Homemade Pizza

Pin It

Today I am giving step by step instructions on how to make Bread Machine Pizza Dough and Homemade Pizza Sauce. This meal is so much fun to make with the kiddos so feel free to let them join in.
This is absolutely the best bread machine pizza dough I have ever made!
This recipe makes 2 pizzas, or you can roll out several individual pizzas.

Bread Machine Dough Ingredients
original recipe found here

2 teaspoons dried granulated yeast
3 cups all purpose flour or bread flour
1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
2 tablespoons Honey
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
1 cup water, plus
2 tablespoons water
You can also use this pizza dough to make calzones.
The most amazing Pizza Sauce Ingredients
2- 6oz can tomato paste
12 fl oz of warm water
3 TBS grated Parmesan cheese
3 garlic cloves minced or 3/4 tsp garlic powder
2 TBS honey
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp marjoram
1 tsp basil
¼ tsp of black pepper
a pinch of cayenne pepper
¼ tsp red pepper flakes
Kosher Salt to taste
Mix all ingredients in a bowl and set aside.

My family loves extra pizza sauce for dipping,
but if you do not cut all ingredients in half.
Directions for Dough
1. Place all the ingredients in the order they are listed into the bread machine.

2. Select dough cycle or pizza dough cycle. The following two directions do not apply for those who have a pizza dough cycle.

3. When the dough cycle is complete, take the dough out of the machine and place it in a well greased bowl. Roll the dough around to coat the dough in the oil.

4. Cover and leave to rise in a warm place for about ½ of an hour.

5. Knead the dough lightly and adding flour as needed.

6. Cut the dough in half and roll until you have reached your desired thickness. Roll into any shape! Tip- When rolling rub flour on your rolling pin and flip the dough several times rolling out each side.

7. Then fold the sides creating a crust.
8. Place dough on foil and place in a preheated oven at 450 F for about 5 min.
Take the pizza out of the oven. Add pizza sauce, sprinkle with mozzarella cheese, and then add generous toppings of your choice. Keep the pizza on the foil and sprinkle top with parmesan cheese and oregano.

Toppings for this pizza includes: hamburger meat, diced red peppers, spinach, diced purple onions, diced baby bella mushrooms, and black olives. All these ingredients were sautéed, except the black olives, before placed on the pizza dough.
9. Place pizza in oven for about 10-15 minutes. Cooking times will vary from gas to electric ovens. When the crust is stable enough remove the foil and let the pizza cook for an additional 5 minutes or so. Removing the foil for the last 5 minutes will create a crispy crust.

Once your pizza is done call your family to the table and enjoy the fresh taste of homemade pizza made by you!
