This is a fabulous recipe I got from my in-laws...DH and I contend that it's the best pizza dough we've ever tasted! We've also had friends agree - everyone who tries it loves it! *preparation time includes time in machine* *uncooked dough does not freeze well, but cooked pizza/calzones do!*

I've actually only made pizza dough with this recipe one time, and it was the best pizza dough I've found to date. But what I really use the recipe for is making cinnamon rolls! Unfortunately for my wasitline, I make rolls out of this dough at least once a month. This dough is so easy to roll out and makes soft, rich rolls. This recipe alone has made my bread maker worth its weight in gold!! For cinnamon rolls, I roll out 1/2 of the dough (freeze the rest) into a 14" square. Spread 2-3 tbsp butter on it, then sprinkle on a mix of 1/3 cup sugar and 1 tbsp cinnamon. Roll into a log, slice 1" thick and lay into a 8x8 or 9x9 greased baking dish. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes, then top with your favorite icing.

Wow. This was so good. I've tried many different recipes and have been disappointed but this one was fantastic. The dough was so easy to work with, unlike many other recipes where it is hard to roll out. I used my Kitchenaid mixer for the dough (5 min knead), then let it rest and rise for about 45 minutes before putting onto pizza pans. The taste was great (I love the extra sugar - it really gives it good flavour) and the bread held the toppings perfectly (no more soggy bottoms!). I made a regular size pizza plus some mini pizzas. Thank you so much for this recipe. I won't use any other now:)

This dough was perfect. It looked and handled like pizza dough. Even my DH liked it which hasn't happened with any other pizza dough recipe. Next time, I may try making half the recipe since the dough doesn't freeze well and there are only two of us now. I added olive oil to the pan and when the pizza was done, it slithered out on to our cutting board without any problem. The second dough ball, we are going to bake it on a pizza stone. This one I'm planning on making a white pizza with ranch dressing, mozzarella cheese, bell peppers, garlic, hot dogs and onion topping. I'm drooling now just thinking of it. I also made a mini calzone. Made for Help A Naked Recipe!
