Bread-machine Pizza Dough

recipe taken from Toastmaster bread maker guide
Ingredients: (for 2 thick or 4 thin crusts)
Water 80 degrees F 1 1/2 cups + 3 T
Oil 2 T
Sugar 2 T
Salt 1 t
Dry milk 2 T
Bread flour 4 1/2 c
Red Star Active Dry Yeast 2 t or Red Star Quick Rise Yeast 1 1/4 t or bread machine yeast 1 1/4 t

1. Put ingredients in bread machine pan as direction for your machine.
2. Place dough on lightly floured surface.  Divide and press onto pizza pans, raising edges.
3. Spread pizza sauce over the dough and sprinkle with toppings.
4. Bake 425 degrees F for 15-20 minutes or until crust is golden brown around edges.

*Pizza at our house is a passion--now I can't say that anyone living here works for Domino's, but we love our pizza!  Tonight everyone got to make their own:
This crazy cats went for pepperoni or ham with pineapple.
All the crust came from the same batch, but Ellen's was the tastiest, I'm not sure if it is because she worked it the most when she was rolling it out, or if it raised longer?  Yummy!
I chose a feta, chicken pizza.  Place ingredients on crust as ordered:
Pesto sauce/a little olive oil an herbs
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
cubed chicken (I just cooked a breast in the slower cooker the same time I put the dough in the bread machine)
1 diced tomato
1/4 cup feta cheese
a little more mozzarella cheese
This made a lot of pizza--and none of it went to waste!
