Pizza Party on a Budget, Anyone?

I remember the days when families could still afford to eat out or order for delivery. Parents who belong to middle class like us could still spare a few bucks for this before. 

Let's face it! Nowadays, we can't do it often. We must be practical especially in times like this that prices of commodities are very high. 
Eating out is one of the best family activities for Pinoys. Instead of doing this in fancy restaurants, my hubby and I choose to do food trips at home. Eating itself is a bonding moment for us already. It is more special when we prepare the food together with our kids. It makes us closer and happier as a family while giving our kids a learning experience too. 

One of the favorite foods that we make is Pizza.  It is very fun and easy to make, there is no right or wrong, and you can make lots of variations. 

I would like to share with you our very tasty and easy to make Homemade Pizza.


115 g pizza sauce--- (P17.00)

200 grams tomato sauce--- (P16.75)
250 grams bacon--- (P88.00)
250 grams CDO Spiced Ham--- (P46.00)

3 pcs. big white onions--- (P18.00)
1 big bar Eden Cheese--- (P100.25)

2 pcs. big green bell peppers--- (P17.85)
1 medium can Dole Pineapple Tidbits--- (P48.25)

1  can (400 grams) sliced button mushrooms--- (P42.25)   
3 big packs Gardenia White Bread--- (P62.00 per pack x 3 = P186.00)

 Total Cost of Ingredients: P580.35

Note: The prices above are based on what is reflected on our receipt last February 24, 2013. Prices on other stores may vary. 
 You may use ready made pizza crust instead of white bread but it costs more expensive. The price of 2 packs of white bread is equal to 1 piece medium size pizza crust.


Preparation and cooking time: 45 minutes to 1 hour

1. Slice all the ingredients into thin and small pieces then mix the two sauces.

2. Preheat the oven toaster for 5 minutes.

 3. Spoon on the sauce mixture and spread it evenly on the bread or crust. Sprinkle with grated cheese and place all the toppings. Top again with cheese. Make sure that you don't put too much toppings that may cause the bread or crust to sink.

4. Bake them for about  5-7 minutes or until the crust is brown and the cheese is golden.

Yield: 45-48 pieces (white bread) or 4-5 medium size pizza (pizza crust)

It's up to you if you want to use white bread or ready made pizza crust.

Imagine, this pizza recipe can feed more than 20 people at P500 + only!  

For a very small family like us, we can cook pizza using the above mentioned ingredients for two to three days depending on the frequency and amount that we wish to make. 

You'll be surprised when you taste these pizzas! Believe me, they taste like Greenwich Special!
