Pizza Dough (Bread Machine)

2 Jun

This is the recipe my family has been using for our homemade pizzas for years! It’s really easy, delicious, and pretty darn healthy. However, if you do not have a bread machine I have another pizza dough recipe (I will post very soon) that can be ready in 1 hour and doesn’t require a bread machine. It’s just really nice to be able to put all the ingredients in and hit the dough cycle, pull it out when it’s ready, roll out the pizzas, assemble, and bake to perfection!

Put these ingredients into your bread machine in this order and select the dough cycle (mine takes 1 hour and 20 minutes)

1 5/8 cups water (1 1/2 cups plus 2 tbsp)

3 cups white flour

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 tbsp sugar

1 1/2 tsp salt

1 T dry active yeast

Once the dough is ready take it out and form into either 2 regular sized pizzas or several individual pizzas. However, if you don’t need 2 crusts, form the one you won’t use, bake it at 350 for 10 minutes and then freeze it until you need to make a homemade pizza and… voila! Instant delicious homemade pizza in about 20 minutes.

I also use this pizza dough to make 12 calzones (another recipe I will post soon). They freeze well and you can be as creative as you want… the sky’s the limit!

NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION (1/2 the recipe or 1 pizza):

Calories: 902.5   Fat: 3.5g (saturated .5g)   Fiber: 19.5g   Protein: 31.5g   Sodium: 1755.5mg
