Pizza (Saving while making dough)

I love pizza! And it’s cheap! Ever wonder why there are so many pizza restaurants? I usually use the same dough recipe, which takes about a day. I was going to write a complete post about making pizza dough and sauce, but why do the parts that I can get for free? Hey I like free too.

I scoured the Internet for a recipe and method that would easily describe the hardest part, making dough. You can search yourself. On first read, many of the recipes seem a little dubious, but here’s a gem from a nice little blog that I can relate to called Fun Foods on a Budget. Stephanie does a quick and easy dough that almost anyone can make. Why bother with tons of work? Check it out (link). Divide the dough in half and make 2 pizzas, Half bake one and freeze it for later.

Need a quick and easy sauce from our grocery list try:

Pizza Sauce

1 Can 6 in 1 Ground Tomato
2 teaspoon Sugar
½ Onion Finely Chopped
3-5 Cloves of Garlic
1 Tablespoon Olive oil
1 teaspoon Basil
Salt and Pepper to taste

Cook this sauce before you make the dough in the recipe above to allow time for the sauce to cool.
1. Heat a dry sauce pan on medium heat
2. Add Oil, Onion, and Garlic
3. Cook until translucent maybe a little brown
4. Add 6 in1 Ground Tomato
5. Stir in Basil and Sugar
6. Bring to a simmer
7. Reduce heat and allow to cool
Now follow the pizza crust recipe. If you have too much sauce, save it for later or make more pizza.

Doing the math:

This is at least 2 to 3 servings per pizza, bringing the cost down to under $1.50 per serving. At these prices, you can throw in a salad. Enjoy! Sphere: Related Content
