Birthday Parties

Plum Tomato Birthday PartiesBailey Pizza Party

Come and experience what it’s like to be one of our pizza chef’s for the day by joining us for one of our famous “Make Your Own Pizza” parties! Our staff will teach your child and birthday party guests the methods for making a pizza, Plum Tomato style!

Children will come into our open kitchen and perform all of the steps for making a magnificent pizza, but obviously, the best part is enjoying the masterpiece that they have created. Parties are held only at our Colchester location.

 Birthday Party FAQ’s

When do birthday parties take place?
Make your Own Pizza Birthday parties are hosted on Saturday and Sunday mornings at 10:00am. They last approximately 1.5 to 2 hours.

What is the minimum age to participate?
All children should be five years of age or older. Special exceptions may be made for siblings or special guests.

How much does the party cost and what is included?
The cost of the party is $18.00 plus tax. A 25% gratuity will be added. This price includes 2-3 party hosts, dining room/kitchen rental from 10-11 (from 11-12 the dining room is open to our customers), a personal pizza (cheese, pepperoni, and one topping choice of the birthday child), fountain beverages with refills, and all utensils needed for dining as well as pizza boxes to go.

How many children are allowed to attend?
We encourage a minimum of 10 and maximum of 16 children to make their own pizza.

How does the party work?
Guests arrive and gather at the party table.
A party host will begin by introducing themselves to the children, telling them about how we make pizza at Plum Tomato, and mentioning some important rules to follow. Drinks are presented to the children at this time (at the parent’s discretion).

Next, all of the children are led by the birthday boy/girl to our hand sink, where they wash their hands. Our party host is there to assist them as well as take down their names and drink orders.

Children then enter the kitchen where they are given a dough ball. They are instructed to pound the dough using a “finger-tip and drum” method. They then are taught how to stretch and toss their dough. After their dough is the appropriate size, they move to the next station where they will put their toppings on the pizza. Our staff will closely monitor the amount of sauce and cheese the children put on their pizza. The pizza is then cooked in our brick oven which usually takes anywhere from 3 to 5 minutes. Children are allowed to watch their pizza cook. When the pizza is done, our staff will cut the pizza and escort the child back to the table with their pizza and drink.

When the children are done eating, our staff will provide boxes for leftovers if needed. Parents are encouraged to open presents and eat cake at this time.

*** For safety reasons, we ask that all children participating in pizza making are at least five years of age. Children should wear closed-toed, flat shoes. Children with long hair should wear it tied back. Please – no costumes or clothing that might interfere with the safety of your child’s experience.

What should I bring?
Birthday party parents are welcome to bring a cake and candles. We will provide needed utensils for cake.
Birthday party parents are welcome to bring an activity for children to do while guests are arriving. PLEASE – no glitter, glue, paint, confetti, pinatas, or chalk – anything that would be unusually messy/difficult to clean.
