bread machine pizza

My parents have given me many wonderful things. They gave me a happy childhood. They gave me financial help when I graduated broke from college. They gave me guidance. They gave me the gift of life.

And in the face of all those great things, my birthday bread machine is probably still top 5.

I haven't bought bread since October. We make a loaf about once a week.

At some point I realized that it was silly to keep kneading our pizza dough when we have this fantastic, magical machine. So I revisited my old whole wheat pizza dough recipe.


Making the dough by hand is already super easy. Making it in the bread machine is super easier.

I like to measure the flour in any bread machine recipe in grams. Accuracy is really important with bread machines, and scooping out the flour can result in varying degrees of packing...meaning my cup might not be equal to your cup.

And of course, tweak as needed for best results in your own machine!


100% Whole Wheat Bread Machine Pizza Dough

1 cup water
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
350 grams white whole wheat flour
1 tsp sugar
2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast

1. Add all the ingredients to the bread machine in the order listed. Run on the dough setting.
2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Split the dough into two pieces, roll each one out on a floured surface, and transfer to floured baking sheets.
3. Add toppings of choice. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until desired crispiness is achieved.

  1. I love pizza and you surely are making my mouth water with these photos... yummy ;)
    In the bread machine you say.... yet another small appliance I still need to get (or maybe get my mom to get me ;))
    Hope all is well.


Thanks for making me smile. =)
