We’ve found our favorite pizza dough for our family! It is almost straight from the borrowed bread maker’s instruction booklet. We find it to be like the dough from our local pizza joint. Hint: It’s by the tracks.
Top with your favorite flavors. For this particular night, I made half meaty and the other half vegetarian. You will note the so called buffer zone so we make sure there is not any rogue meat on the vegetarian’s portion.
The dough takes about two hours total to complete with the bread maker. I’ve been doubling the batch and making two pizzas – one for dinner and one for the freezer, which is a quick way to fill our freezer with homemade meals.
