We love pizza! This is our 3rd pizza dough variation on 2frugalfoodies.com…. and the first with a homemade tomoto sauce (totally worth it). The simple pizza dough went perfectly with the simple topping of artichoke hearts and fresh mozzarella cheese.
1 batch neapolitan pizza dough $0.39
1/2 bag frozen artichoke hearts $1.20
1 (16 oz) roll low-moisture mozzarella cheese $4.29
1 batch homemade tomato sauce $1.80
4 tablespoons olive oil, divided $0.40
1 dash sea salt (coarse or ground) $free-ish
1 dash ground black pepper $free-ish
Total Cost = $8.08
Sprinkle the prepared pan of pizza dough with about 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Spread oil around to evenly cover. Spread the homemade tomato sauce over the dough.
Put the artichokes in a small bowl, cover with the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and a dash of salt and pepper. Set aside.
Slice the mozzarella to make discs that are about 1/4″ thick.
Scatter the mozzarella slices and the artichokes over the pizza in a random fashion. Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until the crust is browning, the cheese is bubbly and the artichokes are soft and fragrant.
