It's Pizza Time!

Nothing is tastier (and cheaper) than a homemade pizza.  Assuming you already have some olive oil and flour at home you can make your own pizza for about $10.  Of course your cost will depend on how many ingredients you use, where you buy them, and their quality.

Overall, pizza is amazingly easy to make.  Just mix up a quick dough, let it proof for about 45 minutes and then roll out the dough and throw on some toppings.  I like to crank up the oven to about 450 for the first 10 minutes so the crust gets the lift and color it needs before lowering it to around 375 for the remaining 5-7 minutes.  Also, preheating a pizza stone is key to a great, golden crust.

For my pizza I chose simple toppings of mozzarella, mushrooms, onions, and pepperoni but again, the sky is the limit.  Happy pizza eating! Don't be afraid to get creative.
