Pizza Crust Dough in the Bread Machine

The other day I was looking for a few recipes for my bread machine which I have neglected.  My friend Kelly and her husband Jay dropped off a little cookbook that came with their machine so I couldn’t wait to try a recipe from it.  We love pizzas on the grill, so when my husband said he wanted that for dinner last weekend, I decided to make the dough from this recipe.

Can’t beat the bread machine for getting the dough ready!  We were doing some bathroom renovation work and the machine did the hard work while we were otherwise occupied.  All I had to do was shape it into pizza and voila!  The flavor was awesome and the pizza….well the picture speaks for itself!  We topped ours with pizza sauce, boiled crawfish tails, bacon, mini pepperoni (as you can see from my daughter’s slice), goat cheese, mozzarella, onions and fresh lemon boy tomatoes from our garden!

Pizza Crust Dough
Recipe adapted from:  Toastmaster Bread Machine Cookbook

3/4 cup warm water
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp dry powdered milk
2 1/4 cups bread flour
1 tsp Red Star active dry yeast
1 tsp Italian Seasonings (dry)
A few shakes of garlic and onion powders

Place all ingredients (in that order) in the bread machine and select your dough setting.  Do something else for a while.  Once it’s done, empty onto a lightly floured surface and press into a 12-inch pizza.  Either top with desired toppings and bake at 425 for 20 minutes, or do like we like to do and throw that bad boy on the BBQ pit!!
