You’re having a homemade pizza party. You’ve invited your family members and some friends you’ve met since moving to your new neighborhood. The folks across the street are Jewish, and while you know they keep Kosher, you’re not completely sure what that means. You really want to invite them to your pizza party, but aren’t sure how to make a Kosher pizza. Is there a way this scenario can work for everyone involve?
Rest assured, there is a way. And it’s a lot easier than you may think. It’s not always easy to find or store the ingredients used in making a delicious, hot Kosher pizza, so since you’re not a Kosher Jew yourself, that might not be the best option. This doesn’t mean you can’t invite your new friends, however.
Find the phone number to your nearest Kosher pizza parlor. Explain to them what you plan to do, and ask them to sell you a Kosher pizza that will meet the dietary and religious needs of your new friends.
Don’t lose sleep over timing the delivery or pickup of your Kosher pizza with the timer on your oven. Instead, have a big salad ready to toss, and then serve that while your homemade pizzas bake, and someone picks up or arranges for delivery of the Kosher pizza.
Will your Jewish friends feel peculiar for eating a different pizza than the rest of the gang? Of course not. And it provides an excellent way to get to know them better, as they can share what eating Kosher means to them.
