Margherita Pizza

ONE OF THE BEST PIZZAS YOU WILL MAKE   I haven’t met many people who say they aren’t fans of pizza and today I’m going to make your mouth water with what I call my Margherita Pizza. There isn’t a gathering that I’ve held or been to where I’ve made this pizza where friends and family are wanting the recipe. Now, they won’t have to ask as my secret Margherita recipe will be shared here today and available forever. What I love about making homemade pizza is that my family can get involved and we all enjoy creating a custom pizza that we will all enjoy. No one says a pizza has to be topped with just mozzarella and pepperoni. Don’t worry if you don’t have round pizza baking sheets or any mad dough throwing pizza skills either. I make my pizza in square pans and cut them into squares and you know what? They taste the same as if it were shaped like a round pizza pie.   Pizza any day   If I do say so myself nothing beats pizza whether it’s on a weekday or a Friday night and I’ve even had the pleasure to eat pizza […]

Baked Loaded Cauliflower Pizza

  Cauliflower Just Got A Whole Lot Better If you are in the mood for an easy pizza recipe or if you aren’t good at making pizza dough than this is the pizza for you. I know you are thinking cauliflower pizza sounds disgusting but trust me it’s far from what you think.The best part is that you don’t need any flour and it’s not going to cost you lots of money to make this frugal pizza in a flash. When I am on Facebook, particularly my Canadian Budget Binder and The Free Recipe Depot pages I see recipes in  my news feed all the time and many of my fans like and share recipes as well. The other day one of my fans and I can’t remember who mentioned or liked this cauliflower pizza recipe and I knew I just had to make it. I thought it was a brilliant idea since we had a great big bowl of cauliflower mash in the refrigerator that my wife and I made the previous day instead of mashed potatoes. Her sister came around with a head of cauliflower that they weren’t going to use up on time and asked if we […]

Olive Pita Pizza: Mushrooms, Sausage, Ricotta and Pesto

Dinner Ideas Made Simple With Pita Bread Pita bread pizza is one of our favourite pizzas to make on homemade olive pita even though every once in a while I whip up my better than take-out pizza as a splurge for the two of us. The great thing about pita bread pizzas is that it is an easy meal for one and it’s not only simple to make it’s also a healthy alternative to the traditional pizza pie. The ingredients to make your own pita bread are fairly straightforward but if you don’t fancy making your own pita bread you can purchase all sorts of flat breads and pita breads at the grocery store for about $1.00. For this recipe I used my olive pita bread recipe but I rolled it out very thin so no pocket would form. We are always looking for healthy lunch ideas and preferably a recipe that won’t take us long to make. The great thing about making the pita bread is you can freeze it and take one out a time if you like if you only want to make one serving. Cooking with kids Pita bread pizzas are becoming more popular with the […]

Saturday Weekend Review #14- Credit Card Surcharges, Would You Pay Them?

  Paying to use our credit card each time we swiped it would certainly make the choice of not using it easy for us. A recent conversation with a local pizzeria owner we frequent shared with us that it does cost him money when customers use a credit card. If we ever order a pizza now we pay in cash because we kinda feel bad about it, but not sure if he meant to make us feel that way or we feel sorry for him. He does make a good pizza for a reasonable price though. Canadian businesses are charged fees from 1.5 to more than 3%  of each purchase put on a MasterCard and Visa credit card. Best of it is, if you are using a premium credit card merchants have to pay more. The transaction charges imposed are per the anti-competitive rules set out by the competition bureau of Canada. Would you not say that this is just part of the cost of doing business?  We have seen signs at shops that say “Cash Only” or “Debit and Credit Card Machine” down in our days but tend to stay away. In Canada merchants can ask the customer to pay a surcharge […]
