My 23p Gourmet Pizza

 
Determined not to spend at all yesterday I rummaged through the freezer just before teatime and came across the boring little pizza above.  It cost me just 23p as a 'reduced to clear' bargain way back in May, bought during my '365 Days - £365' challenge.
 
But I couldn't just eat it like that now could I  ;-)
 
 
So two tubs of recently grated cheese were pulled from the fridge, a couple of teaspoons worth of Pesto was discovered lurking at the bottom of it's jar and I used a couple of the gorgeous Sundried Tomatoes gifted to us by Sarah on her recent visit as well as a few leaves plucked from the Basil plant on the kitchen window sill.

 
There ... now doesn't that look better!!

 
It tasted divine, so my 23p bargain pizza with odds and sods from around the kitchen made for a wonderful tea last night.  Yummy, yummy, yummy pizza in my tummy :-)

  1. It certainly looks more appetising in the last pic than the first! It's amazing what a little ingenuity can achieve isn't it?

  8. I always buy cheapy pizzas then add my made up topping that I freeze in small tubs. I keep some mozzarella in the freezer and with some grated cheddar its really good.

  11. That pizza looks very good! Unfortunately I can't eat tomatoes but Hell's Pizza make me a lovely small one using seafood mayonnaise instead, with smoked salmon, cream creese and capers ... I could have avocado as well, but it's too rich for me with them. Have you discovered what Poppy is up to yet?

  12. I usually add something extra to the cheaper pizzas, I adore sundried tomatoes , they are my weakness at the moment, I buy them from lidl, and just eat out of the jar .

  14. Glad you are enjoying the toms :) Pizza looks delish :) I dry my tomatoes in the Excalibur dehydrator - they are so versatile and can be turned into sun dried toms in oil ( but adding a spalsh of boiling water, and then after 10 mins soak some olive oil and herbs) or just add to dished to add a depth of richness and flavour - yummy
