Home > Cheap Family Fun., Food, and a Budget. > Try RAGU – PIZZA QUICK!


It comes in a small jar at your local grocer. What it is, is a mixture of pizza sauce, (I prefer the original style, they have different flavors) with spices that you spread on a slice of white bread and then toast in an oven or a toaster oven.  Toast until the bottom of the bread is just firm and not really toasted, unless you like your pizza crunchy. Let them cool slightly, (so you don’t get pizza mouth) then enjoy.

Kids love them because it’s like having a mini pizza with each slice. You can even get some grated cheese, sliced peperoni and some of your other favorite toppings to spread on them, to add to their fun and taste.

The kids will eat them up!  It’s great  at a small birthday party (buy several jars, but it’s still way cheaper than real pizza).  Help the kids put the toppings on their own slices and show them how to make funny faces with the toppings. Then you heat them for the kids and serve them. That way they get to build and eat their own little pizzas. Remember sometimes it’s the simple things that are the most fun and most remembered.

A jar is only around two or three bucks depending where you shop and should make about a dozen or so slices, depending on how thick you spread the sauce.

It’s a quick and cheep meal or even a great Bednight Snack. Not great nutritional value so don’t serve too frequently. But it’s just like mini pizzas and they say pizza has all the good stuff you need.

So Enjoy. Just add four pepperonis and light cheese to mine please! And by the way I like mine lightly toasted. 🙂

    Idk what this means. Well, i do. But what im trying to say is, nobody ever did that for me. 6 older siblings and yet my freinds taught me more in one year about life than my brothers could in 19 years. True story… But it’s ok because im proud of the individual i grew up to be im no saint i make mistakes but i believe in myself:)
