Bread Machine Homemade Pizza Dough

Homemade Pizza Dough
Traditional pizza dough adds an easy-homemade touch to a thin crust pizza. Using a prepared pizza sauce, you can make and bake this pizza in an hour.
Yield 2 (12-inch) pizzas



  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (0.25oz) package (7g) or 2 1/4 teaspoons Red Star Active Dry Yeast
  • Cornmeal (for dusting pan)


  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Have water at 80°F, all others at room temperature. Place ingredients (except cornmeal) in pan in the order recommended by manufacturer. Select Dough/Manual cycle. Check dough consistency after 5 minutes of kneading. The dough should be in a soft, tacky ball. If it is dry and stiff, add water, 1/2 to 1 tablespoon at a time. If it is too wet and sticky, add 1 tablespoon of flour at a time. At the end of the last kneading cycle, press STOP/CLEAR, remove dough from pan. Continue with next step.
  • Place dough in greased bowl; cover and let rest 15 minutes.
  • Divide dough into 2 equal parts. Press each half into a generously greased 12-inch round pizza pan sprinkled with cornmeal.
  • Pre-bake for 10-12 minutes until edges of crust begin to turn light golden brown. Add desired toppings and bake an additional 15 minutes.
