My friend is doing a Superman themed nursery and her husband's family are huge Marvel Comic fans so I thought it only fitting to use that as part of the theme! I found these great invites online and really had to search to find where to order them from!

|Front door decorations|
|We did the Wishes for Baby game that I actually love because they will have sweet notes from people they love to their baby.|
|We also did the popular notes on diapers game|

We thought about doing super hero themed foods, but then I thought we should go with my friends favorite... PIZZA!
There were so many people willing to help, with a pizza theme it was easy to give assignments and have different people bring pizza, etc.
|Instead of a diaper cake, I made a diaper pizza! I went it with one of our other friends as part of her gift.|
|Of course I had to make pizza dip which she also had me make for her wedding.|
|I had someone make these fresh veggie pizzas. Recipe HERE|
I personally didn't like the recipe below, but I don't like store bought jarred alfredo sauce so that might have something to do with it. However, lots of people asked for the recipe and it was all eaten so other people liked it. And I had a little bit left at home that I put as pizza toppings on a pizza for my kids and they all loved it even with spinach in it! So, there's a recipe my kids will eat at least!
|Pepperoni Puffs, also a new recipe. These are basically popovers with italian seasoning, cheeses, and pepperoni. Recipe HERE|
|Someone made mini Mexican pizzas|
I also made a Four Cheese Pizza Dip but none of us got a picture of it. It was one of those recipes I saw on Facebook that was a video and had to watch it a bunch of times to write the recipe down. It is similar to the Chicken Alfredo Dip with pizza dough around the edges and the dip in the middle. Here it is.
Four Cheese Pizza Dip Recipe
Pizza Dough already prepared rolled into one inch balls and put around the edges of a cast iron skillet, or round baking dish greased.
8 oz. cream cheese
1 c. mozzarella cheese
1/2 c. Parmesan cheese
1/2 c. ricotta cheese
1 T. dried basil
3 cloves minced garlic
1 tsp. ground red pepper
Mix ingredients together and fill in the middle of the pizza dough balls in greased baking dish.
Mix together 4 T. butter, 1 tsp. minced garlic and 1/2 T. parsley and brush dough with mixture using a pastry brush.
Sprinkle additional Parmesan cheese over dough and dip.
Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Broil on high last 2 minutes.
And of course we had fruit pizzas for dessert!
Here is the recipe she used for the cream cheese spread:
Fruit Pizza Spread Recipe
8 oz. cream cheese softened
1/4 c. softened unsalted butter
2 cups powdered sugar
1-2 T. cream or milk
1 tsp. vanilla
Cream the cream cheese until smooth. Add butter and cream together. Add powdered sugar then cream and vanilla beat well.
This S'more Cookie Pizza was a huge hit! It was so good I got the recipe and had John make it the next day! I just bought two pizza boxes from a pizza place for her to put the cookie in.
