You all know I like to save money and homemade pizza can be a delicious money savings alternative to ordering out, but only if have the right ingredients on hand. We had this pizza for dinner last night and it was extraordinary!
What I used for 1 large pizza (made on a Pampered Chef round stone)… 2 packages Jiffy pizza crust $1.20 total, leftover spaghetti sauce, Mozzarella cheese scored for 50 cents, canned mushrooms for about 60 cents, and leftover pepperoni. I’m not including the cost of the leftover items, because I was just using them up so they wouldn’t be wasted. So… this huge pizza was made for about $2.30 and fed the whole family. I made half of the pizza with just cheese and pepperoni for the kids.
Do you have a grocery store that sells marked down veggies? We have a local grocery store that I can always count on for marked down produce. Last week I scored big: a huge bag of tomatoes, peppers, and jalapeños that were perfectly useable for just 88 cents! I didn’t weigh the bag, but it was easily 4-5 pounds. I also picked up a 4 pack of organic tomatoes for 88 cents, a bag of broccoli and green onions, also 88 cents, and a 3 pound bag of apples for 99 cents. I plan to go there weekly just for the reduced produce selection. At the store I shop at, the best time shop for reduced is in the morning.
