I don’t think of myself as a cheap person. I’ll gladly buy a bag of sea salt for $8, a good bottle of olive oil for $20 or more. I’m not a nitpicker about splitting a check when out to eat with friends. But we’ve had pizza delivered a couple of times in the last few weeks, just for two of us. And it was $20+ for a medium pizza. When did regular ol’ pizza get so damn expensive?
Keep pizza dough around, or pick some up at your local market and you’ll be spending a whole lot less than $20 for pizza. Dinner in a flash: Trader Joe’s pizza dough, Bionaturae tomato, Columbus Salame Toscano, sliced poblanos, red onion, grated mozzarella and Beecher’s Flagship. Baked on a pizza stone at 475F for about 12 minutes.
