Recipe By : Serving Size : 8 Preparation Time :0:00 Categories : Bread Machine Dough Cycle Pizza Crusts 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. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Per Serving (excluding unknown items): 249 Calories; 8g Fat (27.7% calories from fat); 6g Protein; 38g Carbohydrate; trace Dietary Fiber; 0mg Cholesterol; 136mg Sodium.
