      I have been trying out various pizza dough recipes for years now unable to find the perfect texture and flavor I was looking for. I am so glad I came across this one. It is THE dough recipe I will use from now on. (I haven't made the sauce yet) I made a few slight changes. I heat the oil for the bottom of the pan with a clove of garlic on medium heat until the garlic "fizzes". Then I set it aside to come to room temperature and until the dough is ready to go in the pans. I also always let my yeast mixture sit for longer than stated, anywhere from 10-20 minutes, and I add the salt to the flour.

      This dough seems to be very forgiving too. The first 2 times I made this I didn't have powdered milk so I substitued warmed milk for a portion of the water. The 3rd time (this evening), I completely forgot to add the oil to the dough. It came out really dry and I thought that I added too much flour. I ended up adding a few tablespoons of water to the dough until it felt "right". I remembered the oil when it was much too late but it still turned out GREAT! The kids even said that it was the best pizza I have ever made.

      The type of pan really makes a difference too. I have an actual Pizza Hut pan that my mother let me have. (she got it from someone that use to work for Pizza Hut 20 years ago) It is a thick, dark deep dish type pan. The pizza omes out perfect. The crust comes out exactly like thiers. Soft on the inside with a thin layer of crispy golden crust. My airbake pizza pans don't come out as well, but they are still really good pizzas.

      This recipe makes a great pan pizza! I do have to say tasting the crust by itself, it is very similar to the taste of pizza huts. I didnt make the pizza sauce recipe. I only put about 1 1/2 - 2 oz. of oil into the bottom of the pans and it was perfect. At 475, I put them on the bottom oven rack and they are done in aprox. 10 - 12 minutes with a nice brown and crunchy crust! I couldnt believe how crispy the crust came out each time but was still soft and fluffy in the middle. I didnt make the whole 3 pizzas at once since theres just two of us. I made one the first night and put the dough in the fridge to make the other two a couple days later. The last two still came out as perfect as the first. Great recipe! I will always use this when I'm craving pan pizza!

      We loved this recipe! The sauce was good, I thought it had just the right amount of spices. We put 2oz oil on bottom of pans instead of 3..but I wouldn't put less than that, it really makes the crust a nice golden brown on bottom. We put one teaspoon of yeast. Pizza's were done in 10 min...but my oven tends to cook fast. I actually thought this was better than Pizza Hut. Thanks for posting!
