Pizza Crust

This is a recipe that came with my bread machine (West Bend) which I have slightly modified. I usually double the recipe and make them on 2 cookie sheets with edges. When I first made pizza with this crust my 6 year old son told me it was the best pizza in town! That is really a compliment because he is a VERY picky eater and we have 8 pizza shops in our little town!


  • 3/4 cup water (80 - 90 degrees F)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons dry active yeast or 1 1/2 teaspoons bread machine yeast


  1. Select dough setting. Place ingredients in pan as listed making a shallow well in the center for yeast. When dough cycle is complete, remove dough and place on floured surface. Knead about 1 minute then let rest for about 15 minutes.
  2. Roll out dough to fit 12- or 14-inch pizza pan. Place dough in greased pan that has been sprinkled with cornmeal. Press dough into pan, forming an edge. Let dough rise in a warm, draft-free place for 20-25 minutes.
  3. Spread with your favorite pizza sauce, cheese and toppings.
  4. Bake in preheated 425 degrees F oven for 15-20 minutes or until nicely browned on top.
  5. Let rest for 5 minutes before cutting.
