What do you make when you're low on ingredients and would really love to order out? Pizza! Ours is ready in about the time that it would take to order and pick it up and saves us a bundle on cash and grease.
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Ready in: 40 minutes
Cost: approx. $7.00 (or less depending on toppings)
1 cup of warm water
1 package of active dry yeast ($.50)
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 2/12- 3 cups flour ($.50)
Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add all other ingredients. Stir 20 times to mix. Let rise 20 minutes.
8 oz can tomato sauce ($.50)
1 Tbsp. minced garlic
2 tsp. Italian spice blend
Spread dough thinly on large cookie sheet. Top with sauce, 3 cups mozzarella cheese ($2.99), and additional toppings as desired. Our favorite is mushrooms ($1.00) and sausage ($1.50)
Bake at 450 on lowest rack for 15 minutes or until cheese has melted.
