The holiday season is the time for entertaining friends and family. We love having holiday parties, and one of our favorite things to make is a charcuterie board. Everybody loves the variety of creamy cheeses, smoky meats, and salty crackers.

We like to mix it up and add plenty of texture and mix sweet fruit with salty nuts to create a fun snacking experience. We even started tailoring our charcuterie boards to deconstruct our favorite food, pizza, and we came up with a pizza charcuterie board perfect for treats like homemade pizza toast.

If you are looking for a fun way to feed your hungry guests, try making a pizza charcuterie board this holiday season. And if you have friends who love everything charcuterie consider the gift of a personalized charcuterie board.

We’ve written previously about a custom engraved pizza peel, but your guests would rarely get to see that unless you hung it on your wall or something. Having a personalized pizza charcuterie board to complement your cool pizza sign on the wall puts the memento front and center.

The best way to make a charcuterie board is, however you like it. Your board will be unique to you and the flavors and textures that you like. Plus, of course, take into consideration your guests.

The beautiful thing about a charcuterie board is you can make it however you want. However, there are a few things to keep in mind to make the best board.

First, decide if it fits an appetizer or a meal so you know how much to make. Second, keep the meats thinly sliced, and the cheese will be slightly thicker.

A good rule of thumb is to estimate 3 ounces of meat and 3 ounces of cheese per person if it’s an appetizer. Then, make sure to have lots of extras like olives, nuts, dried fruit, crackers, spread, pickles, etc.

The main thing is to have fun with your board and get creative.
