This dough is fantastic! The dough is made with a bread maker, but I bet it can be done without!
1 cup water
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp butter
3 cups bread flour (I used all-purpose flour)
2 tsp yeast
Place ingredients in order in the bread machine. Start dough cycle. At the end of the dough cycle remove dough from the bread maker. Place on floured counter and let rest for 10 minutes (the last one I made I actually left it to rest for a lot longer than 10 minutes, maybe 30-45, and it seemed to bulk up during that time which helped to make a better crust around the edges). Shape into a 15-16 inch round pizza pan.
Add your topping (sauce, cheese, pepperoni, etc). Bake at 475°F for 20 minutes or until done.
Ok, my pan was only about 14 inches which made the crust a little thicker but was great. My husband said it was better than any store-bought or ordered pizza!
This recipe came from the instruction manual for my Hamilton Beach Bread Machine.
