  1. Recipe rating: 5 of 5 No Sugar

    You really don't need to add the sugar. We never have. Also we add a gulumph of olive oil which is probably more than the tablespoon here.

  2. Recipe rating: 5 of 5 So easy

    Pizza dough is simple to make, but using a bread machine makes it very quick and easy. I sometimes leave the dough to rise again - not sure if that's necessary, but either way it makes a very tasty pizza. Not all breadmachines use number 8 for pizza (mine is 13), so check before you set the machine.

  3. Recipe rating: 5 of 5 A winner

    I have a Kenwood breadmaker and have tried various recipes over the years. I was very impressed with this one, good consistancy, rose well, crisp and delicious. The only one I have ever saved :)
