Homemade Pizza

I have found a great economical and delicious way to make pizza! My family loves pizza, so we have it about every two or three weeks. At first, we were using store bought crusts and pizza sauce, but now I have learned to make our pizza from scratch. If you make pizza from scratch, you save money by not using store bought crusts and sauces .This is how I do it:

1. I make the hot roll mix from my Make-A-Mix book. This is a dry mix that uses a 5 lb. bag of flour. You will have a lot of hot roll mix to store in your cupboard and use next time.

2. Make the dough by using the pizza crust recipe in your Make-A-Mix book.

3. In the Super Baby Food book, there is a list of recipes. One recipe is for economical pizza sauce. This recipe costs pennies to make and saves money instead of buying pizza sauce already prepared at the store. The recipe calls for a 15 oz can of tomato sauce and a 6 oz can of tomato paste. I buy generic of both for a total of only $.80! You then make a mix of spices that you probably already have in your cupboard.

Homemade pizza can be made for pennies on the dollar. Try it and see for yourself!

Does anyone else make their own mixes?



  1. Great recipes ladies! Check out my blog for beauty tips, reviews, and deals!

  2. Best wishes on your new blog! Homemade crust is great to freeze also. Just double your recipe, line extra pizza pan with wax paper or parchment and form crust on top. After it freezes you can peel it off and store in a freezer bag for the next time you need to whip up dinner in a hurry. I love pizza!

  3. I like your new blog. Good luck with it.
