Homemade Pizza

We started to order a pizza tonight from our favorite restaurant, but after figuring out delivery costs, I decided it was much more economical to make our own.

I made homemade dough using my amazing Cuisinart Food Processor. This is probably one of my favorite kitchen tools right now. I made a homemade yeast dough, and boy did it turn out well. I am always afraid of making yeast doughs without using my bread maker, but this turned out perfect.
While the dough was rising, I got the rest of the toppings ready. I made our sauce using, tomato paste, tomato sauce, freshly minced garlic and onions, basil, oregano, Italian seasoning, a little sugar and a pinch of salt.

We chopped and cooked up our favorite toppings, and in less than the time it would take for delivery to arrive, we had two fantastic pizzas! Two large pizzas cost us less than $10 to make including all the toppings and ingredients. We couldn't get one large single topping pizza delivered for that price.

It often seems like "fast" food is faster, but it really isn't. We got super fresh ingredients, and a pizza made just the way we wanted it in less time for a lot less money. Being frugal isn't so bad after all ~lol~
