Pizzeria pizza may be a good deal when there's lots of competition in the marketplace, but the price always creeps back up into the stratosphere eventually. Sure, compared to a dinner out it's not too bad, but compared to what you would spend to make a pizza for yourself -- well, there's no comparison. It isn't just the money, either. If you craft your own specialty pizza, you control the ingredients. Go ahead and splurge on quality deli pepperoni once in a while. The rest of the time, some low-fat cheese, low-sodium sauce and garden fresh vegetables will make a very flavorful pizza that's cheaper and better for you.
