Bread Machine Pizza Dough

I flat-out absolutely cannot bake. I’ve tried and tried. I am missing whatever gene is required to make perfect bread, dough, rolls or biscuits from scratch. So that’s why I have a bread machine. I’ve been using mine more and more lately, and one of the recipes I love to make in it is this pizza dough.

This dough is soft and a bit sweet, but with a little heat too. The bottom gets nice and crunchy while the top stays as soft as you can imagine.
Bread Machine Pizza DoughThis recipe makes a large pizza. I usually cut the dough in half and make two medium sized pizzas, cooking them on my Weber Performer grill using a pizza stone. If you are cooking your pizza on a stone, make sure to lightly dust the stone with corn flour before placing the dough onto it. It prevents sticking and helps you get a nice crunchy crust.
