Bread Machine Pizza
Make Your Pizza Dough in Your Machine!
  • 2 1/2cups warm waternot hot
  • 4tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1tablespoon sugar
  • 1 big sprinkle sea salt
  • 7cups flourwe use 5whole wheat and 2 all-purpose and sometimes add in flaxseed flour but you could use any flour like rice, corn or your fav. Make it your own!
  • 1 1/2teaspoons yeastthey have brands specifically for bread makers
  1. Combine all of the ingredients listed above in order in the bread mixer.
  2. After you get everything in there, close the lid, find your ‘Dough’ setting and let it go to work. Once the cycle is over, dump the dough out on a floured surface and squish it a few times to beat it down, getting out all those air bubbles.
  3. Then let it rise again for about 10 minutes–just cover it up with a big mixing bowl. Once it’s risen back up again your only limited by your own imagination! We’ve made regular pizzas (this recipe can probably make about 5 or 6 medium pizzas), calezones, pizza sticks and other yummy things. I like to divide the dough into four blobs, using two fresh then freezing the other two.
  4. For the sauce, I use fresh tomatoes in the summer and canned crushed tomatoes and tomato paste in the winter (once the tomatoes we’ve frozen are all gone!) All you do is heat up a pot on medium heat then pour a couple of rounds of EVOO in the bottom. Once your oil is heated up (when you see ripples in the oil) put a couple of cloves of minced garlic in there (I like using my fine grater so the garlic blends in a little better and the kids don’t find those little chunkies of garlic).
  5. After a few minutes dump a large can of crushed tomatoes (796 ml) and a larger can of tomato paste (369 ml) in with the garlic. Stir that up, add in your favorite herbs (I like an Italian blend with TONS of oregano and basil), a bit of sugar, salt and pepper and you’re laughing.
