Ok, so I guess it's cheating a little, maybe, well, maybe not. I utilized my bread maker today to make my pizza dough recipe. Can I just say... I LOVE MY BREAD MAKER!. I've had it since my bridal shower over 12 years ago. It was a gift from my mother-in-law. She knew how much my husband loved BREAD so she wanted to make sure he could have homemade bread when ever he wanted.
Let me just say, that when I've made bread in this bread maker, I can't get it to work out right. But I can do the dough. The other thing is that my husband can get this bread maker to work GREAT. I think that's funny. I make the dough stuff, he makes the bread. :) but I prefer to make bread the old fashioned way, using my hands. That being said. I made homemade pizza dough. It is from the recipe book that came with the bread maker.
***Added to my bread maker in the order listed. It requires liquids first then dry.
Ingredients for double crust recipe:
1 1/4 cups + 1tbsp water 80F or (10 1/2 oz)
4 Tbsp vegetable oil
4 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp sugar (still our of white, used 1 1/2 tbsp brown sugar)
1 tsp salt
2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast or 2 tsp fast rise yeast
**Optional (I always add)**
3 Tbsp italian seasoning
3 Tbsp Garlic powder (not salt)
Then I place the pan in my bread maker and 1 hr and 4o min. It's a great pizza dough. Once it's done in the bread maker, knead about 1 min. let rest 15 min.
Roll dough out to fit a 12-14 inch pizza pan Place dough into greased pan which has been sprinkled with corn meal. Press dough into pan, forming an edge.
Let dough rise in warm draft free place for 20-25 min.
Spread pizza sauce evenly over crust, then top with favorite meat, toppings and cheese. Bake in a preheated oven 425F oven for 20-25 min or until nicely browned on top, let rest 5 min before cutting.
