supereightsnate, you're spot on. I don't think there are breadmakers in Madison, to speak of. I find Madison Sourdough bread to be quite good, but their prices reflect a captive market. And, as far as I know, they don't sell dough.
I'm making a road-trip soon to Michigan soon to buy some of the good stuff from a local baker there, and schlep it back in a cooler. It's a cultured dough, so maybe I'll get wise and set aside some to start making my own.
$2 a pop, for a 16-inch pizza. Excellent flavor with good structure. Hmmm. Now for a little home-made sauce with fennel and basil, good parm or gradano, fresh red peppers, paper-thin onions, maybe a touch of chÃƒÅ¡vre, and some excellent olives. ... Then a nice Vin de Pays ... bliss!
