Excellent and so easy. I used to make owning using the kitchen aid but with bread machine I can just start it and let it go. The only change was after the rising to fill the bread machine pan, I removed, punched down on floured surface and placed in lightly greased bowl and placed in on counter. This way the second rise was completed by dinner time.

Pizza dough is one of the easiest things to make that you can turn into 100's of uses! The only down fall to it is you need a bread machine to make it. But with just a few simple everyday household items you can make homemade dough everyday and reduce your grocery costs. With this universal recipe you can make everything from pizza to Strombolis and Cal-zones. The bonus of it is it's really simple to make!

An easy pizza dough recipe you can make in your bread machine! You could separate the dough into individual personal pizzas to add to the fun. Have a marinara sauce and different cheeses, pepperonis, and sausages on hand. Picky eaters can put on the ingredients they want and everybody’s happy!

REVIEW: recipe rating
This pizza dough recipe is the best I've tried so far! I like to use olive oil and add cheese to the crust before baking to give it an extra kick. The crust is always crunchy, full, and delicious! This is my go-to recipe for my family's weekly pizza night, and I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone and everyone.

Absolutely perfect!! Used the bread machine per instructions...easy! Baked crust full amount of time. Crust was wonderful and recipe made 2 12" pizzas. Unfortunately, my husband now wants pizza all the time.

REVIEW: recipe rating
I love this recipe! It was so simple and the crust tastes so good! It was the first time my son wanted to eat the crust on a pizza. I like the fact that this recipe makes two doughs. A lot of recipes I have seen only makes one which is time consuming when you want to make multiple pies. My kids loved it so much and I can't be happier!

I have make your own pizza night about once a week for the kids. I'm always looking for new dough recipes. This was fantastic. In added rosemary and garlic powder as I turned on the dough cycle. Absolutely delicious! Thanks for sharing.

The best bread machine pizza dough yet, and couldn't be simpler! Makes enough dough for 2 large pizzas

Let me start out by saying this deserves more than 5 stars. The best crust i ever tasted! I will be using this recipe for now on. Thank you for sharing it with us.

REVIEW: recipe rating
Excellent recipe! A lot of other bread machine pizza dough recipes came out very bready. This one actually is pretty close to pizzeria pizza. If I could make one small suggestion... if you really want this to be excellent, then do what pizzerias do and leave it in the fridge for at least a day. I made some and forgot about it, and then made it two days later and it was awesome! It really does improve with age, though I don't know what the cutoff is.

REVIEW: recipe rating
This was my first attempt at homemade pizzas and I was over the moon how well they turned out. My fiance kept turning to me nodding his head up and down as he munched away happily. It was SO easy and has made the need to buy supermarket pizzas a thing of the past for us. I made my own Neapolitan sauce which seemed to make it that bit tastier too and only took 10 minutes to cook up the sauce. Highly recommend this pizza dough recipe and wish I'd tried it years ago.

The best pizza ever! My kids who normally don't eat pizza (I know that's weird! :)) asked me if we could make some more the next day!
That's the only time that the crust is crispy outside and soft inside!!!!

REVIEW: recipe rating
I've tried several pretty good pizza dough recipes, but this one actually did stand out from the rest. I substituted milk for half the water, but other than that I just followed the recipe. We divided the recipe into fourths and each of us made our own little "personal" pizza. Really good flavor and consistency.

REVIEW: recipe rating
I have used this recipe at least a dozen times and it comes out GREAT every time. The dough is very east to work with, too never stiff.

I have used this to make pizza in the oven on a pizza stone, but by far the best is pizza made on the grill. The crust is nice and crispy on the outside and soft inside!!

I won't use any other dough recipes ever again!!


Guest at CDKitchen.com




REVIEW: recipe rating
The dough was nice and easy to spread out on the pan and then once it was cooked, it was nice and chewy. It tasted better than a restaurant! I'm making the recipe for my next party.

REVIEW: recipe rating
Gave me the courage to try 'active dry yeast' not bread machine yeast! Dough success will depend on how the rest of the 'pizza recipe' asks for the dough to be used. My advice is not to proof (precook) at all. My second piece of advice would be to take some time to between stages of assembly to let the dough rise/rest. I did like the dough ... just not for novices to get a good result.

REVIEW: recipe rating
My first bread maker years ago was used all the time and eventually wore out....its recipe book had a great pizza dough recipe. When we replaced the first bread maker...the new machine's recipe book did not have a pizza dough recipe...so it has been years since I made homemade pizza...found this recipe online...tried it today in the bread maker and SUCCESS....everyone was thrilled and my son who is 12 and hates trying anything said it was delicious....I about fainted hearing that from him....This is definitely a keeper and will be made often!

REVIEW: recipe rating
This is a great pizza dough, my family loved it, thought there would be left overs but there is nothing but crumbs. After I took it out of the bread machine I rolled it out into the size of dough I wanted and let it raise for 20 min and than blind baked it for 5 min and than took it out and put on my toppings. Worked great! Thanks for the recipe

When I make breadmaker pizza dough, I put it in the refrigerator (covered in a tupperware) overnight after it is done. It rises slowly but tastes a lot better. I punch it down, let it come to room temp, then use it.

COMMENT:
So many reviews, but I have a question. When you make this, do you place the dough in a bowl for rising after the dough cycle has completed on the bread machine? If you do, do you punch then dough, then roll out for the pizza?

If you use the dough straight from the breadmaker, has it risen? Does it need to be 'punched'?

If you want to make it again of time, do you take it straight from the breadmaker to a plastic bag for the refrigerator or freezer?

More details are needed. Please post more information if you have made this recipe and you have the answers to these questions.

Thanks

REVIEW: recipe rating
This is by far the best, I mean the best pizza dough ever. I have tried numerous pizza dough recipes and my crust has always turned out rock hard, but this was nice and soft. Making pizza dough at home is not an easy task, but this recipe has made it so simple with awesome results. I hardly leave reviews for recipes because I have always changed it, but this one I followed exactly and had to leave a review. I have to thank it for ending my search for a pizza dough that would not bake rock hard. I baked my pizza on top of aluminum foil and parchment paper on the wired rack because I didn't have a pizza stone or pan.

REVIEW: recipe rating
This pizza dough recipe is really fantastic. I've made it 5 times now (and a 6th is in the machine right now). The first time, I made no changes and it was pretty dang good... The second time, though, I changed the water to beer and it was 100% better! With beer, the recipe gets 6 stars! I cook mine on a terra cotta potting saucer (who needs a pizza stone for $40 when I can get a saucer for $15)? It is really crispy on the outside. I've also added flavor ingredients including dried rosemary, red pepper flakes & garlic paste... all very good. Seriously, try this recipe... especially if you have some extra beer! ;)

REVIEW: recipe rating
Im kinda known for the huge calzones I make my friends have even nicknamed them, I tried this recipe last night and its spectacular and amazing the dough was slightly crisp on the outside but not hard and on the inside it was heaven the dough and the middle toppings just fused together into this beautiful soft calzone paradise I now feel bad for using the store bought dough for years I will never do that again. Thanks for the best recipe and I think the only one worth being listed :-)

REVIEW: recipe rating
Works great! No too wet like some of the other recipes. Perfect for high temp baking and didn't stick to the peel so I ended up using less flour underneath the dough. Let mine rise for an hour after the knead cycle and turned out fine. I made two medium sized pies with this recipe.

REVIEW: recipe rating
I have a Sunbeam 2 lb machine that came with a recipe booklet. I tried to modify a recipe by subbing some whole wheat with disastrous result. I thought I give this one a try after all what do I have to lose? And here is my modifications: 1 cup water, 1 tb oil, 7 oz (weight) bread flour, 7 oz freshly grind whole wheat flour. (Note: use a digital scale to measure the weight. Don't use measuring cup for better accuracy) Cut back a little on salt and the rest are the same. When the dough cycle was over. I was quite surprised that it was perfect. I thought that the subbing of WW flour would make it hard and dry, but that wasn't the case. It was perfect for rolling it out. Definitely a keeper. A+++++++

I made this recipe today and used half of the dough for a huge strombili. I made a nice sized pizza with the other half. Both were the best I've ever made!! This dough is fabulous! I will never look for another recipe. It rolled out so beautifully. Very stretchy and no tears. Best EVER!! THANKS!!

Great Fool Proof Recipe! (And by fool proof, I mean husband proof.) My wife thought this recipe would be easy enough for even me to do on my own. I did manage to measure all the ingredients OK, but after the 90 minutes in the bread machine, the dough looked exactly the same as when it started. Apparently bread machines work much better when you insert the mixing blade at the bottom before starting. My wife saw what I'd done, stirred up the dough, and let it sit for a while. Surprisingly, it still rose just fine, and we were still able to make a great pizza! Very impressive.

REVIEW: recipe rating
Fantastic recipe. Finally a bread machine pizza dough recipe that makes more than a 12" pizza! We made 5 various-sized personal pizzas with it.

Made it with 1 1/2 cups white and 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour, and cut the salt to 1/2 tsp. This one is going into my tried and true file. Definitely a keeper.

Caution: do not allow to remain in bread maker after dough cycle is finished. After the 1 1/2 hours I wasn't quite ready with the toppings yet, so I left it in a little longer, and it started to overflow! I have a 2-lb bread maker...

This recipe was so easy and very tasty. Just what I was looking for. I used extra flour to roll out the dough and then brushed the edges with water before putting in the oven the help it to brown nicely.

This is the best crust recipe out there we use it at least once a week we have a 3 lb. bread machine and you can upsize the recipe to 4 crusts and we get 3 16" pizzas out of it or 2 pizzas and a good serving of bread stix.

We use a 16" pizza stone and 2 wooden peels and cook it at 500-505 deg. for 6-7 mins and we sprinkle the peel with corn meal. great recipe!

I have tried several pizza dough recipes and this is by far the best. I kept my neighbors children today and found this recipe before I picked them up from school. I put it in my bread machine and after we got here, it was ready. We put it on a pizza pan and piled on the ingredients. It was a hit and sooooooooo tasty and soft. I'll be using this recipe from now on. THANKS!
