Most everyone enjoys a Pizza Night!  Make your own at home with this Easy Breadmaker Pizza Dough Recipe. 

Eating out is fun, but getting expensive. Even a take-out pizza is costly when you add extra toppings.

Years ago, my late aunt would spend all day prepping meals, and send me home with her homemade Pizza Dough.  I used to make homemade pizza with it until she passed.

Now we are empty nesters, and sometime just want to stay home, but still enjoy pizza.  I've had a bread machine for years, so am making my own again.  I also have yet to try a Sourdough Pizza Dough
recipe, but it's planned for my meal rotation.

This recipe can made several different sizes, depending if you cut it into portions.  This is for 2 large pizzas.  I got the perforated pizza pan on sale at Aldi.  I do have a Pampered Chef Pizza Stone I will making this DIY Pizza crust on next.

I have a Regal Kitchen Pro Bread Machine that is so old I can't remember when or where I bought it.  It's held up well, even though it doesn't have all the bells and whistles the newer ones do, but does have a dough cycle.  The dough cycle on this bread maker lasts around 90 minutes.

The bread maker pizza dough can be frozen when placed in a zippy bag, sprayed with olive oil, or oil of your choice.

Use your favorite toppings (I bought one pound of lean ground beef, but only used 1/2 pound that I pre-cooked.)  But Italian Sausage is next on my list.  I also topped with sauteed sliced mushrooms. I pre-cooked the mushrooms, placed on paper towel, and then froze the remainder in my Foodsaver Vacuum Sealer bags for the freezer to be used on the next pizza.
