How to Make a Pizza Hut Pizza Crust (Copy Cat Recipe)
I love making homemade pizza. Ever since, I bought a used Bosch Mixer, making the pizza crust is a breeze, because I don’t have to knead the dough. I’ve never been very thrilled with the crust though. I mean, it’s OK, but nothing that I’m real excited about.
Finally, I decided to do a search for a Pizza Hut crust recipe. After doing some minor tweaking, this is what I came up with:
Warning: This is not a super low-fat crust! No dieters allowed! :) But for all of you not on a special diet, read on.
Pizza Hut Pan Pizza Crust CopyCat Recipe
1 cup warm water
1/3 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 cups flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 package (2 1/2 t.) dry yeast
1 cup vegetable oil
Dissolve yeast in 1 cup of warm water and let sit a couple of minutes. Add sugar and salt to the water and let dissolve. Put the rest of the ingredients into mixer and let knead (or knead by hand) for several minutes. The dough should be soft and slightly greasy.
This should make 2 medium size pizzas or 3 smalls (around 9″). I doubled the recipe and made 3 large pizzas. Normally, my family eats pizza as if we were in a food shortage, but this one was so filling that they could only eat 2 pizzas!
My husband said that this pizza was just as good as Pizza Hut. He’s super picky about certain things when it comes to his food, so that is saying A LOT!
The toppings on the above picture were: hamburger, pepperoni, onions and green peppers.
