Making pizza dough

Pizza with Muffuletta salad mix, tomato sauce, and mozzarella cheese

Whether you buy pre-made dough, make your own by hand, or use a bread machine (like I do), eventually you've got to figure out how to get that lump of dough shaped into a pizza pie shell. Over on YouTube, Momspizzadough makes it look easy to shape it and get it from the peel onto your pizza stone. I tried is easy!

One of our favorite pizza combos is Muffuletta salad mix plus tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese!

Pizza Dough (for bread machine)

1-1/3 c water
1/4 c olive oil
2-1/2 c white flour
1 c whole wheat flour
1 T sugar
1-1/2 t salt
2-1/4 t yeast

Set machine for dough setting. Shape dough and transfer to hot stone at 450 for about 10 minutes. Add toppings and cook 5 to 10 minutes more. Cooking can be done in oven or on grill.
