Pizza is one of my all time favorite foods. Is that pathetic?
If you have a bread machine, you need to make this pizza. Pronto.
It was a great day when I stumbled across this recipe.
3/4 cup lukewarm water (100° F)
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 tsp minced garlic cloves
2 cups bread flour
1 tsp white sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp active dry yeast
Place the ingredients into the pan of a bread machine in the order listed. Select dough cycle, and press start. When finished, remove the dough and knead into a tight ball on a lightly floured surface. Let rest for about 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 400°. Stretch the dough out to fit your pizza pan. (13 inch pan works great.) Let rise for about 20 minutes. Top with sauce, cheese, and desired toppings. Bake around 20 minutes, or until crust is lightly browned on the bottom. (I think it works best to bake the crust and sauce for around 8 minutes, then add cheese and toppings.)
