Bread Machine Pizza Dough

For a personalized pizza, add your favorite toppings to any of the crusts. Or try one of these satisfying suggestions. The combo of green bell pepper, red onion, tomato, and mozzarella cheese is delicious on the basil-Parmesan crust. Try mushrooms, provolone cheese, and pepperoni or Canadian bacon on the white or wheat crust. Top the taco crust with taco sauce, cooked ground beef, onion, green bell pepper, and cheddar cheese. Add shredded lettuce and chopped tomato just before serving.
