Question: Does anyone really use their bread making machine to make pizza dough?
I love home made pizza. I don't really care for the pre-packaged crust mixes. Ive been thinking about putting my bread machine to work. This way I will always have more than enough dough to work with. Any tips on handling, freezing and thawing the dough? Any recipes that work well for this application?
Thanks in advance for your answer!

Answer
I sure do. Just a simple mix your unbleached flour, water, extra virgin olive oil, sugar,salt, flour and oregano and youBBQ Chicken Pizza

are ready to go.  Bread making machines these days have a dough cycle. Set you bread maker on this setting.  Once this cycle has finished I let it rest for 20 minutes at room temperature then I roll the dough out and shape it. You can store some of the dough in the frig for up to 24hours, the freezer for 2 months.  If the dough has been frozen, let it thaw in the refrigerator over night before using.  I use my bread machine for everything!  Good luck.

    My wife and I are pizza fanatics. Making dough with your bread maker is very simple. We make it fresh as needed. One little trick we use, when we need our dough a little quicker and need it to rise faster, we use our oven onto warm the dough. Just set the dough in a bowl near the oven vent.

    Here is a great recipe we use,

    1/2 cup water 110 degrees
    1 packet instant yeast or 2 1/4 teaspoons
    1 1/4 cup water, keep it at room temperature
    2 tbsp olive oil – extra-virgin
    4 cups of bread flour
    1 1/2 teaspoon salt

    Add the 110-degree water to bread machine bread pan. Gently sprinkle in your yeast, let stand for five minutes, or at least until the yeast dissolves. Add the remaining water, olive oil and other ingredients. Set bread machine to dough setting, press go. Once the bread maker finishes your dough should be smooth and elastic.

    Move your dough to a floured surface, knead it a little, roll it into a ball. If sticky, add a little more flour. Divide dough into two balls, place each into a large bowl greased with olive oil and cover using a damp cloth. Let rise about 1 1/2-2 hours if possible, or until dough has at least doubled in size.

    For the sauce we use:

    1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
    2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    2 large garlic cloves, minced
    salt and ground black pepper

    Mix everything. Sit it somewhere to warm to room temperature for a few hours.

    We don’t really measure – we just add ingredients until a desired taste is achieved, we add oregano, a red pepper flake and a little sugar to the sauce. Try it, it may take a few tries but you will get it right. – The bread making machine does most of the work.
