After returning from Spring break, whether you went somewhere tropical, spent it at home with friends, or maybe binge-shopped online in preparation for warmer weather, everyone seems to be on a low budget.

Over break, my friends and I wanted to make the best of our movie night and mini reunion. So instead of spending $15 on restaurant pizza plus a $5 tip, we bought a package of flatbread, cheese, sauce (although this homemade sauce recipe from Queen’s University sounds pretty good), and vegetables from the grocery store to make four personal pizzas.

It was a creative task, fun experience, and quick process for hungry stomachs. The secret to this pizza’s success is that it’s incredibly easy to make because there is no mess of rolling out any dough.

Flatbread eliminates the mess and aggravation while tasting just as good if not even better than dough. It’s also very healthy with vegetables being the dominant ingredient. Our low budget food experiment was a success and is now a movie night tradition.
