Wheat Pizza Crust Dough

in Recipes

I've said it before but I'll say it again, I love my bread machine. It's so handy and I love to just be able to put in a few ingredients and, tada!, bread! My favorite thing to stick in the bread machine is pizza dough. Hubby loves pizza, any kind of pizza, so I like to make a double batch of dough, put one crust in the freezer and one for supper. Here is my pizza dough recipe.

What you need:

  • 1 c. warm water
  • 2 T. oil
  • 1 T. sugar
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1 c. whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 c. white flour
  • 2 1/4 t. yeast
Add the ingredients in the order listed to the bread machine. Run on a dough cycle.
When it's done you can either make it into crust(I let it rise for about 30 minutes first) or you can stick it in a ziploc bag and put it in the freezer. When you take it out of the freezer to use just sit it on the counter all day and then make my pizza for supper. And if you need a new pizza idea you can always make my famous BBQ Chicken Pizza!

I'm thinking of buying a bread machine. Do you have one that is relatively inexpensive and good that you would reccommend? Thanks! I love reading your blog. It offers me such good ideas as I'm trying to save money too. Thanks for sharing all your ideas. Anything I can do to help spread the word about your blog besides telling others?

Here is a link to the bread machine I have

I really like it because it's not too big and you can make a few different size loaves in it. I think we will probably see sales on them soon but I wouldn't spend less than $50 on one to insure it was a decent one.

I'm glad you like the blog! I love when my readers tell their friends! Right now I don't really have another way to promote other than by word of mouth but hopefully I'll come up with something soon:)

Hi Merissa, I used the link above you gave me and nothing came up on amazon. I removed a little of the ending of the address and a bread machine did come up. Is it the Breadman TR520 Programmable Breadmaker for 1,1 1/2 -2 lb loaves?

I'm adding the link to the bread machine I have in the bottom of the posts. Apparently I don't know how to post a link in the comments, lol.

I didnt have any wheat flour so I just used all purpose flour and it still turned out wonderful. It was my first time making my own pizza dough. Thanks so much for all the great and easy to follow recipes.

I made this yesterday using my bread machine but I could not get it rolled or stretched out. I was actually making it to make pizza pockets.
I also checked your freezer pizza dough recipe & that recipe calls for less yeast so I’m not sure if I need to try that one or what. Any suggestions?

I guess I’m not sure why it wouldn’t roll out, we’ve always had good luck with this recipe in the bread machine. Did you add the oil?
