Frugal Pizza Bread

Frugal Pizza Bread

This is a budget friendly Frugal Pizza Bread. It is so affordable and tasty it can match most restaurant versions. I don’t know how you would describe it, but it is the most excellent bread I’ve had in a long time apart from my beloved sourdough. Maybe it was because it was just freshly baked and so soft even the day after. 

I was not planning on making this at all. But don’t those recipes always turn out the best? However, when I got a glimpse of this recipe and I was instantly captured.

Looking at the recipe, I immediately thought of the Italian word for mopping up sauces with bread scarpetta. I can see this bread making a simple bowl of soup extra special. 

Simple, and utterly affordable.

This was so handy as I had a lot of yeast in my cupboards, 7 packets to be exact. I am a colossal sourdough fan, so the yeast is always on standby. But, as I was conscious of how much yeast id managed to store up, I’ve been keeping an eye on recipes where I can easily use it different ways.

I’m not a huge fan of pizzas. But my kids love pizzas. Do we have pizza night every single week? YES we do!  I absolutely adore bread, so this was a winner for the whole family.

A frugal top tip – I buy my flour in bulk, and I find it handy to make my breads at home because I always know what I’m feeding my family. Well, most of the time, I also think fresh bread is simpler now that I have my kitchen aid mixer. 

Before we get into the recipe & ingredients, if you have fresh yeast please bear in mind that you can use fresh yeast for this. Use 20g fresh as its the equivalent to 7g of dried.
