Pizza Dough

I know you were really excited about this just by the title but you HAVE to have a breadmaker for the dough to work right. I'm sorry if you don't have one, but if you do, go ahead and brush off the thick layer of dust that it has on it and bust it out. I have some new dough recipes for the breadmaker! I used to HATE making pizza. Now I do it every Friday (I bought a breadmaker just to make this dough). Hope you enjoy. This recipe came from a great friend here- Sharleen! Thanks Shar!

Pizza Dough
**Make sure you put everything into the breadmaker in this order and the yeast in a little hole you make in the flour at the top so it doesn't touch the water.
1 cup & 2 Tbsp warm water
2 Tbsp olive oil (any oil will probably do-Sharleen uses vegetable)
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
2 1/2 tsp yeast
Place all ingredients in breadmaker and push dough cycle. Mine takes 1 hr 30 min.
Bake at 400 degrees on LOWEST rack possible (middle if you have a bottom coil in your oven).
Place on stone or pan, whatever you have. This recipe makes 2 med/lg pizzas or one large with really thick crust. Add pizza sauce not spaghetti sauce and toppings. Bake for 18-23 minutes or until you like it!!

Made this for dinner tonight, yummy. I'm always making home-made pizza and decided to try this crust instead of the ones I normally make. This will be a keeper.
