Pizza - Kid Friendly Cooking Instructions

The only thing kids like more than eating pizza is making pizza. With a bread machine making pizza dough is easy. And it taste better than the pizza dough you buy in the store. Makes 2 pizzas.

What You'll Need

  • 1 3/4 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 1/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 2 cups pizza sauce
  • 4 cups grated mozzarella
  • Other pizza toppings, as desired
  • cooking spray

How to Make It

Add water, oil, sugar, salt, flour and yeast to bread maker pan. Set bread maker on pizza dough setting. Hit start.

While bread machine is working, thoroughly clean a large area on the counter top using spray cleaner. Wipe with wet paper towel to remove any excess cleaner. When dry, sprinkle flour on clean counter top.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray two 17"x11" jelly roll pans (or cookie sheets with low sides) with cooking spray.

When bread machine has completed its cycle, dump pizza dough on to floured surface. Use (or have an adult use) a serrated knife to cut pizza dough in half. Set aside one half.

Roll out dough with a rolling pin. If it sticks to the rolling pin sprinkle flour on dough. Roll until dough will fill the pan. Repeat with second half of pizza dough.

Spread one cup of sauce on each pizza and top with two cups of cheese. Add other toppings.

Put pizzas on middle and upper rack of oven. Bake for 7 minutes. Switch the pizzas positions and bake for 7 more minutes.
