Let's examine the cost of homemade pizza. Is it cheaper to make homemade pizza?
I have been wondering if it is cheaper for me to make homemade pizzas but of course it is healthier to make pizza at home. Of course it is cheaper than delivery or take out but homemade vs. frozen. So I finally did the calculations.
My total then for two large pizzas with leftovers for lunch the next day is $9.60. Frozen pizzas from the store are smaller and it would take three to feed us. On sale the cheapest large frozen pizzas are 3.99. So three frozen would cost me $11.97. So indeed it is cheaper for me to make them at home and probably far better for us.
Friday nights are often pizza night in our house as long as it is not summer. I rarely use our oven in summer.
Tomorrow I will share my pizza crust recipe.Update 9/24/2015 Food prices have risen sharply but if you buy your supplies like flour on yearly sales cycles you will still be able to make a healthier frugal pizza at home.
