    Do you enjoy entertaining at home? Whether it’s a quick barbecue during the summer months, a warming roast in the winter or a potluck dinner, sharing a meal in your home with friends is always an enjoyable experience.

    However, if you like to have people over regularly you may be in need of some fresh cooking ideas to wow your guests with.

    Dating all the way back to the 16th century, the humble but tantalising pizza still enjoys immense popularity and is bound to be a hit with your dinner party.

    If you want to really impress your friends, you might want to consider investing in a wood burning pizza oven - there are some great DIY options available for a cheaper alternative to store-bought choices.

    As a part of your next garden DIY project why not consider adding a wood fire oven to your outdoor area?

    There are a number of different varieties on the market so before making the financial commitment, make sure you have enough space and the oven you select best suits your needs.

    A courtyard wood fire oven is perfect for smaller outdoor areas while still allowing you to whip up two pizzas at a time for your intimate dinner party.

    A traditional oven is larger in size and is ideal for big social gatherings or family get togethers, cooking up to six pizzas at once. They are also available in a medium size for those who can't quite make up their mind!

    As the name suggests, wood burning pizza ovens use wood as fuel - giving your pizza creations that distinctive smoky and authentic taste.

    The best thing about cooking pizza is that it is easy, fun, sociable and affordable.

    You can put virtually anything on a pizza and it is bound to taste great, but if you are stuck for some ideas you can't go wrong with the following toppings.

    This is one of the most simple and delicious pizzas with the mouth-watering garlic and basil flavours brought to life with zesty tomato.

    Parmesan cheese
    Mozzarella cheese
    Basil leaves
    Extra virgin olive oil
    Tomato base

    Smoked salmon:
    This gourmet pizza combines the delicious flavours of smoked salmon with the saltiness of capers. If you have seafood lovers in your dinner party, this flavour sensation is sure to please the tastebuds.
