gathering, we brightened up the table with a white linen tablecloth, paper napkins, and fresh aspen clippings for the centerpiece.

Our kids were all home, we invited a special guest, and we cooked up a summery-fresh appetizer, Corn Chorizo Dip, and enjoyed the evening in simplicity and style!

The Marinated Summer Veggie Salad was also a party hit. I like to call it “summer in a bowl,” because it’s everything we love … cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, onions, and tons of fresh herbs. Make your own lemony vinaigrette—DELISH!

It takes intentional planning to make these special times happen, even if it’s not super-fancy–sometimes it’s simply about serving good food, and just being together!

For hours.

Cheers to summer and easy entertaining!

This is my favorite summer salad to take to picnics, potlucks, or serve at a pizza party!
