Bread Machine Pizza Dough {Recipe}

Bread Machine Pizza Dough from MomOnTimeout.com | Easy and delicious! #recipe

This Bread Machine Pizza Dough recipe is near and dear to my heart because much like slow cooker recipes, it requires very little work :)  If you don’t have a bread machine you may want to consider buying one because they are a HUGE time saver and there is no limit to the number of recipes you can make.  This recipe makes 1 pizza so I usually double it so we can have leftovers.  It also make fabulous bread sticks so there is also that option.   We really enjoy this pizza dough recipe and I know you will too! 

Ingredients:
2 c flour (I like to use bread flour but all purpose and even a combination of AP and wheat flour works)
1 Tbls butter, softened
1 Tbls sugar
1 tsp yeast
1 tsp salt
1/2 c plus 2 Tbls water (105-110 degrees)

Doubled (for 2 pizzas):
4 c flour
2 Tbls butter, softened
2 Tbls sugar
2 tsp yeast
2 tsp salt
1 1/3 c water (105-110 degrees)

Directions:

Add all ingredients into your bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer.  Make sure that the water is warm enough to proof the yeast (about 105-110 degrees).

Turn your bread machine to the dough setting and let ‘er go!  After a couple minutes check on your dough.  Make sure that the ingredients are thoroughly combined and that the dough is not too wet or too dry.  Depending on where you live and the flour you use there can be some variances in the dough.  If it’s too dry, add 1 tsp of water at a time.  If the dough is too sticky, add 1 tsp of flour at a time.

The dough will raise nicely during the dough cycle.  Isn’t it pretty?  It never ceases to amaze me what a little yeast can do :)

After the bread machine is done (mine takes about 90 minutes on the dough cycle) – dump the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and work it until you achieve your desired shape.

Depending on the size of pizza pan or pizza stone you are using, you may not need all of the dough.

I like to lightly grease my pizza pan and dust with cornmeal.  Make up your pizza and bake at 400-425 degrees for 18-25 minutes.  You are looking for bubbly cheese and lightly browned crust.  If you like a crunchier  crust, brush some olive oil on the crust before baking.

    Made this for supper tonight and the whole family loved it. I doubled the recipe and made 1 pizza and bread sticks. Thanks for the awesome recipe.

  18. love it!!!

  19. Just made this recipe last week and it was amazing. The crust was tasty and it seemed to rise well. I’ve had trouble making pizza dough that ends up being tough but this one was just perfect. I will be making it again for sure!

  20. Made this last night, super good! Will be my go to dough recipe from now on! I wrote about it in my blog!
    http://sweetpeasandskittles.blogspot.com/2012/12/pizza.html

  21. Any specific instructions for making the breadsticks

  22. Trish,
    Thanks for the recipe! Living in rural Oklahoma, I made the classic mistake of starting a recipe without checking the ingredients in the pantry! So, I included a package of Jiffy cornbread mix and about 1/2 cup of oatmeal. It turned out great – kind of a multigrain crust.

  23. I’m going to have to try this; I’ve been on the lookout for a good pizza dough recipe. And this one looks pretty easy too with the bread machine doing all the mixing. Thanks so much for linking up to Inspire Me Wednesday, Trish!

  24. Hi, I just wanted to let you know I made this today, and my family loved our pizzas! I make homemade pizzas frequently but have always bought the crust…organic yes, but I still wanted to find a good recipe to make my own instead, and this one is a keeper! Thank you!

  25. I really enjoy your blog;thanks for the wonderful information

  26. Tries this recipe last night and it was awesome. There was enough dough left over to make my son a little personal sized pizza for lunch today.

  27. Made this over the weekend and loved it – thank you! :)

  28. Do you know if this freezes well?

  29. What bread machine do you own? We are on a strict budget and can not afford to buy a poor machine the first time. :)

    • Hi Sarah! I’ve had my bread machine for almost 9 years now (it was a wedding present). It’s an Oster – they don’t even make that model any more but I haven’t had any problems with it. If you have a Costco or Sam’s Club near by I would suggest buying from there because if you have any problems you can easily return it. Good luck!

  30. I was looking online for a different bread machine pizza crust recipe and found yours. I love it, and its going to be my goto recipe now. Best of all I can roll it out and its the perfect consistency. Not too tough or soft and tacky. I roll it out in a rectangle and put it on a cookie sheet to feed my crew. It lifts and drapes like a dream. Thanks!

  31. I love homemade pizza and the crust is what stops me from making it all the time. I will be trying this as soon as I unpack my bread maker! Thanks.

  32. Hi Trish! Your recipe looks amazing! We make homemade pizza night every Friday and while I have a fairly tasty dough recipe I’ve been using, yours looks scrumptious. ♥ My problem is that I do not own a bread machine. Any tips on how I can use your recipe without a machine?

  33. Can you double this ina standard sized bread machine? I dont want it to run out of room when it rises! Also – any harm in letting it sit in the machine after the dough cycle finishes?would love to put this in before leaving the house today but not sure how long the dough cycle takes. Thanks!

  34. Thank you for this post. I’ve used it around 20 times. It also makes delicious rolls. Thanks again!

  35. I like this recipe very much,the pizza that i make according dis recipe is delicious.My husband eat a lot.Thank a lot for sharing!!!

    Can this be frozen? I’d like to make up several batches and then freeze it for later use.

    • Usually for bread and doughs you want to freeze before the second rise which is actually occurring in the bread machine. I would say make one and give a try before making up a whole bunch. I’ve never done it before and I would LOVE to know if it works out for you :)

  37. This may be a stupid question, but what kind of yeast are you using!?

  38. Just wanted to let you know your pizza crust was the first I made/tried and Iv since tried a few different recipes but the family says they like this crust the best! :) I almost always bake it for all of 5min and then put my toppings on.. Then flash freeze it for about an hour before wrapping it with Saran Wrap and then foil.
    We have family movie night every weekend and so far it’s a hit! I work night shift so the times I’m here for it- I’m usually just waking up so i don’t have the time to make it the day of! So i make it on a night off earlier in the week when i gotta be up all night adjusting my sleep anyway! And that way my family can just pop it out of the freezer and bake away when I’m not around :) saves the $25/wk they were racking up before I started making these!
    Tonight I made a small single batch of kinda thick square shaped partially cooked dough with garlic butter/parm cheese and mozzarella cheese.. Hoping they’ll turn out when all is said and done- (a Pan of bread sticks is the idea.. They’ll be cut when cooked- single sticks didn’t freeze/reheat so well so hoping this works!)
    My only issue has been the super stretchy resilient qualities when I first try to stretch it out but after a quick google search- I found if I’m a lil more patient and let it rest more- roll out, cover it- wait 10min.. Then do it again it’ll work easier. Or if I leave it in the bread machine longer (it’ll raise all the way to the top!).
    Anyway- thanks so much!! :)
