please share with me how you make your homemade pizza. do you make your dough in the bread machine? i would love some tips...i've been wanting to try it that way for awhile, i just haven't done it yet.

Actually that is one dough recipe I don't make in the bread machine because it doesn't have to rise. Here is the recipe:

1 T active dry yeast
1 C warm water (105 to 115* F)
1 t sugar
1 t salt
2 T oil (I use olive oil)
2 1/2 C flour (I often use whole wheat)

Dissolve yeast in water, add in other ingredients and mix. Dump onto floured surface, knead until smooth (about 5 minutes). Roll out and press onto greased pizza pan. Add toppings, bake at 450* for 12-15 min. until crust looks crispy and lightly browned.

This recipe is perfect for one grown-up sized pizza or 4 mini-pizzas that your boys can make themselves. My kiddos love kneading the dough and picking out what toppings they will put on theirs.
