How to Make a Perfect Pizza Gift Basket | Fundraiser Basket Ideas | Creative Gift Ideas | DIY Gift Baskets | Kids' Gift Baskets

Really, the best thing about making a pizza gift basket is how truly flexible it is as a gift!  You can hugely vary price range, contents and occasions!  Obviously, it would make a fantastic wedding gift idea, but it also works as a gift idea for men, a housewarming gift, a graduation gift, a gift for a 20-something, really a gift for anyone.

Given that I mostly write about wedding gifts and great ways to make registry gifts more creative, that is how I will start, but definitely feel free to modify however you see fit. And while you’re at it, check out this list of stuff to NOT put in a gift basket

Step #1 – Check the Registry

This snazzy Apron would be a fantastic addition to any pizza gift bsaket.

If you have a pizza pan or stone to work with, you can use that as the base and stack things on top, then wrap with cellophane.  You could also pile things into a mixing bowl.  Alternatively, pick up a gift bag, but make sure that it will be able to hold the weight of the items you purchase.

Step #2 – Hit the Grocery Store

After selecting a few of the items in that list off of the registry, you’ll want to take a stroll through your local grocery store or Italian specialty store.  The sky is the limit for things that you add, but here are several suggestions.

  • Pizza Yeast – Doesn’t require proofing, so makes dinner time a lot faster!
  • Anchovies
  • Olives
  • Tomato Sauce/Pizza Sauce – crucial ingredient!
  • Wine – always wine!
  • Alfredo Sauce
  • Corn Meal – to sprinkle on the pan or stone to avoid sticking
  • Recipe for an alternative crust, such as cauliflower
  • Olive Oil
  • Dried Spices – red pepper flakes, Italian mix, oregano, basil, garlic
  • Pizza Crust Mix – you can even get gluten free ones
  • Gift Card for Take Out Pizza – a date night and a joke to add in!
  • Sundried Tomatoes
  • Artichokes
  • Pizza Cookbook
  • Bar(s) of Chocolate for Dessert
  • Shelf Stable Sausages
  • Grocery Store Gift Certificate for fresh stuff like cheese
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle action figure – seriously, do it.
  • Candles and Matches

We have a pizza stone and absolutely love it.  Having corn meal to sprinkle on the stone to avoid sticking is key!

Don’t forget that they may not get a chance to eat these things right away, so it is best to avoid adding ingredients that may go bad in the meantime.  If you are giving the gift as a birthday present, then fresh foods may work just fine.

Step #3 – Wrap and Deliver

Try not to steal any of the delicious things you just bought, prior to giving it to your recipient(s).  That would be mean. Grab a fun basket, large bin, or even just use your mixing bowls to hold everything. Use tissue paper, clear wrap, and some bows to make it fun!

What’s your favorite pizza ever?  I love Underworld from Hell Pizza, or the BBQ Salmon Alfredo that my spouse makes.
