- 1 hr 5 min
Add water, oil, salt, bread flour, and yeast to bread machine pan in the order suggested by manufacturer.
Select dough/manual cycle. When cycle is complete, remove dough from machine to a lightly floured surface. If necessary, knead in enough flour to make dough easy to handle.
For each pizza, grease pan and sprinkle with cornmeal. Roll out dough and place on pan or pat dough in pan. Top each pizza with 1/2 to 3/4 cup sauce, 1/2 to 3/4 pound cooked meat or 3 1/2 to 5 ounces pepperoni, 1/2 to 1 cup sliced or chopped onion or green bell pepper and/or other vegetable, and 1 to 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese. Bake at 425oF for 15 to 25 minutes or until done – pizza is done when edges of crust are golden and cheese is bubbly. Makes 1 or 2 pizzas depending on desired thickness of crust and pizza size.
