Are you going to throw a party soon?
Many of us tend to think of parties as something that is for kids only. But a party, like a birthday celebration, could actually be the perfect excuse to gather friends and family that you haven’t seen in a long time. A fun party will create good memories and help you stay in touch with the people you care about in an, otherwise, hectic everyday life.
If you’re looking for some food inspiration for the party, we recommend tapas. Tapas is the perfect combination of several dishes, and is often served with an “aperitif”. It doesn’t make you completely full, and it’s great for social events like a birthday party. It gives the guests a topic for small talk. “Oh, have you tasted this one?”
And if you do need a small talk topic, you could for instance tell your guests that the tapas dishes was originally not meant for eating? The tradition started out in Spain, where they needed something to cover their sherry glasses from annoying flies. So they put a small piece of bread or meat on top of it! And eventually they started to put food on top of the bread.
Pizza is not a type of tapas, you say? Well, it can be. The definition of tapas are small plates of food. And in this recipe, we’re going to make 10 portions of small pizza plates. This pizza is perfect for both kids and grown ups!
1 large pizza crust
½ can of preferred pizza sauce
Roasted pine nuts
- Preheat the oven to 225°C (435 °F).
- Cut the crust into 10 small pieces. Spread the sauce evenly on the crust.
- Top the pieces of crust and sauce with cheese, chorizo, parma, and roasted pine nuts.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes.
- When done, top the dish with arugula salad.
And that’s it! Now you have a tapas dish that everyone is going to like.
