This is a fool proof guide to making your own delicious pizza dough! Soft and light, yet crispy on the bottom.
1 1/4 c (300 mL) water
1 1/2 Tbsp (20 g) olive oil
3 3/4 c (480 g) all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp (17 g) sugar
1 1/2 tsp (8.4 g) salt
1 1/2 tsp (4.2 g) active dry yeast
Place ingredients in the bread machine in the order listed above (or in the order specified by your machine), making sure to nestle the yeast in a small nest on top of the flour.
Place in bread machine and set the cycle to dough cycle.
When cycle is complete, preheat oven to 450 degrees. Roll the dough out into desired shape and thickness on a lightly floured surface.
Poke the dough with a fork all over and put it on the preheated pizza stone for 5 minutes. Once firm, remove from oven and top as desired.
Return to oven for another 5-10 minutes until dough is crisp and cooked through and cheese is bubbly.
*If you are using rapid rise yeast, use 2 tsp (6 g)
