Pizza and dessert? Why not.
We all love our pizza and our dessert, separately, but no rule says we can’t have them both. Desserts give even simple meals a sweet ending. The secret to capping off an unforgettable meal lies in serving a dessert that complements your main course which is, in this case, pizza.
Here are some quick and easy dessert ideas to end a casual pizza party:
It’s hard to go wrong with a tiramisu, which name translates to “cheer me up.” This sinful coffee-based dessert is made from several layers of ladyfingers, cream, and cocoa, paired with fresh mascarpone and bold espresso. Bursting with flavor, it’s the perfect follow-up to rich or spicy-flavored pizza such as sausage and pepperoni.
A staple in the Sicily region, many find Cannoli the favorite Italian dessert for any Italian meal. It is usually made of sugary sweet ricotta in a fresh, crisp shell and drizzled with rich chocolate sauce.
Baklava is another pastry that ranks high on the list of treats to eat after enjoying an Italian meal. It is a rich, golden pastry made of flaky layers of filo and walnuts, held together by syrup or honey.
If your guests require a pick-me-up after a filling pizza dessert, affogato is your best bet. This is a coffee-based dessert, usually with vanilla ice cream or gelato, topped or “drowned” with a shot of espresso.
As pizza places these days also offer desserts, it’s easier for hosts to throw stress-free parties that are also enjoyable and satisfying. Pizzeria Vecchia, for instance, offers authentic pizza fresh out of wood fire ovens, as well as mouthwatering Italian desserts lovingly prepared to provide a sweet ending to get-togethers. We also deliver 24 hours a day, seven days a week, letting you enjoy freshly-prepared Italian meals whenever and wherever you crave them.
