I sometimes add in some dried herbs like oregano or basil it really adds tons of extra flavor, this recipes makes a lovely soft chewy crust and I don't think you will searching any further once you try this dough, it also makes great calzones :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place all ingredients into the pan in order, or according to your manfacturer's directions (making certain to sprinkle the dry milk powder over the warm water).
  2. Press the dough cycle and start.
  3. Check the dough after about 4-5 minutes of kneading to see is more water or flour is needed to create a soft semi-sticky dough.
  4. When the machine signals the end of the cycle, remove the dough and knead gently into a tight ball on a lightly floured surface.
  5. Cover and let rest for 20 minutes (or at this point you can refrigerate for up to 24 hours or freeze).
  6. Stretch into desired size for your pizza pan.
  7. *Note* for a thicker crust, let the dough rise on the pan covered with a clean tea towel for about 20 minutes before topping with sauce and ingredients.

Awesome! I knew when I needed a pizza dough recipe to look to Kittencal. I was right. This was fantastic. Usually I dont like pizza dough, it has no flavor, but this was full of fantastic flavor, and great all on its own. I used the 1 tb garlic, and felt it was perfect. It gave it great flavor, but not an overwhelming garlic flavor. I did have to add about 1/3 cup more flour to the bread machine, and used another 1/4 cup when kneading. It made a very tender dough. I baked for 8 minutes in a 400 degree oven, then added the toppings and baked again. I am going to make it again this weekend and use the dough to make breadsticks for spaghetti. Great recipe!

Absolutely amazing! Made a margherita pizza tonight with this crust. I added fresh basil to it and used half the crust for a really good sized pizza. Put the other half in the freezer for next week. Other than adding the basil, didn't change a thing and it turned out perfectly.

Kittencal, you've done it again! I didn't see this when I looked for dough recipes before. SO HAPPY I found it this time! I made it three times over the weekend since finding it on Friday evening. LOVE the garlic in the dough. I added Italian Seasonings per the reviews, which is the perfect compliment to this dough. YUM! This is my "keeper" dough recipe now. Thanks!
