Could you use a cast iron pan similar to what they use in pizza hut and get a crispier crust? Or is the crust just as crispy using a regular cake pan?

I have made this four times ... It is fantastic. I was surprised no one stated they used a jar sauce. Thats what We used and it was much easier and quicker.
Tastes great with our toppings ... i suggest using extra virgin olive oil in the dough, but just veg oil in the pans and just a little less as it needs most even though it seems like too much when preparing the pans.

Just made this again for the second time this WEEK! I can't even tell you in words how much we love this recipe. If I could rate it 100 stars I would. It is exactly like pizza hut pan pizza. EXACTLY!

I agree about the oil, just reduce that and this is EXACTLy like Pizza Hut. SO good! We made it a meat lovers pizza with all the toppings.

Best homemade pizza I have ever baked! My only problem was the 3 ounces of oil in every cake pan...it was WAY too much. I would cut it in halves or even thirds the next time.

As a former PH manager, I can offer these slight modifications: If you have a stand mixer with a dough hook, put the wet ingredients and yeast in the bowl first, and the dry on top. Mix on low with the hook for 14 minutes, portion, roll out, put in pan, spray edge twice around with spray and proof (rise) for about an hour or until the dough fills the pan and is about 3/4 to 1 inch high. For the absolute best results, refrigerate the dough for at lest an hour - this lets the dough set so that the sauce and toppings don't deflate your airy crust.

This recipe is legit! I didn't expect it to turn out well with all the oil and what not but it totally did! I did trade the homemade sauce from some canned sauce I had on hand but it was GREAT!

Wow, I didn't expect this to taste so much like Pizza Hut's crust and sauce but it did!! We loved it. Will be making this again.

My husband LOVES this recipe and will not allow me to make pizza crust any other way. When left to rise appropriately, it is a wonderful almost fluffy crust with a nice crisp outside. I have found that the weather has a lot to do with how long you truly need to let it rise. The more humidity the longer it takes. Wonderful find!

We love this recipe and have used it numerous times. We cut back on the oil in the pans, but need some for it to still taste like Pizza Hut pizza.
