Breadmaker recipes required

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a good pizza dough recipe I can use in my breadmaker please?


I have decided to make my own even though I am addicted to the Margharita pizzas from Lidl :oops: I made them years ago and seem to remember the recipe being quite simple, but of course cannot remember it :roll: Also, does anyone freeze their own pizzas, and at which stage, I am thinking of freezing the cooked base with cooked topping but non melted cheese on, just to thaw and re-heat, would that be best?


I am also after a good tear and share bread recipe if anyone has one, that can be mixed in the breadmaker and cooked in the oven :D

this is the one i always use


For the pizza dough, throw the following ingredients into a bread maker and set to the pizza dough setting –




350g strong white plain flour

7g easy blend yeast sachet

2 tablespoons olive oil

225ml (8 fl oz) milk (or water)

optional – teaspoon of sugar or honey

optional – 1/2 teaspoon of salt

optional – 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper


from this site http://www.pizzarecipe.org.uk/


p.s. i freeze the dough in portions and also freeze batches of the sauce then just defrsot and make the pizza as and when, I find it easier that way.

Thank you! I see from the link that it makes three pizzas, that is a good batch size for me :D


Do you think a normal dough setting would be OK? My breadmaker doesn't have a pizza dough setting. The dough setting lasts for 1 hour 30 mins.


yes, I just use my dough setting and it's about 90 mins too. Get those pizza trays with the holes in, Asda do them for about £3 each, makes the base lovely and cripsy. I'm making pizza t'row, I also use the recipe for the pizza sauce from that site and then I usually add some ham, pepperoni and cheese.


Enjoy! :D

Hi Claire


Here's a tear'n'share recipe from my Panasonic booklet - haven't tried it yet, though, as I'm on a diet :(


For the dough:


1 1/4 tsp yeast

550g strong white flour

2 tsp sugar

1 1/2 tsp salt

310ml water


Make on the dough setting (obviously!).


Olive tear'n'share


1 batch tear'n'share dough

6 tbsp tapenade

25g olives, chopped

2tbsp olive oil


1. Roll dough out into a rectangular sheet 1.5cm thick, approx. 24cm x 46cm


2. Spread the tapenade over the dough, sprinkle on the chopped olives and drizzle with 1 tbsp of the oil. Roll up from the short end like a swiss roll.


3. Cut the dough into 4cm slices with a sharp knife and place close together, cut sides up, in a 20cm round greased cake or flan tin.


4. Drizzle with the remaining tbsp of oil and allow to prove at 40 degrees C until doubled in size (approx 25 mins)


5. Bake in a preheated oven at 220 C/Gas Mark 7 for 15-20 mins or until golden brown.


There are variant recipes for pepperoni and ham'n'cheese versions - let me know if you'd like me to post them as well. And do let us know how it turns out!

The pizza recipe we use is the one that came with the machine, and the children and their friends havent complained yet :lol:


half a tsp yeast

300g (11oz) strong bread flour

half tbsp sugar

15g unsalted butter

1 tbsp milk powder

1 tsp salt

210ml water


I have a pizza dough setting, which takes 45 mins, 10-15 mins kneading, 10-15 mins rising, 10 mins kneading and 10 rising.


I would imagine anything similar will be fine :D

(edited as I forgto to say, I make twice the amount due to hungry horraces :roll: and it makes 4/5 large pizzas depending on how thin they are :D )

Because I only use Spelt flour, I use one bread dough for everything! (I also make pasta with Spelt flour)


There are some lovely Bread Machine cookbooks around - I bought mine from Scotts of Stow, Claire, I'm sure they're in second hand book shops by now :wink: - or the library.


I make something the book calls Monkey Bread which I call a Tear & Share.


I make the dough into small balls and place them, just touching, into a rectangular tin with deep'ish sides. Then I poke them all over with my fingertips... quite hard, to make deep holes. Drizzle over a mix of olive oil, garlic, salt and chopped fresh rosemary. Leave to rise and then bake at 220C. until golden.

Well, I made home made pizza on Saturday following the dough recipe provided by Poet, and it was quite nice! I did cook the pizza first before I put the topping on though, as I was worried about it all going soggy :?


I kept the rest of the dough in the freezer, and today defrosted it and made four individual pizza bases (television screen shaped to fit on the non stick trays :D ), cooked them, made a topping out of bits and bobs lying around, and put that on followed by the rest of the cheese I had bought. They are all now in the freezer awaiting a re-heat when required.


I've written the recipe on a post it and attached it to my breadmaker instruction booklet, so I can always find it :D


Must have a go at those tear and share recipes now :D
