Some of you have this funny impression of me as being this super organized chick with everything figured out. That is hilarious to me! It couldn’t be further from the truth. I fly by the seat of my pants most days, just praying that things get done. Today was no different.
My oldest daughter was trying to be helpful by playing with the baby this morning so I could sleep in. While I enjoyed the sleep, and it was well intentioned, 9 AM is just too late for a mom to start her day. Especially when she has 1001 things to do!
After running errands and hitting Publix, I didn’t get home until almost 2PM! I asked my son what he thought a good weekly meal deal would be. Yep, I still had no clue. He said, “I don’t know, I want pizza.” Out of the mouths of babes! Pizza it is. I haven’t made that for you guys yet. So, I was off to catch up on blogging, housework, gardening, play time and then cooking.
What’s that?? Aren’t I exhausted?? I wish! I still need to finish typing this up and clean up before I go to bed. At least I got to sleep in this morning! A girl needs her beauty sleep!
So, I have a challenge for you. I bet that you could make this pizza in the time that it would take you to order and wait for delivery. Any more it is 30-45 minutes. From start to finish you could have a fresh homemade pizza in that time! You will have a meal with pizza and salad for $2.07/per person with plenty of groceries left over!
Here is how to do it!
- 1 pkg quick rise dry yeast or (1 TBSP)
- 1 cup lukewarm water
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil
- 1 Tbsp. Honey (you can substitute sugar)
- 2 ½ cup flour
- 1 tsp. garlic salt
- ¼ tsp. onion powder
- ¼ tsp. oregano
- Pizza sauce
Allow pizza to sit while the oven preheats to 450 degrees.
Here is this weeks meal deal. These are the prices you will pay this week at Publix. You can make this dish cheaper with ingredients from your stockpile or another store.

Looks are deceiving because you will have enough groceries to make 3 pizzas. If each pizza serves 4, you are looking at $0.69/serving. What a super party idea for kids. Let them make their own pizzas. For $0.69/person how can you go wrong??
