The good news: Pizza night doesn't have to be a well-planned out, fancy affair. With good conversation and a simple (but strategic) food and drink menu, you can make any night of the week a pizza party. And your beverage menu only needs one item: some classic Stella Artois for a cold, crisp, goes-with-everything beer that makes a casual night at home just a little more special.

Serve your Stella alongside a DIY pizza bar, leaving out a few uncooked pies and small dishes of toppings for people to make their own specialty creations. Think classics (olives, mushrooms, caramelized onions), fun sauces (pesto, garlic oil, hot honey), and unexpected additions (pineapple, artichokes, arugula) for a well-rounded spread with a touch of pizzazz.
