Garlic Pizza dough recipe

This is what for is for dinner tonight.  I need to go to the store to get Mozzarella and some sausage. I just put the dough in the bread machine.  Yum! I added a sprinkle of Penzey's pizza seasoning to the dough and used just a touch more fresh garlic than called for.

I was reminded today of this recipe.  This recipe is from a good friend of mine, Sandy, who live in Iowa, I've had the pleasure of meeting her in person a few times and have been a guest in her home. She's a super good cook and a great friend, full of fun!  This is copied from a blog post I made last year. I think we'll have homemade pizzas soon, maybe tonight if I start this dough this afternoon.

Make your own pizzas for dinner - Garlic Pizza Dough recipe

I made this in my bread machine on the dough setting and did the second rise in a bowl.  I’ve also made pizza pockets/personal sized calzones with it before – it freezes really well.

Sandy's Garlic Pizza Dough Recipe

2 c Water
1/2 c Oil
3 cl Garlic; crushed
2 tb Sugar
1 ts Salt
6 c Flour
2 pk Yeast ( I use the yeast in the jar, where 2.5 teaspoons is about on pack of yeast, so I'll use 5 teaspoons, or just under 2 Tablespoons)

Dissolve yeast in water and add sugar; wait a few minutes; add oil and salt and garlic. Mix in 3 cups flour and whip about 10 min till it leaves the side of the mixer bowl. Add remaining flour and with dough hook or by hand knead till smooth. Allow to rise twice in the bowl. Punch down. (I rush this a bit) Oil baking sheets; use fingers to press the dough out to edges.

Makes 2 pizzas, cookie sheet size, or 12 individual (pie tin) size. Let rise a bit and top. Bake at 425* 20 min.


  1. Aww...I'm thrilled that you "referenced" me...and even MORE thrilled that you like the recipe. It's a perfect pizza dough recipe, isn't it?

  2. It is perfect! It is SOOO good. Tonight we all made our own pizzas. I made 4 mini pizzas and one 4x6 pizza (and ahve some in the freezer), Byron made a medium pizza and Anthony made three personal pizzas. We all made them in different ways (I prebaked my crust a bit) Anthony's was a bit thicker crust, Byron a bit thinner. It was great fun! We'll make more soon!
