How to Make "The Junkyard" Pizza (crust in bread machine)


  1. Combine water, olive oil, sugar, salt in pan of bread machine
  2. 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.
