Homemade Pizza

Well, it’s halfway homemade at least. We buy premade pizza dough at the store, stretch it and let it rise a bit at home, then cover it with our own toppings. The dough costs five dollars, which is about a third of the prize of a delivered pizza. We always have spaghetti sauce and cheese on hand, and I often try to stock pineapple and olives for pizza making occasions. Another great pizza style to try is a greek pizza, with feta, olives again, and basil if you have it. You can even make a super cheap pizza out of what seems like a bare cupboard. If you onions and oil just sauté them up with a little salt until they are caramelized. It makes for a delicious pizza topping. No one even has to know you’re skimping, it tastes that good.

Here is last night’s pizza. We had it with a fresh garden salad and homemade vinaigrette dressing.
