I have never made bread before with out using the pre made frozen dough you can buy at the grocery store.  However I do make pizza dough all of the time!  And it turns out fantastic.  I did that by hand.  So now I have finally gotten a kitchen aid stand mixer which I have wanted for I don't know how long, and I am trying to make bread.  It seems like my dough is coming out drier then my pizza dough did.  The only thing that I can really think of being different is that I put 2 tsp of olive oil in the mix.  Any one got any suggestions.  I really love making the pizza dough, and I thought I would try my hand at bread.  I just love the whole process of creating great food!

I'm a new baker

I'm so gald to have found this website.  For several reasons I've decided to get serious about making my own bread.  I hope this isn't sacrilegious, but I have a simple bread machine and would like to use that for my baking or at least mixing the dough.  This is mostly a convenience issue as I work full-time and have little time to actually wait 90 minutes for bread to rise etc.  Making bread by hand seems very time consuming.
