Pizza Hut Deep Pan
This is the best copy cat recipe for a Pizza Hut deep pan pizza. Actually in my opinion this is even better then a Pizza Hut pizza. But hey that is for you to decide. I got this recipe of Tanis who is a good friend of mine. Thanks a lot for this great share :)
For the dough:
- 2 tablespoons of oil
- 3/4 cup milk plus 2 additional tablespoons, warmed to 110 degrees
- 1 teaspoons sugar
- 2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 package instant yeast or 2 1/4 teaspoons of rapid rise yeast
- 1/2 teaspoon table salt
for the topping:
- 1 8 oz tomato sauce
- 1 tsp Italian seasonings
- mozzarella cheese
- breakfast sausage
- purple onion
Turn the oven on to 175F. Warm the milk to 110F, add the sugar and the yeast in a bowl. Let it sit for 5 minutes till frothy. Add olive oil to the yeast mix.
Then add to the flour and salt. Knead with dough hook to form a soft, dough (about 10 minutes).
Divide the dough in two. Oil the pans. Roll out the dough and put in the oven for about 10 to 15 min so it will rise a bit.
While the pizza is pre baking, put the pepperoni on a paper towel and put in the microwave for 30 seconds (depending on your microwave oven) that will remove the excess grease of the pepperoni
Take the pre baked crust out of the oven, put the oven to 400F. Dress the pizza with your toppings of choice. The ones I like a lot was with meat and vegetables. The men in my family seem to like the meat lovers version.
Put the pizza back in the oven and bake for 15 to 20 min at 400F. As the temperature rises this will give the pizza dough oven spring, and allow the dough to rise,creating the deep dish pizza like pizza hut.
