Recipe by Katzen
A flavourful pizza dough that I often make ahead and refrigerate (can be frozen as well). Using the bread machine makes homemade pizza crust extremely easy! I use this dough for flatbread for bruschetta, as well. This recipe makes two 12" thin crust pizzas, one 14" thick crust pizza, or one 15x10" thin crust "party" pizza. You can make this a wheat crust by using half whole wheat and half white flour. (Prep time does not include bread machine processing time.)

Made this exactly as stated except without the corn meal! This was great using recipe#388875 as the sauce, with some mushrooms and fresh basil on top (turkey pepperoni for DH!) Thanks for posting Katzen! We loved it! Oh and we pre baked it, added topping and then baked it again and it was perfect! Made for Veg*n Swap May 2010!

Directions See How It's Made
- Add all ingredients (except cornmeal) into breadmaker in the order suggested by your breadmachine manufacturer. Process on Dough setting.
- Sprinkle cornmeal on pizza pan.
- Turn dough out onto floured board, and knead in any flour necessary to make the dough easy to handle. Roll out dough and place on pizza pan.
