I have tried many recipes over the past year for bread machine pizza dough. We make pizza every friday night and my whole family agrees - this is the best one hands down. It is consistently good and we all really love the flavor. I typically make the dough, split it in two pieces, roll them out, add my toppings and bake in a 450 degree oven. I take the pizza off the pan and cook it directly on the rack for the last 2 minutes or so to finish off the bottom crust and let it brown.

Awesome! Made it a few times exactly as written and was impressed with the crunch, taste and consistancy. Last time I made it I added 3 TBSP Vital Wheat Gluten (Since when is gluten a bad thing?) and the dough seemed to have greater elasticity and was easier to stretch and shape.

This is the BEST pizza dough recipe. Even better (and cheaper!) than take-out or pre-prepared doughs. My harshest critics, my two college-age sons, both gave it two thumbs up. This recipe gave new life to my bread maker that was collecting dust in my closet.

I have been meaning to rate this one and I've already made it twice! This crust comes out crunchy and the pizza toppings do not sog up the crust, even the middle part stays dry and crunchy. I only made one big pizza with this, and I baked it on my pampered chef stone. Make sure you oil your hands before handling the dough and don't forget to lightly grease the pan! (even if you use a stone!) What a keeper this will be! Thanks for sharing! =)

Even with all the 5 star reviews, I was skeptical - I've tried many different "best" pizza dough recipes, and they all turn out about the same. This on is truly THE BEST.<br/><br/>I upped the onion and garlic powder to 1/2 tsp., and would do so again. I like to cook my pizzas HOT, so I preheated to 550 (the hottest our oven goes). I parbaked the crust with sauce for 5 minutes (do put the sauce on - I didn't on the first one and the crust puffed up a lot!). Then, added the cheese and toppings and baked for 10 minutes. Used a pizza stone.<br/><br/>Just PERFECT. Thanks so much for sharing!

This is the best Pizza Dough recipe I have found. It tastes great. I used it many times now in my bread machine but that finally kicked the bucket. So I am making it in a large bowl holding out the water and yeast part till last. I mix the water and yeast then let that sit while mixing the other ingredients together. Then add it in and use a fork to mix together. Then kneed it a few times. Let rest to rise for an hour. And then proceed to hand spreading on a pizza pan or cookie sheet.

Awesome crust! Used a pizza stone. I might never go out for pizza again after trying this recipe!

I had given up on making my own pizza because I couldn't find a recipe I liked well enough. I've made this pizza twice. The first time I halved the recipe. The second time I made the full recipe and froze half the dough. I will not buy another frozen pizza again. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE BEST PIZZA RECIPE!!!

Perfect crust, and crunchy!! I left it on the pizza pan for 2 minutes, then slid it onto my pizza stone. I made a sausage, mushroom, wild rice, onion pizza, and a Buffalo chicken pizza, much better than delivery!!
