    This was the first pizza dough I have ever made in the bread maker. I followed the ingredients but did change how I made this a little. I did find the dough to be very sticky and quite difficult to handle. I kneaded it with some extra flour and then left it wrapped in a warm place to rise for about 15 minutes. I then rolled out the dough and lined the pizza pan. Did not use the olive oil, but cooked the dough in the oven for 5 minutes before adding the topping. My family loved this pizza and I will certainly be using the recipe again. Thank you for sharing!!!  -  12 Jan 2013


    My family loves this pizza dough. I was having trouble w/it not as crispy as my family likes so I bake it for 5 mins., take it out of the oven and then we dress it up w/toppings and put it back in. It's awesome.  -  24 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very good recipe, measurements are "just right", but for a bit more flavor...add 1 tsp. garlic powder, and 1 tsp. basil to dry ingredients. I was in a bit of a time crunch, and couldn't wait the 2.5 hours so here are a few tips... Let the bread machine kneed the dough until a soft, smooth ball forms, 5-10 minutes. Then, turn bread machine off and place the dough into a bowl lightly covered with olive oil or cooking spray. Put a damp towel over the bowl, and set the entire bowl in a warm place - such as an oven that has been "warmed" and shut off. Let dough rise for 30 minutes, punch it down and then roll out r toss. Let rest for 2-3 minutes, then transfer to pan or stone, and bake. Saves you almost 1.5 hours, including bake time!!!!!!  -  18 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
