Why buy store bought pizza dough or frozen pizza when you can make this easy Bread Machine Pizza Dough Recipe at home! With just 5 ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen, you can have fresh, homemade pizza!
Pizza is one of our family’s all time favorite foods. In our minds, you really can’t go wrong with pizza. Whether it’s just basic crust, red sauce, and cheese, or whether you slather it in meats and/or vegetables, or make a “themed” pizza like Taco Pizza or Greek Pizza it is all around delicious.
We have our favorite pizza places but we have also grown fond of making our own. It is MUCH less expensive and each pizza can be customized with ingredients of your liking.
I have to admit, homemade pizza dough is so much better. I used to buy the pre-made pizza dough that I could just roll out until I found this super easy bread machine pizza dough recipe. It has only five ingredients that you mix with water, follow your bread machine instructions and it is ready in about an hour.
I love using the bread machine because there is just one step and the bread machine does the rest of the work.
We love to change up our pizza a bit. Sometimes, it’s fun to get creative with your homemade dough. We used this Bread Machine Pizza Dough on our Mummy Calzone during Halloween time.
The best part is, it will look like you spent hours preparing it, and it is really just a few simple steps. Using our easy homemade pizza sauce is perfect, it goes together in minutes and tastes like you cooked it all day. It literally takes five minutes to prepare and will knock the socks off of any canned sauce. We know you don’t have a lot of time to spare, but that doesn’t mean your food has to lack in quality.
Another one of our favorite variations to the ordinary pizza are these Homemade Pizza Pockets. I promise you, once you try these, you won’t ever buy the frozen ones again. They are so easy to make and the best part is that you can customize the ingredients to each person’s favorites.
So you see, preparing a variety of delicious, homemade pizza recipes is so much easier than you thought! Get out that bread machine and impress your friends and family for a fun, easy meal.
