Pizza Hut Personal Pan Pizza Copycat



I've seen this recipe a few times recently kicking around the internet, so I took the hint, and tried it for myself!  And I was NOT disappointed!

1 1/3 cup warm water (105 degrees F)  $0
1/4 cup non-fat dry milk  $0.55
1/2 teaspoon salt $0.01
4 cups flour  $0.80
1 tablespoon sugar  $0.10
1 Tbsp dry yeast  $0.25
2 tablespoons vegetable oil (for dough)  $0.05
9 ounces vegetable oil (3 ounce per pan)  $ 1.00
butter flavored cooking spray  $0.10
1 cup Tomato Sauce (I used jarred pasta sauce)  $0.40
Pizza Toppings - Cost depends on what you use - What I used cost $2.66

Total Cost $5.92 @ 4 Servings = $1.48 / serving



1.  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.



2.  Turn out on to a flat surface and knead for about 10 minutes.



3.  After the kneading workout - divide into 3 balls.

4.  In three 9" cake pans, put 3 ounces 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.  I know I was very skeptical about the amount of oil, and I wondered who actually has three 9" cake pans.  I used two 8" and one 10".



5.  Spray the outer edge of dough with cooking spray. Place in a cold oven with only the light on and allow to rise for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.


6.  Preheat oven to 475'.  Spoon 1/3 cup sauce on dough and spread to within 1" of edge.  Top with desired pizza toppings (I used leftover bacon, onion, sliced olives and cheese)


7.  Cook until edges are brown and cheese is melted & bubbling - about 20 minutes.



This was a great make-at-home pizza!  Definitely better than any frozen pizza,.  It was VERY filling, and although it makes 3 pizzas, it would for surely feed 4+. It was exactly a Pizza Hut Personal Pan Pizza!!! The crust was great - very thick - and great tasting - although the amount of oil in the pans scared me!  It works though.
