I found this in CopyKat recipes a few years ago and I've been using it ever since. I don't think it tastes exactly like Pizzeria Uno, but it's pretty close. I've changed the recipe a little from the original to give it more flavor.
- 1 cup warm water (110-115 degrees)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon Italian spices
- 1 teaspoon parmesan cheese
- 1⁄3 cup olive oil
- 3 -3 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 (1/4 ounce) packet active dry yeast
- measure ingredients into bread machine in order listed, making sure that the yeast does not have contact with the salt. Use the dough cycle. Mine takes 1 hour and 20 minutes. Preheat oven to 500. If using pizza stone, oven temperature should be at 450. Spread finished dough into lightly oiled pizza pan or divide into 2 small deep dish pans. Finish pizza desired. Bake until crust is lightly browned and cheese is melted 15-20 minutes.
I made this crust and was able to achieve the crossaint-like crust texture of Unos Pizza by using the following technique: Roll the dough about 1/4 inch thick.Pat with cold butter. Fold, roll, and repeat with the butter.Do this process about 3 or 4 times.then arrange in pizza pan.May let rise for 20 minutes before baking.Wella! you have crust like Unos!
This recipe wasn't too bad. I felt that even with all the spices it lacked a bit of flavor. I let it rise after taking it out of the bread machine and it fluffed-up nicely. I'm not sure what it was missing to give it that "pizza dough" flavor, maybe what the previous review said...soybean oil or canola? I think I'll keep the recipe and experiment. Couldn't hurt.
This recipe will not make an authentic Chicago deep dish pizza (Uno's or anyone else's), but will be basically bread with tomato sauce and cheese. You need to double the amount of oil (Uno's uses soybean oil, but canola is best), and for the bread machine, let the ingredients mix on the mix cycle for 1 minute, then remove the pan. Let the machine go into the knead cycle, replace the pan, and let the dough mix for two minutes. Let the dough rise for 4-8 hours. Cook on 450.
