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 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.

I did not make the sauce. I only made the dough from this recipe. I cooked it in my cast iron skillet for 15 minutes. I divided the dough into 2 portions, instead of three. It was absolutely fantastic! This is the best dough recipe I have found. I will be making it over and over again! I used my own sauce, so I cannot comment on that at all.

This is a great recipe and I will try it tonight. Excited! What is a serving size: Is it a fourth of a pie?

This recipe was completely spot on! I enjoyed every bit of my pizza and wished there was more left over. The pizza had great flavor and the ingredients were easy to come by. I am not a big baker/cook but I do enjoy a good challenge every now and then. I used one large deep dish pizza pan to make my pizza to have that Pizza Hut look. The amount of vegetable oil that is called out in the recipe could be shaved down a bit I think. Next time I think I will use maybe use half to three quarters of the original amount. To speed up the proofing I placed the dough in a metal bowl coated with flour and placed it in a warm oven instead of room temp. The dough came out fantastic and spread nicely in the pan. The pizza sauce I though was amazing and tasted almost spot on, I was surprised at how much flavor just tomato sauce can have and how easy it is to make my own pizza sauce with home ingredients. The pizza itself didnít take long to cook, and in fact even though it was a 14in. pizza it still cooked in about the same time. I usually like to reserve the last minute for a good broil. Just when the pizza is looking done turn on your broiler and let the broiler cook the top of your pizza, it looks like a professional pizza then and not homemade. I do this even with frozen pizzas, the pepperonis cook to a crisp. I will be making this recipe again soon with friends as it would be a good group activity to do some night, and the reward is delicious.

1 packet of yeast = 2 1/4 tsp or 1/4 oz

The pizza came out beautifully, and the crust is just what i wanted, however, personally i think the sauce is a bit heavy on the marjoram and oregano

Tastes like pizza hut. You could put it in a pizza hut box and totally fool someone it's that dead on

Awesome recipe! I bake these with bread flour, and just spray the cake tins with Pam instead of pouring oil into the pans. I bake it at 400 for 5 minutes before I add the toppings so the dough doesn't collapse. Turns out perfect every time!

I've made this with bread flour, I believe, and it was awesome. I pulled up the recipe again and am wondering what everyone else is using...? All purpose or bread?
