Bread Machine Pizza Dough

Bread Machine Pizza Dough - Love Bakes Good Cakes

Our menu plans and schedule are a little bit messed up right now. I'm a "stockpiler" ..... No, not like the kind you see on an episode of Hoarders! I believe in keeping a very well stocked pantry. I hate the idea of not having whatever I need - and if I decide on a whim to make something, I don't want to have to run to the store to get it. Since we decided that we are moving to Arizona, I have bought less and I am trying very hard to use what we already have. I really don't want to move a bunch of food ... and I hate even more, the idea of wasting it. I am conflicted ..... the stockpiler in me sees my supply getting low and my logic kicks in and says don't you dare buy all that extra stuff. *sigh*

So you know where this is going, right? I believe you can put most anything on a pizza ... in a bun ... or in a tortilla - and have yourself a meal. I have a lot of flour (I buy 25 lbs. at a time!) and yeast (I buy 2 lbs. at a time - What can I say, I bake ... a lot!) to use - so any guesses what we're making? 

If I let my family, they would probably eat pizza 2 or 3 times a week. No joke! We love coming up with new pizza ideas .... sometimes, the crazier, the better! I have searched high and low to find the "perfect" pizza crust ...... Personally, I like Pizza Hut's crust - it's crisp, with just enough chew to it. I literally feel like I have tried every copy-cat recipe known to man - and about a year or two ago, I found "the one". I refuse to use any other dough recipe. Why mess with perfection?! Sometimes, I season it a bit differently with some Italian seasoning ... but, this is by far (in my humble opinion), the best pizza dough EVER. It's not exactly like Pizza Hut, but very close with the crispy crust and a good "chew". 

So, what are ya waiting for? Give it a try! You'll be glad you did! ;)

  7. Hi Jamie,
    Found you at the Let's Get Social Sunday Linky Party and am a new follower. Pizza is always a good meal, or snack. The crust is the deal maker or breaker and yours sounds fantastic.
    Bye for now, Darlene
