bread machine pizza dough recipe

Anybody have an outstanding bread machine pizza dough recipe? I recently made the recipe that came in the owners manual and it was totaly un-outstanding.
Any help?

  1. FYI:
    I did do the 500 degree thing that some folks posted about recently.

    1. I use the one out of this book and have had good results:

      However, it's pretty hard to get pizza oven heat at home. I think good pizza ovens clock in about twice as hot as any home oven can get. Oven to 500 and a pizza stone *is* a huge help, however.

      What kind of crust are you looking for? Thin, thick, chewy, cracker, etc?

      1. I don't understand this question. How does one bake pizza in a bread machine?

        Get a copy of the following book for an excellent source of pizza recipes.

        American Pie, My Search for the Perfect Pizza
        by Peter Reinhart
        Ten Speed Press, 2003

        This book is a two-parter. The first part is interesting reading about the actual two continent search for the best pizza. The second part contains the pizza recipes.

        BTW, forget the bread machine...get your hands into the dough...get the real feel of pizza making.

          No no, the pizza isn't baked in the bread machine- the dough is made in the bread machine, then baked in my oven.
          The book sounds interesting, thanks.

        2. This is the recipe I use. I find it to be excellent!

          In this order:

          1 cup water
          1/4 cup olive oil
          1 tsp salt
          1 tablespoon sugar
          3 1/4 cups flour
          2 1/4 tsp yeast

          Put your machine on dough cycle. Don't let the yeast come in contact with the water

          1. I use this recipe once a week, at least, and it never fails!

            I use a pizza stone and 425* oven- I don't pre-bake the stone- though I have a niece who pre-bakes it for AN HOUR!!! My pizzas come out bubbly and I let them sit for a good 6-7 minutes or more before cutting.


            2/3 c warm water (put into machine) add
            1 T olive oil, 1 t dried garlic pieces, 1/2 T fresh chopped rosemary

            measure out
            2 1/4 c ap flour
            1 t cornmeal
            1/2 t salt
            1 t sugar
            Pout that onto water and goodies in machine- add 2 t yeast

            set to dough and in a little more than an hour- a huge ball of dough will be awaiting you in machine.

            I put dough into oiled bowl /covered for another 15-20 minutes after removing from machine, for another quick rise.
