Bread Machine Pizza Dough

Pin It

Normally, my DH has always made the homemade pizza in our house.  But, I just found this recipe earlier this week.  He thought it tasted really good and "homemade," far better than the french bread pizza I made earlier this week.   Either way, it's a win-win!  The recipe is adapted from Salad in a Jar.  There were very little leftovers with my family of six; bummer!

1 cup warm water
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
4 tsp olive oil
2 tsp honey
3 cups flour
2 1/4 tsp yeast (1 pkg)

In the bread machine, add the ingredients in order, and select the dough cycle option.  Once the dough has completed rising, punch it down to get rid of any air bubbles.  Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 450 degrees, and spray 2 9x13 pans or pizza pans with some canola oil. (I don't have a pizza pan; the 9x13 pan worked wonderfully.)

When ready, pull the dough out of the machine, and separate into two sections.  Roll out the dough to the desired shape.  If the dough is too elastic, let it rest a minute, and relax.  Place in desired pan, and spray dough with some more of the canola oil.  Then, apply a thin layer of sauce, cheese, and toppings.

Bake in oven for about 15-20 minutes, or more if too much sauce was applied to dough.  ( I checked mine at 10 minutes to check for doneness.)  Slice with a pizza cutter and serve.  (I did not have a problem taking the pizza out of the 9x13 pan and placing on a cookie sheet for easier cutting.)
