    Serves: 8 

    • 3/4 cup (190ml) lukewarm water
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 2 cups (250g) plain flour
    • 1 teaspoon white sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 2 teaspoons dry yeast

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Place the ingredients into the pan of a bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Close the lid, select the Dough cycle, and press Start.
    2. When the machine signals the end of the cycle, remove the dough and knead into a tight ball on a lightly floured surface. Let rest for about 15 minutes.
    3. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C. Stretch the dough out to fit your pizza pan. Let rise for about 20 minutes for a thicker crust.
    4. Top with sauce, cheese and desired pizza toppings. Bake for 10 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the base is lightly browned on the bottom when you lift it up to take a peek.

    Update: Wow! I love this recipe! I have made this recipe probably 30 times, no kidding. Homemade "pizza" (actually cheese bread, no red sauce) has become a Sat. lunch or dinner tradition at our house. While I have tried several other pizza crust recipes on this site, this one remains our fav and the one I keep coming back to. The printed recipe card in my recipe box is so worn and tattered that I need to print a new one! I almost have it memorized. Also, wanted to say that 6oz. of liquid is 3/4 of a cup, according to my pampered chef liquid measure. Original review:I love that you can make the dough in the bread machine. I did add a little parmesan cheese as the machine was mixing it, and that helped it come together nicely. I then left it in the frig overnight and make it today for lunch for my boys. I made a cheese bread instead of traditional pizza (my 8yo doesn't like the red sauce).  -  31 Mar 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made this recipe using 2 cups of whole wheat flour instead of bread flour and I used the pizza dough setting on my bread machine. After rolling it flat and letting it rise a bit I swiped it with Olive oil and a little fresh garlic and sprinkled cheese on top. The kids LOVED it with some marinara dipping sauce! We'll definately make it again!  -  19 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Disappointingly lacking in garlic flavor, and a dense, chewy texture. Sorry, but if you're going to make your own pizza, it deserves better than this. Leave the garlic out of the crust altogether and put it on top where it belongs. Or, if you must, try brushing the outer edge of a good, unflavored crust - before or after baking - with a mixture of fresh minced garlic, herbs (oregano, parsley, basil...), salt and olive oil and/or melted butter.  -  21 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
