Homemade Pizza with a Bread Machine

Homemade Pizza with a Bread Machine

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, and also have used this recipe for dough that came with the machine. Pizza is one of my weaknesses when it comes to food, and this recipe makes it easy for me to really 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.

    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!

    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.

    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.
