Wednesday Whip-Ups ::: Pillsbury Pizza

Hello and welcome to my first 'Wednesday Whip-Ups'!

Meals can be so expensive these days. Many families are trying to eat at home lately in order to save money, but even then it can be quite costly. I try to plan our meals around what is on sale each week, so every Wednesday I'm going to feature a recipe or meal that can be concocted mainly from sale items, and I'm inviting you to do the same.

Wanna' share a recipe or meal idea? Here are the rules:

There is no price limit to your recipe, but the bulk of the ingredients must be on sale. (I'm not going to go as far as saying every spice you use must be 1/2 off or anything, but you know what I mean :D)

Your recipe can be anything - a dessert, breakfast, snack, dinner, whatever!

If you can, please share with us a.) where the ingredients can be found on sale, b.) if there are any coupons that go along with the ingredients, and c.) the recipe!

My meal for this week is really simple and cheap!

Pillsbury Pizza and Salad
INGREDIENTS (all can be found on sale at Publix this week!) (view coupon match-ups HERE & HERE)

1 Can Pillsbury Refrigerated Pizza Crust ($1.66 w/o coupon)
1 tbsp Dry Basil Leaves
1/2 Cup Ragu Tomato Pasta Sauce ($1.64/jar w/o coupon)
1/3 Cup Kraft Shredded Parmesan Cheese ($1.66/bag)
1 Cup Kraft Shreddd Monterey Jack Cheese ($1.66/bag)
2 Cups Kraft Mozzarella Cheese ($1.66/bag)

Et Tu Spinach Salad Kit ($1.25)


If using classic crust: Heat oven to 425°F. Spray or grease 12-inch pizza pan or 13x9-inch pan. Unroll dough in pan. Starting at center, press out dough to edge of pan. If using thin crust: Heat oven to 400°F. Spray or grease 15x10-inch or larger dark or nonstick cookie sheet. Unroll dough on cookie sheet. Starting at center, press dough into 15x10-inch rectangle.

Sprinkle dough with Parmesan cheese and basil. Top with provolone, Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses. Drop pasta sauce by spoonfuls over cheese.

Bake classic crust 12 to 18 minutes, thin crust 10 to 14 minutes, or until crust is deep golden brown. Cut into 4 servings. Serve with salad.
