about the recipe

Craving pizza night at home but want to ditch the delivery? This Bread Machine Pizza Dough is the perfect solution!  With just a handful of ingredients and your trusty bread maker, you have a perfectly chewy, just-crisp-enough crust that your family is going to love.

INGREDIENTS

– 1 ½ cups water – 2 tablespoons olive oil – 2 cups bread flour – 1 ¾ cups all purpose flour – 2 teaspoons sugar – 2 teaspoons sea salt – 1 ½ teaspoons bread machine yeast

– Place the ingredients in your bread machine in the order they are listed.

– Select the dough cycle and hit start.

– When the time is up, divide the dough into 4 8-ounce balls.

– Preheat the oven to 500° F with a pizza stone in the lower third.

– Lightly flour your work surface, and form each round to about 10-to 11-inch circles.

– Cover the dough with the sauce, cheese, and desired fixings, leaving a ¾ inch border.

– Use a pizza peel to transfer the crust to the pizza stone. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted.
