I Found my Pizza Dough Recipe

Hello pizza fans.  After our recent birthday party bash I though I would share my pizza dough recipe with all of you.  My family loves pizzas, and they especially love it when it’s cooked on the charcoal grill with the Kettle Pizza attachment. If you click-through to this link for the Kettle Pizza attachment you should see a video done by my Travel Man.

After some trial and error the last few weeks I think I have found a recipe for pizza dough that is great.  I have been working to find a pizza dough recipe that I can make in my bread maker.  Then I will be able to make the pizza dough and freeze it ahead of time.  This will give me a  pizza dough inventory at a moments notice.  The challenge was to find a recipe that had good texture and would freeze well.

So the recipe that I really found that I like goes like this: and remember this is intended for a bread maker.

  • 3/4 c water about 110 degrees
  • 1 tbsp veg. oil
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  •  2-1/4 c bread flour
  • 1 tbsp dry milk
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp dry yeast

Place the ingredients into your bread maker in the order listed above.  Liquids first, then all of the dry ingredients except the yeast make a small little well in the dry ingredients, and add the yeast in this spot.  Start your bread maker on the “dough” setting and let it go.  My bread maker takes about 1 hour and 20 minutes.

Once the dough was finished I sliced it in half, rubbed with some olive oil and placed into sandwich baggies, and then in the freezer.  One batch of this dough makes enough crust for two medium-sized pizzas, thin crust of course!  We were cooking our pizza on the stone in the grill so if they were a little misshapen when we rolled them out it was no big deal.

I’m really happy with this recipe.  I liked the texture of the dough when it came out of the bread maker.  If you have a bread maker and a craving for pizza try this out and enjoy!

    Those pizzas you/we make are great! I admire your experimental adventures! I have a few questions:
    1. Wow…1:20?! I had no idea! Why does it take so long? It mixes the whole time?
    2. Why do you rub it with olive oil? Is it to prevent the bag from sticking?

    Thanks, Renee!

    • Thanks for all ofyour great comments Elaine. The bread in the breadmaker mixes and then “rests”, mixes and “rests”. The olive oil is to keep it from sticking to the bag, and so it doesn’t have a chance to dry out once you are thawing the dough.
