Whole Wheat Breadmaker Pizza Dough

Homemade pantry pizza is one of my lazy weekend meal staples. Husband or I Iron Chef a pizza sauce with tomato sauce oregano, basil, garlic, and a pinch of salt for taste then we root through the refrigerator and freezer for interesting pizza toppings, plunk it all on the breadmaker whole wheat pizza crust I make ahead of time and freeze for such an occasion.

We usually end up with something that looks like it came from frou frou pizza place than your garden variety pepperoni pizza place. Both husband and I worked in pizza restaurants as teens. After dealing with so many orders of pepperoni pizzas during that  time, we tend to put anything but pepperoni on  a pizza.

Husband and I declared June Eat From the Pantry and Freezer Month. I got requests for my whole wheat pizza dough recipe after mentioning it on Condo Blues. Well, I’m not going to be whipping up a new batch since my breadmaker is pushing up daises, so you might as well do it for me.

Ingredients:

1 cup water
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 ½ cups white flour

2.  Add the ingredients in the order listed and according to the manufacturer’s directions.

3.  Press Start on the bread machine and wait until done.

4.  Roll the dough onto a greased pizza pan (I use a baking stone. It does not need grease/oil.)
