This delicious crust is soft, flavorful, and works great for any kind of sweet or savory pizza.

Add the following ingredients into your bread maker in the order specified by the manufacturer and set your machine to the dough cycle.

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 c Water
  • 1 T Olive oil
  • 1/2 t Salt
  • 2 t Sugar
  • 2 c Flour
  • 1 1/2 t Yeast

 

Instructions:

When the dough cycle is complete, roll out on to a pizza pan and let rise again for another 30 minutes or so.

Bake at 425F for 10-12 minutes. Add toppings, broil until cheese is melted.

This will make enough dough for one 16″ pizza. This recipe can be easily doubled and the dough may be frozen if wrapped tightly and placed in the freezer immediately. If you are freezing the dough make sure you put in in the coldest part of the freezer immediately so it freezes as quickly as possible, otherwise the dough will continue to rise and burst out of the plastic.
