I found this recipe in the NY Times, and it looks so simple, cheap, and good. You make your own pizza dough and top it with potatoes, rosemary, and garlic. It looks so yummy!

And what could be cheaper than making your own dough?

And here's another one with goat cheese. My mouth is watering!

Great ideas! No need to overload with pepperoni and tons of mozza

Loved the dough recipe, too, - can ditch the breadmaker and all that power it drains while the dough is raising!

Thanks WWW

Here is another recipe for the dough and it is simple and it is pretty good. No kneading. I might try adding whole wheat flour the next time I make it less cheese and more vegetables but no potatoes. Strach on top of starch does not sound healthy to me, lol.

FWIW, I used a Kill-a-watt to measure the power usage of a breadmaker. It is absolutely minimal. I was QUITE surprised. DW makes all our bread, pizza crusts, rolls, biscuits, brioche, etc.. THe stuff is TOO good and I've put on a few pounds.

Probably not cheaper, just more convenient and also suitable for sandwich wraps . .

I've been making my own dough that way for years. Get the instant yeast then you can combine it in with the dry ingredients.

Oh and get the bread flower that isn't bleached or bromated if you care about your health!



or if you want to splurge:

A yummy pizza to try....terriyaki chicken with cherries...i know sounds horrible, but is awesome, our three girls request this every week.
We too make our own dough. Making different kind of pizza's is a great way to get the kids to try new things.

Or buy a large pizza for $5 already made. Unless you buy things wholesale you are unlikely to beat the sale prices on pizza at the pizza shops.

Yuck, frozen pizzas taste awful, it's not even worth a penny. Not to mention it's loaded with processed crap and is unnecessarily high in sodium. Nutrition and taste wise, you'll get a better bang for your buck by making it from scratch. Plus, if you buy the ingredients in bulk you'll be able to make multiple pizzas which means the cost per pizza is low.
