Pizza dough in the breadmaker

I use one batch of this dough to make two smaller pizzas.  The younger kids can split one but my older son has a whole one.  My mom gave me a marble rolling pin that helps get the crust thin.
Or I make a thick crust one...

I blogged this with another recipe before but it's getting it's own post to make it easier to find:) I added some flax seed to this one in the picture. Also when it was done I stretched it in the pan and then came back a little later and stretched some more. Did that a few times until it filled the pan and then poked it all over with a fork to not have any bubbles and I plan to do this everytime. Also this one is lightly prebaked to make it easier to use when a recipe called for a store bought prebaked crust.

Breadmaker crust
1 cup water
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. olive oil
1 Tbs. sugar
2 tsp. yeast

After the dough has risen in the machine, grease a 14" pizza pan or baking pan. Stretch the dough to fit. Spread your favorite sauce, sprinkle on grated mozzarella (and Cheddar if you like), add toppings, and bake at 450 for 15 - 20 minutes.
