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 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.

For years I have been searching for the best pizza dough recipe. I have used many recipes and none of them lived up to my expectations. This recipe is the very best by far and the closest to a professionally made pizza I have baked. It is easy and doesn't take long to make. This will definitely be my go to recipe from now on. The pizza sauce is easy and excellent also. Happy Baking!
Wow fantastic. Rarely do you see this many reviews and have 5 stars. Worth every star! Followed the recipe exactly except used actual milk instead of water/powder. The final oiling of the pan, used only 1/2 tablespoon and spread with brush. Pizza tasted spot on! The crust was amazing, better texture, crispier than pizza huts and very close to the premade crust pizza I like to get and bake at walmart, now I can have both and save $! Might try 2 tablespoons of oil on the pan next time to get it closer to pizza huts greasy bottom.
It is super delicious. Thanks for sharing. If there are more than 5 star then I would have given that.

I'm giving this 5 stars because this pizza is amazing and does taste like Pizza Huts! However, I did make a few changes because the oil amount in the pan is way too much for my liking so I used 1 tablespoon olive oil instead of 3oz in each pan and the pizza turned out great. I also used olive oil in the dough instead of vegetable oil. The last time I made it I froze one of the pizza pans right after I assembled it with all the ingredients. Then, the day I cooked it I let it defrost in fridge then put in on the counter an hour before I baked it. Tasted just like fresh! So go ahead and make extra because it freezes great.
Thank you for this recipe! This is better than Pizza Hut. I only coat the pans with oil instead of 3 ounces each. Amazing!

I have made this pizza for about 2 years now, and it't the best without doubt. I just had to convert it to european measures. 3 dl water, 0.6 dl milk. Use appr. 600 grams of tipo 00 flouver, and let rise in pizza pan for 30 minutes withe the sauce on it. 250 degrees at bottom shelf for 10-12 min. I also added timian, pepper, tomatopaste and a pinch of anis in the sauce.
I just made this recipe tonight was thinking to myself could this REALLY taste like Pizza Hut's Pizza?! I was so thrilled and excited when taking the first bite and found it is the closet thing to Pizza Hut. I enjoyed every bite as did my hubby. We can't wait to have guests over to impress them with our newly found Pizza skills! Thank you for a delicious copycat..it is one I will make time and time again. Delicious!
This is a great recipe. One helpful tip is after the dough has risen, cool the pans of dough in the fridge for at least an hour before adding sauce or toppings. This will prevent it from falling flat from the weight of the ingredients.
So delicious! I would add just a bit more salt but otherwise the crust is just like PH Pan Pizza. Word of advice: Mix in everything but the flour, including the yeast. Stir. Add HALF the flour and stir it all up. Lumps are ok. LET IT REST for about 20 minutes!!!!!!! This allows the yeast to...well...wake up and get to work, as well as allowing the flour to absorb the water and the gluten (the glue really) in the flour to start to work. Then add flour SLOWLY until you get to a soft, smooth consistency. Don't worry about the exact measurements. Go by feel!!!!! Thanks for the great crust, I've been looking for this!
thankyou for posting this wonderfull recipe! I've been trying to make good homemade pizza for 2 years now. My family loved the pizza for once. thank you for sharing
Can someone clarify, do you knead the dough before or after you let it rise. I kneaded the dough before setting it to rise and it did not rise. So should I have waited until after?
This has now become our weekly friday night pizza night meal! I have made them more than a handful of times and every time we eat way too much because it is so delicious! we LOOOOOVVVEEEE this recipe!! Thank you for sharing!!
Fantastic! Used 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil in the dough and used 2 ounces, instead of 3, of extra virgin olive oil in each of the three pans. I then set the 9 inch dough rounds in pans and flipped them over to cover both sides with the oil before covering with plates.
Here's a clone Pizza Hut sauce:
1 (8 Ounce) can tomato paste
3/4 cup water (add more if needed)
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/2 teaspoon salt
Blend all ingredients
Unbelievable recipe! Have tried dozens of pizza doughs but the search stopped here. I followed the recipe exactly and it came out absolutely perfect. My wife gave it a 10!
This is definitely a very excellent recipe that resembles Pizza Hut's. My first attempt making pizza dough and its a great success. I do not have dry milk on hands today, so i omit it and replaced the amount of water with milk.
I reduced the oil to about 3 tbsp for my 12x12 square pan, give a good crusty base yet not too oily.
Made 2 versions: a Hawaiian 12x12" pan but i precook it for too long, thus become a like baguette texture. need to reduce to 5-10 mins i guess.
and a seafood with oysters and shrimps on 8"x5" corning ware dish.
Just a little tip: Its better to blanch the oyster slightly before adding to the pizza as it pro... read more
