The history of cheese is full of holes, but it’s interesting in its own whey. And a grate way to use cheese is of course on pizza. 🙂 Welcome to this edition of cooking with Liquid. 😀
DIY pizza is always fun, especially when you have guests over. So today I’d like to share how to create your own 12 inch pizza in about 15 minutes, for only $4. The secret is to buy a pizza kit that comes with a crust and tomato paste so we don’t have to make our own dough and sauce from scratch. 🙂 If you don’t know where to buy a pizza kit I’ll leave some details about that later in the post.
Easy Pizza Recipe 🍕 (serves 2 people)
- 1 pizza crust and tomato sauce package
- Spread tomato sauce evenly on the pizza crust
- Slice toppings and place onto the pizza (you could also grate the cheese instead)
- Bake for 10 minutes in a preheated oven at 400°F.
Eh Voila! It’s done. The medium size pizza is ready to eat. Just slice and serve. 🍕
The best part is you can control the toppings and put anything you want on it. Have fun. 🙂
Pizza kits can be found in stores like Walmart, Loblaws, and Costco. The package I used for this recipe was from Costco. For $8.49 it comes with 4 pizza crusts and 4 tomato sauce packets. That’s $2.12 per pizza. I like how the pizza crust is already cooked so it won’t taste doughy even if you under-cook it.
The piece of cheese I used cost about $1 from a larger block. The combined mushrooms and sausage cost is roughly $0.90 for the portions used. So overall the pizza cost about $4 to make. Receipt is below. (click to enlarge)
Making your own pizza can be really fun, but it can be difficult to do for those who do not have opposable thumbs so if you are a cat and reading this blog here’s a tutorial just for you. 😉
