If you love Pizza Hut Pizza, you will want to try this Copycat Pizza Hut Pan Pizza Recipe. Everyone has there own personal preference when it comes to the pizza they like. But there are a lot of people who would argue that Pizza Hut makes the best pizza. It might have something to do with their deep dish pizza; even the name sounds good. This copycat Pizza Hut Recipe has you making your pizza dough from scratch, which is easy to do if you haven't tried it already. To make pizza crust from scratch, you will need to have some yeast, sugar, salt and dry milk. You'll need to add the ingredients into a bowl and add some warm water and mix. Then allow the mixture to sit for two minutes, add some oil and stir again. There will be a reaction going on inside the bowl with the yeast mixture getting foamy and bubbly. If this doesn't happen your yeast may be stale, and you will have to use some new yeast that hasn't expired.

The trick with this deep pan pizza is to use the proper pan, so you get the thick crust. You can use 9-inch cake pans, a 9-inch pie plate or a nine by 13-inch baking dish. Make sure to oil whatever pan you use. Then using a rolling pin, roll out each dough ball to about a 9-inch circle. Then place dough in cake pans. The thing about pizza is you can use whatever pizza topping you like. You want to be sure however and place them in the right order, so they cook properly. An example of the right order would start with pepperoni or ham, vegetables and cooked meats such as ground sausage or beef. Then top the pizza recipe with some shredded mozzarella cheese or the cheese of your choice. Cook the pizza until the cheese is bubbling and the outer crust is brown, about 15 minutes in a preheated oven.

There is no mistaking that pizza is one of the most popular foods in America. As far as toppings go, women are twice as likely as men to order vegetarian toppings on their pizza. About 36 percent of all pizza orders contain pepperoni, making it the most popular topping in the United States. Pizza has been around a long time with the first recorded pizzeria, called Antica Pizzeria, opened in Naples, Italy, in the year 1738. On average, each person in the United States, eats approximately 23 pounds of pizza every year; that's a lot of pizza. The first pizzeria in the U.S. was opened by Gennaro Lombardi in 1895 in the city of New York.
