Homemade frozen pizza
Whew... I survived 2 birthdays in one week! it was a bit busy and heavy on the budget, but you only get one birthday a year right! And the best part was Bacon Jr and Little boy bacon both enjoyed their birthdays and I didn't break my budget even with eating out twice in one week (all from good planning!)
For little boy bacon's trip out to eat we decided to make it a lunch adventure instead of dinner. The place he wanted to go was a bit more expensive so going for lunch let us use the lunch menu at cheaper prices. Also a bonus for Mr & Ma Bacon, it wasn't so busy there.
For dinner we decided to make homemade pizza on the grill! Mr. Bacon got a pizza stone for fathers day and we thought it would be a great day to finally try it out. Who doesn't like homemade pizza!?!
Every time I mention to someone we're making homemade pizza I get the same response " I LOVE homemade pizza, but it takes so long to make. I end up making a frozen one instead." I used to say the same thing. I would make my pizza crust dough in the bread maker and it would take 1.5hrs to just make dough! By the time I decided on making pizza for dinner it was too late to start it all up. I did some digging and found a great dough crust recipe that only takes 10 minutes to make, add toppings and put in the oven and 20min later you have fresh homemade pizza! This recipe can also be made into freezer pizzas!
