About this recipe:I just adore this very simple to make pizza dough. It has a gorgeous slightly different taste, thanks to the addition of a little flat beer. You can add any herbs and spices to enhance the flavour.
Add beer, butter, sugar, salt, flour and yeast to the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select Dough setting, and press Start.
Remove dough from bread machine when cycle is complete. Roll or press dough to cover a prepared pizza tin. Brush lightly with olive oil. Cover and let stand 15 minutes.
Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas 6.
Bake pizza in the oven for 5 minutes, before adding toppings.
Remove from the oven. Spread sauce and toppings on top of the lightly baked dough. Return to the oven until crust is lightly brown and crispy on the outside, about 24 minutes.
For something a little different, try adding a little garlic and oregano to the bread machine dry ingredients. You can simply add any herbs and spices to suit your mood, the possibilities with this dough are endless!
This dough is enough for 1 large deep crust pizza or 2 thin crust pizza's.
Made this last night - turned out fantastic.. I put tomato puree on the base and added cheese...put in the oven for 5 mins.. then added some baked beans... was delicious. So much cheaper than shop bought pizzas and tastier . Plus I'm not adding any preservatives to the bases. - 06 Dec 2014
