Tailgate at home on game day with some help of DIGIORNO® and our homemade ranch dressing recipe. Create a buffet style party spread for your guests to grab, eat and go. The excitement of the game and cheering on your team with your guests will keep you busy enough. Make your party spread simple, yet, delicious so everyone wins.
DIGIORNO® helps you get the most out of game day. Intentionally crafted by the bakery experts at DIGIORNO, each pizza bakes up hot and fresh in your own oven so you can enjoy the moments that matter with the people who matter.
To make our game day spread a self-serve buffet we used large black square platters.
Everyone loves pizza which makes it an easy call when planning a get together. There are several options for DIGIORNO® Original Rising Crust® pizza – we served Supreme, Three Meat and Spinach, Mushroom & Garlic. My younger kids are meat lovers which made the Three Meat DIGIORNO® pizza their favorite while my teen could almost eat the entire Spinach, Mushroom & Garlic pizza on her own.
Black olives are among one of my favorite pizza toppings.
Which pizza topping is your favorite?
DIGIORNO® Original Rising Crust® pizza has a fresh-baked taste that can only come from your oven – so when you’re hosting your crew on game day, you can be confident that you’re making the right call by serving DIGIORNO.
The entire house smelled yummy after baking these pizzas. I was able to fit two pizzas in my oven at a time. Which is perfect for game day. While your guests are digging into the first two pizzas while they are hot, you can toss another round into the oven.
Just look at that crust! With dough that rises to crust perfection, toppings you can’t get enough of and a mouthwatering aroma you’ll crave, DIGIORNO pizza comes out of your oven ready to serve in about 20 minutes.
Before your guests arrive, make up a bath of our homemade ranch dressing to serve with a side salad or to dip your crust in.

We love eating homemade ranch dressing with our pizza. This simple ranch recipe is easy to whip up before our big game day. I serve it in a glass bottle so it is easy to pour. After the party I store the homemade ranch dressing in the refrigerator.
DIGIORNO® Original Rising Crust® pizza is the best for dipping your crust. The breaded crust is so thick and delicious. With our homemade ranch dressing, no bite was left uneaten.
