Home made pizza is even cheaper, better for you and far tastier. If you have a bread maker it's a very easy meal to make.
I don't think you can beat a $7.99 large pepperoni walk-in. Unless you're buying things on sale there is no way to come even close. Grated cheese -- enough for a large, is around $7 regularly priced, and that's probably just enough to make it like the Pizza Pizz walk-in special. If you want more cheese it will be more. I usually buy it when it's reduced to $3.99 (that's either 320 or 340 grams). And there's little difference between grated and ungrated (unless you buy the brick cheese, which I find less than ideal for pizza). Anyhow, the 340g package is probably just barely enough for a large. Add in a dollar for the sauce and another for the pepperoni and you're already at $6. Making the crust yourself is time consuming; I suppose you can prepare ahead and freeze, but I think I'd just as well buy it at this point, which is probably another $2, maybe more. The part that really gets me then is the rolling out of the crust.
The time it takes is really my biggest hurdle. Saturday or Sunday afternoon, provided there are no birthday parties or hockey games/practices or anything like that. I know the kids would enjoy making their own, too. Hmm, maybe I should put that on the menu once in a while.
Hey, I don't have all the answers. In life, to be honest, I've failed as much as I have succeeded. But I love my wife. I love my life. And I wish you my kind of success.
