Bread Machine Pizza Dough

Who doesn't love pizza? And if you make it yourself you can save a bundle as well as use up all the leftovers in your fridge.
This is the best bread machine pizza dough I have found, I can't remember exactly where this one came from but I love it. I have made this lots of times and it's always good. The best thing about it is that it makes enough for my big family, I don't have to double it or make 2 batches. I can get 2 or 3 pizzas from this recipe depending on how thin I make the crust.

2 c. water
5 c. flour, part whole wheat
1/4 c. oil
1-1/2 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. sugar
3 tsp. rapid rise yeast

Put the ingredients in and set the machine for quick dough. Roll dough out, top with your choice of toppings, you should have enough to make something for everyone, bake @ 425.

We have pizza once a week, this week we had...
peperoni, basil, green peppers, black olives & mushrooms

cheese & peperoni

basil, spinach & mushrooms.

Sometimes I give the kids their own glob of dough and let them make their own mini-pizzas. This recipe makes great calzones too!

Will your family eat blue cheese? I've made this awesome buffalo chicken pizza with blue cheese, easy homemade sauce, green onions, chicken and jack/fontina or havarti...it's not overly blue cheesy.


I LOVE this one --husband does too! :)
