Football season is in full swing, and you know what that means: game day get-togethers! With that in mind, we’ve teamed up with DIGIORNO Pizza to bring you ideas for hosting your own gathering at home with new DIGIORNO Crispy Pan Pizza! The pan-style pizza is enjoyed straight from your home oven and is perfect for moments when you’re looking for something delicious to serve your guests! With our hosting tips and DIGIORNO’s delicious pizza, you’ll spend less time party prepping, and more time enjoying the game with friends and family!

Tip #1: Make sure you have plenty of pizza on hand! DIGIORNO Crispy Pan Pizza is available in four varieties and bakes fresh right in its own pan. It’s topped with generous amounts of cheese that melts over the edge to create a perfectly caramelized crust. Choose your favorite varieties and replenish as needed, depending on how many guests you are hosting! We loved the DIGIORNO Crispy Pan Pizza Supreme!

Tip #2: Keep the décor simple so it is easy to host the game at a moment’s notice. Our printable football signs are the perfect focal point for your setup. Simply print (two sizes available) and place in a frame or on a bulletin board. Add a table runner to your setup for a pop of color and texture. We used a plaid scarf we had on hand, which added a warm, cozy touch!

Tip #5: You can’t have a party without a delicious dessert! These date bars are easy to make and will have everyone coming back for seconds!

Dark Chocolate Covered Date Bars 
makes 16 bars
Ingredients
16 pitted dates
1 1/4 cup shredded coconut, toasted
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup raw almonds
1 cup dark chocolate, melted
Directions
In a food processor or high speed blender, blend the dates, coconut, vanilla and almonds until it can easily be squeezed together. Press the mix evenly and firmly into an 8-inch wax-lined square pan. Coat with melted chocolate. Refrigerate for 10 minutes to set before slicing into 16 pieces.

Tip #6: Having a fun DIY available during halftime or before kickoff is always a great idea! Keep it game day themed with these custom number beanies. Provide beanies (or have everyone bring their own), then help guests iron-on embroidered numbers of their choice. They’ll be representing their favorite player all season long!
