Garlic and Herb Pizza Crust

I love this pizza dough I make in my bread machine. It’s so easy to make. I use fresh herbs instead of dried anytime I can, and in this dough it really makes a difference. If I make my own pizza, I can control the amount of fat and calories in each slice. Not only that, I use up leftovers and still feel like I’m having a treat without paying $30 for a pizza.

This is a great way to use up leftover chicken. Try using your favorite spaghetti sauce, chicken, peppers, and tomato. Omit the herbs in the dough, and you can make this popular chicken pizza they used to sell at our local pizza parlor with barbecue sauce, chicken and cashews.  Yum!
