Homemade Pizza with a Bread Machine

Pizza has always been one of my favorite foods, and now I can make it at home. I love the versatility of this pizza to fit it to everyone's tastes.

A few years ago, at my wedding shower, I was gifted with a bread machine. I didn’t realize just how much I would end up using it! I love making fresh bread to go with a lot of our meals. But more than that, I use this dough recipe that came with the machine. The original recipe did not include the extra seasonings, but we like the added flavor that it adds to the pizza crust.

Pizza is one of my weaknesses when it comes to food. This recipe makes it easy for me to customize dinner to just how we want it. For example, I like ricotta cheese on mine, but most pizza delivery places don’t use ricotta. I’m sure you could also make this recipe by hand, but I have never really done that so can’t tell you what to do differently.

The boys get so excited when it’s pizza night. They love helping me roll out the dough and pick out their toppings. Well, I should say they like to help prepare Justin’s because he uses all the toppings. The boys and I only like cheese on our pizza.

The recipe for the dough makes a large amount. These are usually two or three meals for each of us, and that’s with cutting this dough into quarters when we bake. Try this pizza recipe the next time you have guests over. There is enough dough to make an individual serving for at least eight people, and it can be a fun time to each make your own pizza.

Step by Step

Set up the bread machine as directed and add all of the ingredients except your pizza toppings to the baking pan. Select the dough setting on your bread machine and let it run through that cycle. Machines will vary. Mine takes one and a half hours to make the dough.

When the bread machine is done, preheat the oven to 400F. Lightly flour a clean working surface and remove the dough from the pan onto the counter. Knead the dough a few times by hand. Gently roll out the dough into a large circle or square.

Use a pizza cutter to cut the dough into smaller pieces. We like to make at least one pizza for each person. Smaller pieces are also easier to work with and move for baking.

Spread the pizza sauce and desired toppings out on each piece of pizza.

Transfer to a warm cooking stone or baking sheet.

Bake for about 15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the crust is cooked.

    Great pictures of the pizza! Have you tried different flour types?
    My wife and I are always experimenting with whole grains and gluten free flours.

    1. Thank you! We have tried it with all-purpose flour and whole wheat flour. I don’t really taste a difference, so we usually stick with the whole wheat flour. I haven’t tried any gluten-free because no one in my household has a gluten allergy so haven’t needed to try it. If you try it, let me know how it works, my grandmother has celiacs and would love to know she could make some pizza!

  4. Well, we learn something new every day, I did not know about bread machine and after reading your post and looking at it, I am going to get one. I love the picture of your son watching the pizza.

  5. We have been making pizza at home now but with store bought pizza dough. Looking at your recipe, makes it look easy to make pizza dough. Will give it a try the next time we make pizza.

  6. I haven’t thought of making pizza at home before. Your instruction is so well-written that I’m keen on trying it out. Thanks a lot!

  7. It is amazing to set a bread machine on a dough setting, and push the start button, and the pizza dough is ready. This is perfect solution for busy moms! My brother loves pizza, this can be a good gift for him.

  8. We make our own pizza too, because it gives us the chance to choose our own toppings. I don’t have a bread machine but it sure is great to own one. I will have to think about getting one myself.

  9. My kids are huge fans of pizza and I’ve always wanted to make some from scratch. I should consider this!

  10. My family loves when I make homemade pizza. I’ve never used a bread machine before. I would love to use it someone day.
