Pizza Hut Thin Crust Pizza Dough
The crust for this Pizza Hut classic has to be made ahead of time, and is easily enough for at least two 16-inch pizzas, or more depending on how thin you roll the dough.
- 2 cups water
- 1/2 teaspoon yeast (proofed in water)
- 4 cups flour
- 3 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
- 1 1/2 cup cake flour
- 2 teaspoons salt
- Combine all ingredients in a mixer and knead for 10 minutes. Place in large bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Allow to ferment as long as possible (12-24 hours). Punch down dough now and then when you get the chance.
- Preheat oven to 550 degrees F.
- Roll the dough as thin as desired. (roll, flour and flip, until you end up with a shape equal to 90% the size of your pan, as it will stretch when you transfer the dough. (make sure you oil your pan)
- For regular pizza, add your toppings and bake for 10 minutes. However, since this particular recipe was meant for light toppings, you'll need to oil the crust, then prick it with a fork and pre-bake for 3 minutes. Now remove from oven, add your favorite toppings and return to oven for 10-15 minutes or till cheese is bubbly and outer edge of crust is a light golden brown.

Even better when made in the correct pan. These are the same ones they use at pizza hut. Perforated bottoms that allow steam to vent away. Makes a great crispy crust. I bought them on Amazon for like $15.00. http://bit.ly/PizzaHutPan

These are NOT the original pans. The original pans were solid, with a cut lip, not rolled. You would place the dough over the pan and use a rolling pin to roll across the pan, cutting off the excess. These are good pans, if I can not find the original pans I will probably buy these. Just wanted you to know they must be a second generation pan from after Pepsico buy out the company.
