Pizza Hut Original Pan Pizza

 Just look at the the width and depth of that pizza slice! I have to say this is my favorite way to make pizza now! What the kids loved most about this pizza was the soft (spongy) crust. It was like biting into a muffin or sponge cake, yet the pizza slice was heavy. This was the first time ever my kids have eaten their pizza crust. They actually said, "Mommy you make the best pizza!" and I'm not even Italian!

Pizza Hut Original Pan Pizza
  • 1 1/3 cup warm water (105 degrees F)
  • 1/4 cup non-fat dry milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 package dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (for dough)
  • 9 ounces vegetable oil (3 ounce per pan)
  • butter flavored cooking spray
  • 1 can (8 ounce size) tomato sauce 
  • 1 teaspoon dry oregano 
  • 1/2 teaspoon marjoram 
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry basil 
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
Put yeast, sugar, salt, and dry milk in a large (2 qt.) bowl. Add water and stir to mix well. Allow to sit for two minutes. Add oil and stir again. Add flour and stir until dough forms and flour is absorbed.

Turn out on to a flat surface and knead for about 10 minutes. Divide dough into three balls. In three 9" cake or pie pans, put 3 Oz. of oil in each making sure it is spread evenly. Using a rolling pin, roll out each dough ball to about a 9" circle. Place in cake pans.

Spray the outer edge of dough with cooking spray. Cover with a plate. Place in warm area and allow to rise for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.


Combine ingredients and let sit for 1 hour.

For Each Nine Inch Pizza: Preheat oven to 475 degrees F Spoon 1/3 cup sauce on dough and spread to within 1" of edge. Distribute 1 1/2 Oz. shredded mozzarella cheese on sauce. Place toppings of your choice in this order: Pepperoni or Ham Vegetables Meats (cooked ground sausage or beef) Top with 3 Oz. mozzarella cheese Cook until cheese is bubbling and outer crust is brown.
