Prepping pizza ahead of time for party

My twins 1st birthday is this Saturday and I am contemplating making the pizzas instead of ordering.  I'd be making three thin crust style pies.  My question is since life in general is crazy with twins can I make the pizzas ahead of time on parchment paper so I just throw them on when guests arrive?  If so how far in advance can I do this?



  • Absolutely.  When doing multiple pizzas I always use parchment (though some say it's cheating!) Get the stone up to 5-600, throw the pie on with parchment underneath (cut the paper so it's a similar shape as your pie), after 2-3 minutes I lift the pizza and remove the paper so it gets a few minutes of direct contact with the stone.

  • Thanks @GoooDawgs!!  How far ahead of time can I make the pies on the parchment?
  • It can vary - I'd make the dough a couple days in advance of the party to let it rise, then make the pies the day before, put on the egg right before the party starts.  They'll take 6-8 minutes typically.
