- Warm water...1 ½ cups (about 110 degrees)
- Flour...3-3 ½ cups
- Yeast...2 ½ tsp.
- Brown sugar... 1 tsp.
- Salt...1 tsp.(I use onion salt for more flavor. If you do this, you can omit the onion powder)
- Garlic powder...1 tsp.
- Onion powder...1 tsp.
- Oregano...1 tsp.
- Set your bread machine to the "Mix Dough" setting and then add the brown sugar, water, and yeast. Let proof for about 5 minutes
- Add 1 cup of flour and then olive oil, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and oregano
- Start the machine and add the remaining flour ½ cup at a time. Let the machine incorporate the flour before adding more. Once all flour is added, make sure the dough is not too wet or dry (add flour or extra water as needed)
- Once the dough cycle is complete (about 1 hour 40 minutes), remove dough and gently roll into a ball
- OR remove dough from machine after it is finished kneading- about 20 minutes- and place in a large, oiled, bowl. Cover with oiled plastic wrap and place in a warm area until doubled- about 1 hour), then remove dough and gently roll into a ball
- Let rest for 10 minutes and then you are ready to create your pizza
- You will have enough dough for 1 very large pizza or 2 smaller ones. Also, you could get 2 smaller pizzas and 2 calzones out of this recipe.
