Pizza Hut’s Pan Pizza

1 1/3 cups warm water (105° F.)
1/4 cup nonfat dry milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 cups flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 package dry yeast
2 tablespoons oil
9 ounces oil (3 oz. per pan)
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. Turn out on to a flat surface and knead for about 10 minutes. Divide dough into three balls. In three 9″ cake pans, put 3 oz. 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. Spray the outer edge of dough with Pam. Cover with a plate.  Place in warm area and allow to rise for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
1 8 Ounce Can Tomato Sauce

Distribute 1 1/2 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese on sauce. Place toppings of your choice in this order: Pepperoni or Ham Vegetables, Meats (cooked ground sausage or beef).

Homemade Pizza With Self-Rising Crust

For the Crust:
2-1/2 cups unbleached flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dry yeast
3/4 cup water
3 tablespoons canola oil
For the Sauce:
8 ounce can of “no salt added” tomato sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning OR 1/2 teaspoon basil & 1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon olive oil for flavoring (optional)
2 cups part-skim mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
1/2 lb ground turkey or ground beef
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
First prepare the crust.  In a medium sized bowl combine the flour, baking powder, salt and yeast.  Stir it up to distribute the salt and yeast evenly.  Add the water and oil.  You may need a spoonful or two more of water if the day is dry. Mix the dough with a wooden spoon until it forms a big ball in the middle of the bowl.  It will be a little stiffer than biscuit dough.  Knead the dough about 10 or 12 times and then form it into a ball.  Place the ball in the center of 16-inch pizza pan or a 9 by 13-inch rectangular pan.  Use your hands and a rolling pin to press the dough into the pan.  I find a rolling pin most effective in this effort.  The dough will be a medium thickness.  Allow it to rest while you prepare the meat and the sauce.
In a large cereal bowl combine the tomato sauce, Italian Seasoning (or basil and oregano), garlic powder, sugar, onion powder and oil.  Mix it well and spread it on the pizza crust.  If desired, you may substitute canned or prepared spaghetti sauce for this sauce.  
Cook the ground turkey or beef in a medium-sized skillet.  Break the meat up into small bit with a fork as you cook it.  Cook the meat until it is evenly brown without a speck of pink remaining.  Drain off the fat.  Add 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon pepper and 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder to the cooked meat.  Stir briefly and remove from heat.  Now scatter the meat overtop of the pizza crust and the sauce.  Arrange it evenly. Top the sauce and the meat with 2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese and a light sprinkling of Parmesan Cheese.  If desired, you may add other toppings of your choice.
Bake the prepared pizza at 400° for about 15 to 20 minutes.  Carefully remove it from the oven and allow it to cool for a few minutes.  It’s Use a pizza cutter to make 12 slices.  Each serving is 2 slices.
