Berks County Bread Machine Pizza Crust

I have tried dozens of pizza crust recipes, and this one stands out as the very best as far as taste, and ease of preparation. I usually make about a dozen and freeze as necessary to always have them on hand when needed (which is often).


  1. Add the ingredients to the bread machine in the order given by the manufacturer (liquids first, followed by drys, and finally yeast).
  2. Process on the "dough" cycle for 1 1/2 hours then turn out onto a floured surface.
  3. Divide into (2) equal sized dough balls. Knead each ball in your hands for a few minutes, then set under a towel for 15-20 minutes to rest.
  4. Stretch or roll each dough ball seperately into a 14-inch circle, and prebake on a lightly oiled pizza pan, or cornmeal dusted pizza stone for approximately 5 minutes in a 375 degree oven.
  5. Refrigerate crusts up to a week. Freeze for even longer if necessary.

Great crust! I did the prebake on the pizza stone for both crusts and froze one of them. The other I filled with sauce, cheese, pepperoni and sausage and baked it at 425 for about 14 minutes. Dee-licious! Thanks!

DH rolled the dough and he told me it was very easy to work with. And the crust was perfect, great taste. Thanks FinFan :) Made for Holiday tag

This was so good, and very easy to do. The taste was delicious and was simple for a beginner at making their own pizza dough like me! This made enough for two pizzas so I froze one for later. We eat pizza at least once a week and this is now our recipe! Thanks for a great recipe!
