I make pizza dough all the time. Actually, I also make bread dough all the time, and they CAN be interchangeable.

In fact, on Sunday I made a batch of multigrain bread dough and divided it into 2/3 for a large loaf, and 1/3 for a 14-inch pizza crust.

The more often you make bread dough, the easier it becomes to do, and if you have a large Cuisinart food processor, you can process up to 7 cups of flour at a time into dough, and it takes just a couple of minutes to have the dough ready to rise. It's especially helpful for folks who have arthritis in their hands, or carpal tunnel.

I make pizza dough but not bread dough. I seem to never get the texture right for bread so gave up. Used to have a bread machine but gave it to my sister when she wanted one and I had stopped using it.

I don't really bake bread. For Pizza I buy frozen pizza dough, I think it calls Rohds or something. It's not bad. Wish I had simple recipe to make it my self.

ChefJune, care to share some dough recipes, especially the one for the Cuisinart, please?

Have you tried the New York Times bread recipe? No kneading. It takes a while but is very, very easy and makes excellent bread.

Charlie, this is a link to the current pizza dough recipe I use. It is a no-knead recipe, start it one afternoon and bake off two pizzas the next day...wonderful crusts....you can do it. The recipe calls for 3 cups of flour, I use 1 Cup white, whole wheat and semolina flour

No Knead Pizza Dough Recipe - Easiest No Knead Pizza Dough Recipe

I see a note I made, do not cover bowl of dough with a towel, use plastic to keep the dough from drying out.

Thank you ladies.

My main problem is lack of time. I work crazy hours and when I am at home and am cooking I will spen time making meat dishes. I will have to try. Anpther problem with 4 kids at home, I never know what they will eat. I have couple of very picky eaters. And if I start making pizza today, it doesn't mean that they will eat it tomorow.


Thank you again.

I make my own bread dough. I make 2 loaves a week at a cost of about 50 cents a loaf, compared to $3.00 a loaf for store bought. Plus, my bread tastes much better than the store bought and doesn't have any of the additives or preservatives.
