Pizza Dough

I tweeted about making homemade pizza dough, and was asked to share the recipe, so here it goes!

Pizza Dough (for the bread machine)

3/4 cup water
1 tablespoon vegetable oil (or olive oil)
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon white sugar
Dash or two of garlic powder/Italian seasoning
1 tablespoon dry milk powder
2 1/4 cups bread flour
1 teaspoon active dry yeast

Place ingredients into bread machine according to the manufacturer's recommendations. Select Dough cycle and press start.

Once the dough is finished in the bread machine, remove from pan. Divide into two balls, and roll out. I usually put oil in the bottom of my pizza pan prior to putting the dough in. Let the dough rise again prior to adding toppings. Add toppings and then bake at 400 about 10 minutes, or until done. Crust should be golden brown and cheese completely melted. Make sure that you don't put too many toppings/cheese in the middle, as the dough will not be as done as the outside crust.

My favorite pizza toppings are onions, green peppers, tomatoes, fresh mushrooms, pineapple and cheese. The boys of course don't eat cheese on theirs.
