Subject: Bread Mach. Pizza Crust
Here's the no-oil pizza crust I wrote about. This recipe is for
machines that make the big loaves of bread; I'll post one for
machines that make little ones, too (but I haven't tested it).
No-Oil Pizza Crust for Large-Loaf Bread Machines
1 Tbs. yeast
1 tsp. sugar
1/4 cup cornmeal
3 Tbs. whole wheat flour
3 cups white bread flour
1 1/4 cups warm water
2 Tbs. applesauce
put bread machine on white bread - manual setting and dump
ingredients in according to your machine's preferences
when cycle is all done, remove and separate into 3-4 balls of dough.
Place on floured wax paper and let rise for about 20 mins. more (add
a little flour if dough is too sticky). Shape, top, and bake til done
in a very hot oven (mine goes to 550 degrees).
Notes: When I didn't have cornmeal, I substituted whole wheat flour
and it worked just as well. Also, the first time I made it, I had to
use oil (my kids had eaten all of the applesauce) -- it worked just
the same, so the substitution of applesauce seems to make no real
difference in taste, texture, or appearance.
Pizza Crust for Small Bread Machines
2 1/4 cups bread flour
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. applesauce
3/4 cup water
1 tsp. yeast
after cycle is done, cut into 4 portions; cover with plastic wrap
and let rise for 20 mins. Shape, top, and bake 12-15 mins. in
a 500 degree oven.
