Recipe: Tomato Basil Pizza Dough (Bread Maker)

Everyone loves pizza on Friday nights and we make this crust all the time.  It's so simple to use your breadmaker for this.  It takes 1hr 20min to prepare in the breadmaker, add your toppings and bake at 475 for 12-15 minutes. 

I also serve homemade pizza on evenings when the family is busy and eating at different times.  This is a healthy meal to pop in the microwave and heat at your convenience and makes for a great packed lunch the next day.

I spread olive oil over the bottom of the pan, stretch out the dough and to top it with tomatoe sauce, a sprinkle of oregano all over, pineapple (fresh is best), cubed ham, chopped onion and mozzerella cheese.  The crust comes out a beautiful orange colour, chewy but not puffy.  There'll be no leftover crust on anyone's plates when you serve this.

from "The Bread Machine Baker"

3 teaspoons or 1 package of yeast
3 cups bread flour
1 cup tomatoe juice
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 Tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons salt
2 Tablespoons chopped basil (I use dried basil)

Select the "Dough" or "Manual" mode on your bread machine.  Add ingredients in the order listed and push "Start". 

This makes two 9" pizzas.  Freeze them, or top and bake at 475 degrees for 12-15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly and the crust is lightly browned.  Note:  This only need to sit for one rising.

  1. This dough sounds amazing! I bought a bread maker from a yard sale 2 years ago and haven't used it yet! I think I should dig it out of the basement and get it going! We love pizza night but we don't like grocery store crusts, so we resort to pizza delivery. So, we don't have pizza night too often. With homemade crust, we can fit it in the menu plan more often!

  2. I have been wanting a bread maker and now have an even better reason why

  3. Sarah, that dough looks absolutely divine! I love making my own dough. It's so easy and so much better than the store bought stuff.

  4. Great blog! This pizza looks great, I have yet to make my own crust for pizza. I wish I had a bread maker, this looks easy and fantastic! I'm following you now, thanks!!
