How to keep pizzas warm for 2-3 hours outdoors

it's an outdoor party. at evening around 6-ish. i'll pick up pizzas in the afternoon (have this papa johns deal card which allows me one free pizza for one purchased. catch is i have to pick it up hence no home delivery)
anyways if i pick them up in the afternoon, can i keep them in my oven at the lowest setting and bring them out the time of the party? party is in my backyard. will they dry out in the oven?
i know the best case scenario is have them delivered at the very last minute. but I'm just checking if i have other options

  • Leave them on the counter. Heat them in the oven 10 minutes before serving.

  • Can you have someone pick them up either right before the party starts or during the party?

  • You can put a dish with water in the oven to prevent them from drying out.

  • No they will dry out and become nasty

  • Ask them to not cook it for the last 3-4 minutes, then heat your oven to 425 and use a pizza stone for about 5 minutes.
