Pizza is an intriguing beast - there are so many topping ideas and preferences - for ME? A pizza I would make for myself would have blue cheese, peppers, olives and so many things that cost more $$! BUT Greg is the pizza guy, and he makes it to please the boys! You could add a bar b que swirl... or if you wanted to make it cost less, you can buy salami bits, and ham pieces in the deli section of most supermarkets that are VERY cheap, and tasty too! Our nod to decadence is the dash of parmesan cheese!
This is our Friday Night meal - so we generally have a bottle of wine (from shopping today September 28, 2012) that will add 6.98 to our meal, and our boys get a glass of coke - so add $1.99
We don't buy juice so for the rest of the week, our boys drink water, or milk, or I will make homemade Canadian lemonade (not fizzy) from the lemons off our tree.
