Bread machine pizza dough is as easy as can be, since you're letting your bread machine do all of the work! This dough contains whole wheat flour and honey, and makes a very tender dough that is ideal for calzones or individual pizzas. You can also make this bread machine pizza dough in a food processor or stand mixer with a dough paddle attachment. And, if you prefer, you can omit the whole wheat flour and instead use 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons vital wheat gluten
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons yeast

Preparation:

  1. Combine all ingredients in the pan of a bread machine according to your bread machine's instructions (most call for putting all the liquid ingredients in first, then all the dry ingredients, and sprinkling the yeast on top of the dry ingredients).

  2. Set the bread machine to the "pizza dough" setting or the "dough" setting.

  3. Most machines put the dough through a kneading and rising cycle, and will signal when the rise is complete. Dough is then ready to use for pizza or calzones.

  4. Top or fill with ingredients of your choice and bake in an oven at 450˚F until dough is golden.
  5. Makes 4 calzones or individual pizzas.
