Pizza Dough Recipe

I have been searching for a new pizza dough recipe for a long time.  I used to use the Fleishman's Pizza Dough yeast but I ran out and they don't seem to carry it at Harris Teeter anymore :(  In my attempt to be as frugal as possible, I am using what I have which is the yeast for the bread machine.  I looked around for a bread machine recipe so that I would just throw everything in and get a pizza crust out and I thought that I would try this one from Good Cheap Eats because the bun recipe was so good!! 

Here it is mixing up in the bread maker:

Here it is on our plate and ready to eat:
White Pizza for me
Buffalo Chicken Pizza for my husband

I was going to take a picture of the whole pizza but it looked so yummy that we cut it up and started eating first.  The crust was really great and I can't wait to eat the second half that I froze.  This is a go to recipe for great pizza dough so I hope that you try it to... you won't be sorry!!  I am just sorry that we are out of flour and I can't make anymore until I get a little more.

Pizza Dough


1 1/2 cups water
1/4 cup olive oil
2 Tablespoons honey
4 1/2 cups flour
1 Tablespoon salt
1 Tablespoon yeast

Combine ingredients in the bread machine pan according to the order recommended by your machine’s manufacturer. Set on dough and start the machine, checking after ten minutes to make sure all the ingredients have been incorporated and not stuck to the side of the pan.

When dough is ready, divide into portions. This makes 2 large crusts. Shape each portion into a flat round. Place on a cookie sheet or pizza pan that has been sprinkled with corn meal. Spread pizza crust with sauce and top with cheese and toppings.
A preheated oven is key to a great crust. Up to an hour before baking, set your oven to 475 degree (but okay if you don't have as long). Bake pizzas for 8-15 minutes, depending on their size. Use the shorter baking time for smaller pizzas, the longer time for larger ones.

Note:  Let dough rise for 30 minutes and then package extra dough in plastic bags to freeze.
