I never order takeout pizza. It just doesn't taste good and it can be expensive. Instead, I keep a bag of Trader Joe's pizza dough in my freezer. At 99 cents, the dough is a bargain, and, as long as you don't spend a lot of money on ingredients, you can make a recession-ready pizza in no time. Take this pizza, for example. I caramelized a red onion (89 cents), cut a few sprigs of rosemary off my office plant (practically free!), and added a handful of Gruyere cheese (~$1.50). That's about $3.50, if you count some olive oil and a bit of cornmeal for the pizza paddle. And, this pizza was enough for two meals. Take that Ben Bernanke.
