Bacon Pizza Recipe from "The Bon Appetit"

Hubby and Mishu loves pizza very much.They both can eat pizza everyday.Unfortunately I'm not a pizza person,I'm still a rice or noodles person.I make pizza for them almost weekly. Recently I bought "Bon Appetit" cookbook at discount store..I found few pizza dough recipe in that cookbook..I altered the topping given to my own favourite topping and changed the grilling method on open grill to oven.I also used my bread maker to mix the dough instead of kneading with hands.So for now I already tried one of the dough recipe and found it's quite good!! If your family love pizza like mine,why not try to make your own pizza at home? Ingredients:
1 cup warm water(105 F-115 F)
1 tbsp sugar
1 envelope dry yeast( I used instant active yeast)
3 tbsp olive oil
3 cups or more all purpose flour ( I used bread flour)
1 1/2 tsp salt

1:Combine 1 cup warm water and sugar in processor.Sprinkle yeast over;let stand until yeast dissolves and mixture is foamy,about 10 minutes.
2:Add oil,then 3 cups flour and salt.Process until dough comes together,about 1 minute.
3:Turn dough out onto floured work surface.Knead until dough is smooth and elastic,adding more flour by tablespoonfuls,if dough is sticky ,about 5 minutes.
4:Lightly oil large bowl,add dough and turn to coat.Cover bowl with plastic wrap,then clean kitchen towel.Let stand in warm draft-free area until dough doubles in volume,about 1 hour.
5:Punch down dough.Knead dough in bowl until smooth,about 2 minutes.Spread dough over brick pan .Cover loosely with towel and set aside until double in volume.
6:Spread your favourite topping on the dough: Spaghetti /tomato sauce,shredder cheese and bacon..
7:Bake at 375 F for 30 minutes or until lightly brown.Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve warm.
I used Breadmaker,so I dump everything(ingredients) in the mixing pan and press dough function to let the machine knead and proof the dough until the cycle finished.
