Pizza Dough for Bread Machines

Taken from Better Homes and Gardens Best Bread Machine Recipes

Basic Pizza Dough for a 2 lb. loaf (or to make two big crusts)

1 1/3 cup water
2 tablespoons olive or cooking oil
4 cups of bread flour (works well mixed half/half with whole wheat too)
1 tsp salt
1 1/4 tsp yeast

Add ingredients according to your machines instruction manual. Select the dough cycle. Remove the dough from the machine and punch down. Cover and let it rest 10 minutes.

I normally use half the dough immediately and freeze half for later. I prefer the thawed dough over the fresh because it is so much easier to work with.

You know, I make biscuits a lot when I need a quick bread for a meal. Sometimes I even use water in place of soy milk. :-)

I loved reading your "how long can I go without shopping" posts. I think I may do the same thing a little later in the month because I want to go berry and peach picking and that will use up some of my budget money.
