It’s a patriotic pizza party! How to make sweet and savory red, white, and blue pies

This is a pizza party fit for the fourth… or 24th!

The Fourth of July is just around the corner. The best part of the party is the star-spangled spread.

Recipe creator Amy Richardson says a patriotic pizza party is the perfect way to celebrate! This party idea lets each guest pile americana-inspired toppings on their pizza. Amy shared a red, white, and blue pizza menu—and her favorite method and gadget for authentic fired pizzas.

When it comes to pizza, authenticity matters. Amy insists that the secret to a truly Neapolitan crust lies in using ‘00 Flour.’ This finely milled flour creates a delicate, chewy texture that’s essential for an authentic pizza experience. While the traditional method takes a bit more time, the results are undeniably worth it.

If you’re short on time, Amy says you can just take your favorite pizza crust recipe and create a patriotic pizza feast.
