What's cookin' tonight?

I thought I'd try to tell you all what I was having for dinner...and how we eat good...for cheap! My friend Lisa posted some yummy pictures of grilled pizza they had one night.  I got the recipe...and found out how CHEAP it is!  This would be GREAT for entertaining as well!  We will have some major leftovers!

How much it cost(based on what the hubby and i are using):
Flour: 4 cups...way under $1
Yeast: $.28
Green Pepper: $.77
Pepperoni(At kroger): $1.25
Fresh Mozarella: $6
Pineapple: $1.00(canned)
Tomatoes: $2...$1.28/lb

TOTAL: $9.50 for FOUR pizzas!

Here's how:

Make the flatbread using the recipe below. After you make the flatbread, brush with olive oil and put on the grill. Cook one side then take off the grill and put toppings on the grilled side. I just use tomato sauce with some garlic and herbs for the sauce then add whatever toppings you want (I recommend cooking things like peppers and onions on the grill first b/c the toppings only get heated on the grill and that leaves them still a little raw). I like to use fresh mozzerella too. After putting on your toppings, take back outside and now the raw side goes on the grill. As for times and all that I'm not sure. Surprisingly, we have never had trouble with the dough sticking! This is really super easy to do and a good cheap way to entertain too!

1 1/2 cups warm water
1/2 teaspoon dry yeast
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for brushing
Salt and pepper


Mix water and yeast and let stand 15 minutes. Gradually pour in 2 cups of the flour and incorporate. Mix for about 1 minute to form a sponge. Let stand, covered for at least 1 hour up to 2 hours to create the sponge.

Put sponge in the bowl of an electric mixer. Using the dough hook, add flour 1/2 cup at a time to form dough. Remove from bowl and knead. Place in a clean oiled bowl and let rise, slowly, about 1 hour. Divide dough into 4 balls. Roll out into 6-inch circles.

Heat grill to high. Brush the dough with olive oil and season with pepper. Grill the bread for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes on each side. Remove from the grill and brush with more olive oil.

Thanks Lisa!
