I found this after searching far and wide about 1 year ago and it is the only bread machine recipe I use now for pizza. In fact, I am cooking it now!!! I add a bit more water, about 1 Tblsp more of olive oil, 2 Tblsp cornmeal, 1 tsp crushed garlic, parmesan cheese and heaps of basil and oregano to the dough mix. Delicious and our friends rave about it when I cook it!!!!
Excellent crust - I made the dough in the bread machine, rubbed it with oil then let it sit (covered) an extra 1/2 hour to raise then cut it in half and made 2 thin crust pizza's. Really good!
Great Recipe! Have been looking for the perfect crust for awhile and I have finally found it. I made two pizza crusts from this recipe, and they weren't too thin. I added 1/2 tsp. garlic powder, 1/2 tsp. oregano and 1/2 tsp. italian seasoning. I used the water recipe, but next time will try adding the beer.
Glad I happened on this recipe. I have tried many recipes for pizza dough, but none as good as this, and this is the first bread machine recipe I have tried. I made two pizzas from this recipe. Dough was ready before I was so I punched down and let rise again. I baked crust first then added toppings and put under broiler. You could easily prebake. A few crusts then top and broil when ready to serve. I used a pizza stone and crust was very crispy with big holes at edge. Perfect.
this recipe is the only pizza recipe I use now... The only changes I made were that I use beer (when I have some) instead of water and I use half bread flour and half regular flour...
I didn't add the herbs, but I did add a tsp more sugar to make it a little sweeter.thanks for the recipe.
We really enjoyed this pizza crust. We like them thin so I got 2 crusts of about 10" each. I part baked them and finished off with topping etc the next night. Thanks for a great starter recipe.
This recipe makes a great pizza crust! I made it tonight with the help of my three year old. We were able to make 2 large thin and crisy crust pizzas using this recipe. We added the optional spices (no rosemary) and used cornmeal to dust the board when rolling out the dough. We have tried many pizza dough recipes, but this one wins the blue ribbon! Thanks!!
