1 cup warm water combined with 1/2 cup cottage cheese, then warmed slightly in the microwave just to take off the chill

1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese (or can use cheddar cheese)

2 tablespoons sugar

Place everything in the bread pan in order listed (starting with the water/cottage cheese mixture, ending with yeast on top).

For those of you that are lucky enough to own a Zojirushi bread machine this is a recipe that I developed for that machine, I have the older model, I imagine that this would be great for both newer and older, I also own a Sunbeam bread machine, I have not yet tested this on that machine I do know that this makes a fantastic pizza crust on the Zo

If you are using the Quick Dough cycle use 2 teaspoons quick-rise yeast in place of the active dry yeast, if you are planning to refrigerate the dough for up to 24 hours do not use the quick rise yeast/Quick Dough cycle

This will yield enough dough for up to a 15-inch pizza

For a Garlic-Herb crust add in 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder and 2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning


1-1/2 cups luke warm water (not hot)

1-1/2 tablespoons olive oil

1-1/2 teaspoons salt

3-3/4 cups white bread flour (Canadian residents can use all-purpose flour or half each)

2 teaspoons sugar

2 tablespoons yellow cornmeal (can omit)

1-1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast (or 1 teaspoon bread machine yeast)


Place all ingredients in bread pan in order listed (starting with water and ending with the yeast on top of the flour, make a small indent in the top of the flour to place the yeast in).

Set to Dough cycle (or Quick Dough cycle, remember 2 teaspoons quick-rise yeast in place of active dry yeast for the quick dough cycle)

After a few minutes of kneading check the dough, depending on the humidity in your house you may need to add in some water or flour to achieve the right dough consistency,  humidity will create moisture in the flour).

When cycle is done remove to a flat lightly floured surface, cover with a clean tea towel and allow to rest for 15 minutes (or if you are not using right away skip the 15 minutes resting time and place the dough into an oiled bowl, cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours before using, this is only for the active dry yeast/regular dough cycle).

Roll out to desired size.

Tip; you can pre-bake the crust for 12 minutes (400 degrees F bottom oven rack) this will stop the rising of the dough, then you can add on toppings and finish baking the pizza later

I make this in my Sunbeam bread machine, follow directions for a perfect loaf everytime!

Don’t even think about using anything but real butter!

Yield one 2-pound loaf


1-1/3 cups water (in my machine I most always have to add in a few more tablespoons of water, check your dough after about a minute of kneading)

1-1/2 teaspoons salt

2 tablespoons sugar

2-1/2 tablespoons butter for a more buttery flavor bread more won’t hurt)

1 large egg

4 cups bread flour (or can use bread machine flour)

1 teaspoon quick-rise yeast (do not substitute)


Warm the egg in a bowl of warm water for about 5 minutes to bring down to room temperature.

In a microwave-safe bowl heat the water with salt and sugar and cold butter to lukewarm or a just little warmer (about 25-30 seconds, do not have the water very hot)  stir to dissolve the granules, the butter does not have to be completely melted.

To the bread pan add in the water mixture, flour then the egg (crack the egg into a corner of the bread pan)

Using your finger make a small hole in the flour and pour the yeast into that hole.

Choose basic setting, medium crust then press Start

** Note** after about 1 minute of kneading add in more water or flour a small amount at a time if needed for the right dough consistancy.
