This is the best pizza dough I have ever had. A bread maker makes this recipe super easy!
1 cup warm beer (yes, beer. See note below)*
1 Tablespoon olive oil
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 3/4 cups flour
1 Tablespoon yeast, not rapid rising
Place all ingredients in bread maker in order listed. Use dough setting and approximately 1 1/2 lb setting. Once dough is ready, place in refrigerator and let rise until double.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Press dough into 2 lightly greased 12″ pizza pans. Brush lightly with oil. Add toppings and bake 15 – 25 minutes or until bottom of crust is crispy and edges lightly browned.
*I know beer. I can’t stand the smell of beer, let alone the taste. However, the alcohol evaporates and leaves a nice “yeasty” flavor. Give it a try 🙂
