Unplug your bread machine and remove the bread pan.
Place the water, olive oil and then the rest of the ingredients into the bread pan. You can make a little indent on top of the flour in order to avoid the yeast falling into the water (until the machine starts). Do not combine the salt with the yeast (as the salt can kill the yeast). Place the yeast & salt in separate parts of the bread pan.
Place the bread pan (with ingredients) into the bread machine and then plug in the machine.
Put your machine on the Dough setting and press the start button. In our Sunbeam bread machine, the kneading & rising on the dough setting takes about approximately 1:30 hours.
When your bread machine has finished, unplug the machine & pour the dough onto a cutting board. Wear oven mitts (as the bread pan/bread machine may be hot). Sprinkle some flour on the cutting board (before you pour the dough) in order to avoid the dough sticking to the cutting board.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Shape the pizza dough into a round pizza shape. Don't press down on the edges of the pizza. You want a little rim around the pizza. The higher edges will help to contain the sauce and cheese as the pizza bakes.
The pizza dough can be used to create one large pizza or two medium pizzas.
Instructions - Next Steps for Homemade Oven-Baked Pizza
Place the pizza-shaped dough on a non-stick baking sheet or pizza pan.
Spread a thin layer of tomato sauce (or pizza sauce) on the pizza dough.
Sprinkle on a layer of shredded cheese.
Add some already cooked toppings (i.e. fried Italian sausages). These toppings should be pre-cooked because the pizza baking process may not cook them properly or safely.
Bake pizza in the oven at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Baking time will vary due to the amount & variety of toppings and size & depth of the pizza dough. Check the pizza frequently after 15 minutes to ensure that it has been baked to perfection!
Wear oven mitts to remove pizza from the oven.
Place finished pizza on cutting board and cut into pizza slices. Enjoy!
