Garlic-Rosemary Pizza Dough for the Bread Machine


Making pizza dough in your bread machine is a delicious and inexpensive alternative to your favorite restaurant when you just don’t feel like heading out.  I love using the bread machine for meals like this.  You dump in the ingredients, press the button and go.  Easy peesy.  I added in some garlic and rosemary to the dough which really amped up the flavors.
