We made a great pizza for supper on Saturday Night and most of it was from leftovers but you never would have known it. I think the final cost came in at about $1.50 in new ingredients.
I started out by making a fresh batch of pizza dough, divided it in half and put one dough ball up for later and used one for our pizza. The sauce was a ½ cup of spaghetti sauce and I used ¾ cup of sausage both siphoned off before making our spaghetti last week. I love this budget stretcher.
We also topped it with half a package of pepperoni (50¢) and one cup of grated mozzarella (75¢). Then we finished it off with chopped onions & peppers and sliced olives leftover from Super Bowl nachos as well as four leftover mushrooms from our salad supplies.
The girls and I worked together to prepare it which made for a fun time spent in the kitchen.
It was a delicious meal and certainly healthier and much more affordable than delivery or frozen pizza.
