Costing out a batch of pizza dough. Crust is flour .16, yeast .015 cents. Water, salt, too small to cost, and 2 teaspoons of olive oil I'm guessing to be .05. Total cost. .22. Add 1/5 of a pizza sauce can at a dollar ( dollar store) .20, and a cup of cheese 🧀.50. .92.
When doing your kitchen management, set aside things in a freezer bag that go on your pizza. Put veggies on one bag and cooked meat in another. (Or separate bags. ). For very little money you can feed your family their most favorite meal for next to nothing
Pepperoni is a dollar at the dollar store for the same brand that is 1.69 at Winco, Probably more at other stores. You can a,si add veggies that you have or ham cubes, or canned, drained diced tomatoes, sausage, olives ( sliced olives are cheapest at winco .58.
You can use bits of things saved and cover a pizza for little money.
Granddaughter loves to help, of course, the pepperoni just might be placed in the shape of a happy face? LOL.
Actual time making bread dough is about ten minutes tops. It takes a standing time in between the actual time of making dough and patting or rolling it into the pan or into a circle of you have a pizza stone.
