Pizza Dough

This will make approximately 4 twelve inch round pizzas:


3 1/2 cups flour

1 cup warm water

2-3 TBS active yeast

2-3 TBS Honey

1/3 cup olive oil

2 tsp salt

The easiest way to do this is to use a bread machine (putting liquid ingredients in first) & set it to a mix & single rise setting.  I have never done it manually but my friends have.  Just make mix the ingredients & knead it soft & then let it rise on a floured surface for about an hour or two.  It can then be used immediately or refrigerated up to a week.

If you make pizza or flatbreads a lot (as I do – because it is cheap & fun) – I sincerely suggest spending the money to buy a bread machine on Ebay or elsewhere.  I make pizza several times a week.  I want to marry my bread machine.

The money saved eating pizza as often as I do will quickly justify the cost of the machine – which runs about $100 or less (  If you buy on Ebay – only buy from sellers with very high feedback scores & maybe be sure they are located in the US.  Also – be sure to add their shipping charges to the total cost before you click BUY.
