Make this pizza dough in the bread machine for your family! I like to keep my bread machines going and make multiple balls of homemade pizza dough to freeze for the coming months. You can also cook pizza straight from the bread machine, too!


1 1/2 cups warm water

3 TBSP olive oil (you can use vegetable oil if it’s all you have)

2 TBSP sugar

1 tsp salt

3 cups whole wheat flour (You can totally use all-purpose if you’d rather. When I use exclusively all-purpose flour I usually add in an extra cup to bring it to 4 cups total.)

2 1/4 tsp Active Dry Yeast


Place ingredients in bread machine in order listed.

Set bread machine on “dough” setting.


Once the dough cycle is complete I remove the dough and place it in a large metal mixing bowl. I let it sit covered lightly with a clean kitchen towel for about another hour or so. It will continue to rise during that time.

Afterward, I will either roll out the dough to make homemade pizza that night or I’ll package it per my directions below for the freezer.
