We’re all missing in-person events as we take Zoom calls from our couches and heat up another pot of coffee.

Upgrade your Corporate Pizza Party
Who doesn’t love a hot, gooey pizza? Almost no one. It should come as no surprise, then, that the savory pie accounts for more than 10 percent of all foodservice sales.
Part of pizza’s popularity can be attributed to its many possible incarnations. Crust styles run the gamut from ultra-thin to deep dish; sauces range from slightly sweet to spicy; and toppings vary from minimalist to crust-crushing. In other words, there’s a pizza to suit almost every palate.
If you are looking to network, team build or thank a client in a casual setting, a pizza-themed event could be a smart—and delicious—option. But it’s time to upgrade your in-office, paper-plate, break-room pizza party. And you’ll find no shortage of pizza-centric events on Kapow’s marketplace—from multi-course pizza dinners to hands-on dough-tossing and pizza-building adventures. Here’s a dozen from a long list of our favorites.
