Additionally, you can make dough for a crisp pizza crust, light dinner rolls, heavenly cinnamon rolls, hamburger or hoagie buns, artisan breads, sourdough, gluten-free breads and cakes. The possibilities are endless with this machine. It even makes delicious fruit jam and has the power and durability for hearty whole grain dough.
