Weekly Grocery Deals & Frugal Recipe: BBQ Yardbird Pizza

(Note: Each week Frugal Townie and I, in a combined effort post the Grocery Deals Round-Up and a Frugal Recipe that goes right along with the current deals.)

Lately I’ve shared the recipe: Spring Salad with Grilled Veggies. Many of the items needed for that are still on sale this week (bold items means it’s the best price):

– Corn- $1/ 3 ($0.33 ea) @ Hy-Vee
Mushrooms- $0.79/ 8oz pk @ Aldi
Peppers (Bell Multi-Colored) – $1.59/ 3 pk @ Aldi

This week…

There are a LOT of grilling stuff (and veggies) on sale! Here’s a recipe that goes right along with Frugal Townie’s Round-Up for the week of May 9th.

These are the items on sale for this week’s Frugal and Healthy Recipe:

– Chicken (breast, boneless/skinless)- $1.58/lb @ Checkers
– Cheese (Kroger block/sliced/shred)- $1.79/ea @ Dillons



BBQ Yardbird Pizza


– Base: ½ cup ready-made barbecue sauce

– Toppings: ½ cup sliced roasted chicken breast + ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese + ½ cup sliced red onion + ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro – optional (we didn’t choose to use cilantro the first time making this, but we certainly will the second time!)



I make my own pizza dough using: 6 cups flour + 1-2 Tbl. yeast + 2 cups warm water + 2Tbl. oil.

Mix together ingredients, knead, and let rise until doubled. (This makes 2 pizza crusts.)

Add base and toppings to pizza, then cooked at 425 degrees for 25 min (I switch the pizzas in the oven halfway through for even cooking.)


So easy to make and it’s also very affordable. This pizza costs me about $3 to make. Pretty cheap meal! (Flour & Cheese from CostCo, Chicken – boneless chicken I cooked up myself for $1.88/lb., red onion from checkers) I am still adding to my recipe calculator, but that is something that is coming to Romance on a Dime in the near future!

Additionally, Yogurt (Kroger Greek) is on sale – $4 / 5 @ Dillons.

Last week I posted a recipe on how to make your own Homemade Yogurt – it’s really easy and you only need 2 Tbl. of yogurt and 1 quart of milk to make 1 quart of yogurt!
