PIzza Dough


I've had a few requests for my pizza dough recipe. This is a recipe I have modified based on the recipe that came with my bread machine recipe book.

Pizza Dough
1 & 1/2 cups beer or water (I use water - I have used beer but find that it makes absolutely no difference to the taste for some unknown reason)
1 & 1/2 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. sugar
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 cups multi grain bread flour
1 cup spelt flour
1 & 1/4 cup white bread flour
2 tsp. of yeast

Set bread maker to dough setting and press go!

    Mmm...looks good. I'll definitely have to try that - how many crusts does it make?

    Hi Aurora's mom

    I can usually get two pizzas (or two meals) out of that crust. (depends on the size of your pizza pan)

    funny that the beer doesn't change the flavour at all?!?

    I love making pizza dough with my bread maker. One of these days I need to make extra so I can slip it in the freezer and have it on hand whenever i need it.

    I don't have a bread machine, yet. So I have to make dough the old fashioned way.
    I laughed at your previous post about Curtis. I've never seen the show either, but I can totally relate. I have a few celebrity crushes myself. Hello? It's not like I'm 15. I'm over 40! Glad I'm not the only one. *wink*

    HI Carrie - glad there are others who can relate to being star struck. I don't think it is a bad thing - kind of hopeless romantics, I suspect.

    Hey Jewell - I will be over when I make some dough - and I'm not talking pizza dough!
