Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
1                cup  water
1/2      teaspoon  salt
1           teaspoon  sugar
1/4           cup  olive oil
3               cups  bread flour
1 1/2      teaspoons  instant yeast

Place all of the ingredients in your machines fully assembled pan (with
the exception of those ingredients listed under "add at beep"). Select the
basic or white cycle and press start.

About 10 minutes after your machine has started kneading the dough you
need to open the lid and check the consistency of the dough. The dough
should be starting to form a smooth round ball. When you touch the dough
with your finger it should be slightly tacky to the touch however no dough
should remain on your finger when you pull it away.

If you dough it too dry add 1 tbsp. of water at a time (allowing the
machine to knead for a minutes or so between additions) until the dough is
the proper consistency. If the dough is too wet add 1 tbsp. of flour at a
time (allowing the machine to knead for a minute or so between additions)
until the dough is the proper consistency. These types of adjustments are
not unusual and don't mean there is something wrong with the recipe.

If this recipe has "add at beep" ingredients you need to either turn on
the add ingredients beep function, choose your machines cycle that has an
add ingredients beep or if your machine has neither of these you need to
add these ingredients during the last 10 minutes of your machines final
kneading cycle.

After the machine has beeped to indicate the bread is done, preheat oven
to 450 degrees. Grease a 12-inch deep dish pan with olive oil or spray it
with a cooking spray. Roll or hand stretch the dough into a circle so that
it will completely cover the bottom of the pan. Pull the dough up around
the edges of the pan so that a slight lip is formed. Cover the pan  with a
towel and let the dough rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes. While
the dough is rising, prepare your toppings and grate your cheese; set
aside. Prick the dough several times with a fork and bake the crust for 5
minutes. Remove the crust from the oven, and using a brush or your
fingers, lighly cover the crust with  olive oil. Layer the ingredients in
this order; sauce, cheese, meats, vegetables and seasonings. Leave a 1/2
inch border around the rim of the pizza. Place pizza on bottom rack of the
oven and bake for 5 minutes, after which time, either move the pizza to
the upper part of the oven or lower the temperature to 400  degrees. Bake
for another 25 to 30 minutes, until the crust is golden brown.
