Pizza is the perfect picnic food!

Updated: a day ago

P I C N I C, a lovely word that when you hear it your mind automatically floods with joyful thoughts: a checkered blanket, a straw woven basket, sandwiches, chocolate covered strawberries, friends, and romance. While all so wonderful, classic picnic items can be time consuming so don’t be afraid to think “inside the box” and bring along your favorite DEE’S pizza to your next spur of the moment outdoor casual feast. In fact, pizza is the perfect picnic food─easy to transport and no utensils are required!

Picnics can be held in more than just the simple grass field. You can have a picnic on the beach, in your backyard, on your terrace, your living room floor, in a park, on a dock, or on a boat─the picnic location possibilities are endless! Picnic by yourself, with your family members, or invite your friends to a socially distant group picnic. We suggest picking up a pizza or two and perhaps pairing it with a fresh salad, and some of our signature chocolate chip cookies.

First time picnicking? No problem! Here are the top tips to bring along to help make your picnic experience relaxing and fun: Bug spray, sunscreen, mesh covers to lay over food, corkscrew, paper towel roll (lose napkins tend to go a fly), waterproof lined blanket (helpful with damp grass), paper plates and cups (eco-friendly makes it an even greener day), a pillow or two to prop up against, wet wipes and hand sanitizer, and garbage/recycling bags.

August is the perfect time! Take your pizza to a place it’s never been before...Rockaway beach at twilight, perhaps? It’s easy to get creative! With the long hours of daylight and an abundance of fresh mint for’s the perfect time of year to plan a weekly picnic. Ultimate perk, picnics get the pandemic seal of approval, with gathering in the great outdoors and using separate blankets for social distancing.
