This is a tasty pizza dough...and yes, I have thrown it into my bread maker in the dough cycle to make it even easier!

I made this tonight but modified it. Instead of 1 envelope savory herb with garlic soup mix, I used 2 1/2 tsp garlic powder and only 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese (no time to buy a new bottle). It was really yummy and my husband enjoyed it. The crust is thick enough but soft and very tasty! Thank you for the great recipe!
- 2 1⁄2 teaspoons active dry yeast
- 1 2⁄3 cups water
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 4 cups bread flour, plus more for kneading
- 1 envelope savory herb with garlic soup mix
- 1 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
- 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus more for the pans and bowl
Directions See How It's Made
- In a small bowl, sprinkle the yeast over the water and stir in the sugar.
- Let the mixture stand until it bubbles, about 10 minutes.
- Place the flour, soup mix, and cheese in a large mixing bowl or food processor fitted with a steel blade.
- Add the yeast mixture and oil and stir with a wooden spoon or process until the mixture forms a ball If mixing by hand, turn the dough out onto a floured board and knead it until it is smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes.
- Oil the inside of a medium mixing bowl and turn the dough into the bowl, coating it with the oil.
- Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the dough rise in a warm, dry spot until it is doubled in bulk, about 60-90 minutes Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- Coat 2 pizza pans with olive oil.
- Punch the dough down, cut it in half, and form it into two balls.
- Working on a floured counter, flatten each piece of dough with a rolling pin, rolling it out into a 12" circle.
- Place each dough round on a prepared pizza pan Top the dough with your favorite toppings and bake the pizza until the crust is crispy, about 20-25 minutes.
