Funfetti Cupcakes and Homemade Pizza!

I visit a “salvage” store about once a month…

I had met a lady that owned one many years ago when I worked part-time at a Bakery…

and I have frequented this one store many times…

It has slightly dented canned goods… that can’t be sent to Grocery Stores… but, recent dates…

They always have fresh produce of some kind… so reasonably priced…

Also baking items…cereals- frozen foods- drinks- breads- cleaning supplies…etc. …

I always stock up on a few items that I like…

This week cake mixes were 3/$1.00…k21663176

Canned goods… 59 cents…

You see where I am going with this…

CHEAP!…

Cake mixes got me thinking Cup Cakes…

I always have cup cake papers on hand…

Just needed some frosting to top them off…

I chose Funfetti with bright sprinkles… Oh, yes!… and CHOCOLATE…

since I was baking white cake…

I really like white cake… not as sweet as others… and I only used a dab of frosting on the ones we were keeping to eat…

but, the other dozen got the works!…

Lots of frosting and sprinkles for the neighbor who cuts grass… k34786073

Mix the Pizza Dough Mix with warm water… which contains yeast…

Put mixed dough in warm place…

you let rise a few minutes…

Then put on a greased pizza pan or baking sheet…

Since we were making a bigger one … we opted for the baking sheet and would cut into squares…

Baked at around 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes until bubbly and golden brown crust…

Let cool a little… and cut into squares…

We love it!

To tell you the truth… I looked for the leftovers for my breakfast… but, was ALL GONE!
