We all know pizza is delicious, right? Right. Another thing we know is that take out pizza is both expensive and excessively unhealthy. Let’s say that you order an ordinary pizza from a pizza chain that will remain unnamed. For starters it costs around $11.00 just for the pizza, that’s not including if you get a couple of two liters of soda or an order of breadsticks. Let’s say you add those things. That’s going to cost you a total of $19.61 and that’s before you tip the delivery boy. Let’s say you do that once a week. That’s $1,019.72 per year. Cut that out and you can say hello to some extra money (you could put it towards the cost of tuition, perhaps?)
Don’t even get me started on the nutrition! Just your basic pepperoni pizza is going to cost you about 310 calories per slice. Per slice! Who in their right mind stops at one slice when confronted with a large pizza? and if you get a specialty pizza with any type of fancy sauce, go ahead and add a whole bunch of calories to that.
So, clearly there must be a better solution. Surprise! I have one and It’s so easy you could even turn it into a fun family activity with everyone making their pizza exactly how they like it.
What you’ll need:
1 tube refrigerated biscuits
1 bottle spaghetti sauce (or homemade if you prefer)
cheese to taste
Pepperoni, olives, mushrooms, canadian bacon, pineapple or any other toppings your family likes.
Open the tube of biscuits and separate them giving each pizza two biscuits. Preheat the oven to the temperature specified on the package. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray and use your hands to warm up the dough and spread them into appropriate personal pizza shapes. Spread each pizza with about a tablespoon of sauce (or more if you prefer.) The next part is where you let your creativity flow. Add the toppings that you like and put them in the oven according the directions on the package. Then, Voila! Your pizzas are done. This is especially good with a lettuce salad and the dressing of your choice.
As you can see, I take the term “recipe” rather loosely. Cooking should be fun! I like to cook and adjust the recipe as I go depending on how I think my family will like it. So check back later for more of my “recipes.”
