Now that Halloween is over we have officially entered holiday party planning season. I love the holidays, planning parties, visiting friends and family, and eating all that yummy party food! But I don’t like the feeling I get after eating heavy foods or simply eating too much. No matter what the event, I always try to include smarter treats that are better choices for partying and snacking.
For today’s party planning, one of the treats I’m including is mini pizza appetizers created with Sandwich Thins from Weight Watchers®. They’re perfect to use as a mini pizza crust! I’m also using a silver and gold theme which is great color combination for a variety of party events.
My first party tip is to create your menu and identify items you need to purchase. Write your list to avoid having to rely on memory. I found Weight Watchers Sandwich Thins in the bread aisle at our local Walmart.
And speaking of party planning tips, you can download my Party Planning Checklist to help you throughout the holiday season with your special events.
Sandwich Thins are pre-sliced. Separate them and lay them face down. Coat each slice with pizza sauce, add your cheese and toppings. I’m a vegetarian so I made green pepper and mushroom pizza appetizers (recipe is at end of post).
Bake the pizza appetizers in a 425 degree oven for about 7 minutes. Remove, cut in half and arrange on a serving tray. What’s great about this appetizer is you can easily make more in a matter of minutes if you run out. One full pizza appetizer is 3 Weight Watchers points!
Another party planning tip is to use decorative Kraft paper or wrapping paper in lieu of a tablecloth. Tablecloths can get stained from spills, but if you use Kraft paper you can just toss it and not worry about stains.
I hope you’ll find my party planning tips helpful as you navigate the holiday season!
