Succulent Sundays: Pizza, Pizza! A Budget Friendly Recipe

If you love pizza as much as I do: This post is for you!

Farmer's Market Pizza

I love City Market. It’s a great way to find fresh, locally grown and seasonally appropriate produce and to connect with farmers in the area. Even though it’s not peak season yet, there are still a lot of great finds at the farmer’s market. I absolutely love Al Habashi Market. They’re my first choice when it comes to purchasing spices and my weekly indulgence of naan flat bread (which is what I used for the crust of the pizza). Last week I purchased some red bell peppers, spinach, cilantro, and cherry tomatoes from various vendors around the market all of which I incorporated into this delicious pizza. All in all this large, delicious pie came in at under $4.00.

To replicate this recipe you’ll need:

Farmer's Market Pizza

  • 1 1.5 c shredded cheese
  • Pasta sauce (to taste)
  • Handful of Spinach (chopped)
  • Cilantro (to taste)
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 4 cherry tomatoes
  • Naan flatbread

Pre-heat your oven to 325 degrees. Place the naan flatbread onto a baking sheet. If you’re using a thin piece of naan, I would suggest using two pieces with a little bit of cheese (which will act as glue) in between.

Spread the pasta sauce onto the crust.

Mad About It Monday: Oh It Burns!

Allow me to introduce myself: Hi, I’m an ordinary blogger and I love pizza.

We eat pizza at least once every other week. Why? Because it’s delicious.

Here are some of my favorites:

Costco sells their ridiculously large, absurdly amazing, whole pizzas for just under $10.

My dad introduced me to the glory that is Red Baron pizza a few years ago. At just under $3.50 per pizza, it’s a great (and inexpensive) way to enjoy a pizza night at home.

The Dish is a restaurant just outside Kansas City that serves Chicago style pizza and, trust me when I say that it is absolutely amazing.

By now you might be A) salivating and B) wondering why I’m posting things that I love on a “Mad About It Monday”. There is almost nothing, I repeat, almost nothing, worse than pizza burn on the roof of your mouth. The burning sucks. It’s horrible and I hate it. Pizza burn = the devil.

So that’s it, my MAM for this week is pizza burn.
