Cheddar Cheese Bread Machine Pizza Recipe

Bread Machine Pizza Recipe

This is our family’s favourite pizza recipe, which I have adapted from various pizza recipes that we have come across over the years. We often it have on a Saturday for our ‘family movie night’, and it is very versatile- although I make the dough using the breadmaker, you can make it by hand, or even just use self-raising flour or baking powder, if you are really in a rush!

The cheddar cheese makes this a bit more of a British recipe, but if you would prefer mozzarella, or another cheese, you can go ahead and substitute it.

To make this recipe a bit more frugal, all of the ingredients I used were generic supermarket ‘value’ brands, and the black olives were from Approved Food. They were unpitted olives, and when I googled how to deal with them, this video was really helpful. Only my son and I like olives in our family, which is why only part of the pizzas have olives!

Bread Machine Pizza Ingredients

Makes two 12″ pizzas. Preparation and cooking time approx. 1 hour, plus mixing and rising time in bread machine.

For the dough:

1 1/4 cup water (warm but not hot)

2 tsp sugar

1 tsp salt

2 TBsp olive oil (or oil of your choice)

3 cups bread flour (I use chapatti flour mixed with wheat bran, but you can use your preferred flour)

1 tsp fast action dried yeast

Add the ingredients to the bread machine in the order listed, (this helps to ensure that the dough mixes better). Put on dough setting. When the dough is ready, divide it into two pieces. Setting one piece aside, use a rolling pin to roll out the other into a 12″ round on a floured surface, then transfer to a baking tray. I use silicone tray liners to prevent the pizzas from sticking. Repeat the process for the second piece of dough.

For the pizza sauce:

2 TBsp Olive oil (or oil of your choice)

1 large onion

1 clove garlic, minced

2 x 400g/ 14 oz tins chopped tomatoes or pizza sauce/ passata

1 TBsp tomato puree

1 tsp basil

Salt and pepper to taste

Saute the onion and garlic in the oil until tender. Add the other ingredients and simmer for 15 mins. Spread on the pizza bases when they are ready.

For the topping:

3 cups grated cheddar cheese (or your preferred cheese)

Vegetable or meat toppings of your choice- I used sliced peppers and black olives this time, but we also like ham and pineapple, pepperoni or tomato, depending on what we have on hand!

Sprinkle the cheese then your toppings over the bases and sauce.

Bake the pizzas at 200 C, 400 F, or Gas Mark 6 in the oven for 20 mins, or until the cheese is golden and bubbly, then enjoy!
