Some Things You Should Know

I started this blog a long time ago as when it was "What's Cooking at My house" and before my mad photography skills kicked in and before we went gluten free. With that said you never know what you might find here. There's a little something for everyone I believe. But my hope is to provide more recipes with better photos to tempt your tummy. *smile*

Basic Breadmaker Pizza Dough

I don't use my bread maker for much but it is great for when I want to make homemade pizza crust. All I have to do is plop the ingredients in the bread maker and walk away until done. It does take some pre-planning as it takes a little over an hour to make and rise. But I get a lot done in that hour instead of doing it all by hand.

Ingredients:
This will make 2- 14 inch thin crust or the equivalent of 2 pizza stones (Highly recommend cooking on pizza stones for even baking)
Or one really thick crust pizza!12 oz. water (room temp.)
3/4 tsp. salt
3 TBS. Olive Oil
3 cups All purpose flour
1 cup White/Wheat flour
2 tsp Active Dry Yeast
Optional Herbs- Garlic Powder, Italian Seasoning, Parmesan Cheese etc.

Directions:
Combine all ingredients into bread pan in order starting with water. Select the Dough setting and press start. Walk away and come back when peeping goes off LOL. Divide dough in half and roll out onto stones. I put a little corn meal down to prevent sticking.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Put toppings on pizza and bake 20-25 mins. or until crust is golden brown.

Enjoy!
