Bread Machine Pizza Dough

pizzasYou may remember a few weeks ago when we bundled all our kids in the car to take them to see E.T at the drive-in. Then a hail storm started, the movie was cancelled and we drove home with three sad kids, one sad mom, and a dad who didn’t want his family to be sad. We finally made it up to them tonight. Got E.T from the library ,had a make your own pizza dinner, and no E.T movie night would be complete with Reese’s pieces!Reese's Pieces


This is my favorite recipe for pizza dough, so easy and tastes great. In the original recipe it makes one large pizza, but I like to split it into individual size so we can all choose our own toppings. Pizza night is just so much more fun this way. Recipe makes 5-6 individual crusts.

Original recipe from The All-New Ultimate Bread Machine Cookbook

  1. Do you use your bread maker very often? I remember my family growing up got one when they first came out and at first we loved it, but after a while we all came to the conclusion that no matter what recipie we used all the breads that came out that machine tasted kind of the same and we just sort of stopped using it.

    Do you find that with yours? Do you get a good variety of breads?

    1. I love bread machines! I use it for pizza from time to time, and recently made an awesome rosemary focaccia. I’ve found the secret to variety is the dough setting, and sometimes making a starter or sponge before hand. That way, you can get different textures and flavors. The book I have is called “Rustic European Breads from you Bread Machine.”

  2. Adrienne, I do love to use my bread machine, especially in fall /winter when I am making lots of soups. I find that if you are making a plain loaf of bread they do have that undeniable “bread machine” taste. I have discovered that when you just make the dough and then bake in your own oven it tastes a lot more like real homemade. Also as Shay said variety in ingredients helps a lot.

  3. What a great idea, this looks incredible!! Love your blog and so glad to be a new follower! xoxo

  4. This looks great! I want to get a bread machine when I really decide to start baking. By the way, it’s funny that this is the first recipe I checked out this morning because I just posted a recipe for “bread pizza” last night. Now I want to make a real pizza!

  5. Nothing better than homemade pizza!

  6. love making my own pizza! so delicious and dont even have to put on real clothes to head out to a restaurant!
