How To Make "the junkyard" pizza (crust in bread machine)

  • 1

    In a separate bowl add flour, then sprinkle garlic on flour and add the basil and oregano. Stir quickly to combine and add to bread machine. Lastly add yeast.
  • 3
    Turn machine on dough cycle. Let the dough go through the cycle (mine is about 1 hr 30 min. After the machine is done and beeps, let the dough rest from 5 to 30 minutes as you prepare the toppings. (I just chop them into a dice size and place them to a bowl, hand toss them together, set aside) The longer it rests, the thicker and more tasty the crust. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 475°F. Dump the dough out onto a sprayed pan you will bake the pizza on. Add 1 cup of sauce and add your choice of pizza toppings. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 12 to 15 minutes.
