I have been using a good recipe from this board for a while now. Its thin, but not too. Id love to have a buttery crust recipe. Im thinking like pizza hut's pan pizza crust, only in a thinner version. Any suggestions?

This copycat recipe makes 4 9" pan pizzas.

Ingredients:
1 1/3 cup Warm water (105F)
1/4 cup Non-fat dry milk
1/2 teaspoon Salt
4 cups Flour
1 tablespoon Sugar
1 pk. Dry yeast
2 tablespoons Vegetable oil (for dough)
9 ounces Vegetable oil (3 oz. per pan)
Butter flavored Pam

***Sauce: ***
1 (8 Ounce) Can Tomato Sauce
1 teaspoon Dry Oregano
1/2 teaspoon Marjoram
1/2 teaspoon Dry Basil
1/2 teaspoon Garlic salt

Directions:

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.

Sauce:

Combine ingredients and let sit for 1 hour.

For Each Nine Inch Pizza: 1. Preheat oven to 475F 2. Spoon 1/3 cup sauce on dough and spread to within 1" of edge. 3. Distribute 1 1/2 Oz. shredded mozzarella cheese on sauce. 4. Place toppings of your choice in this order: Pepperoni or Ham Vegetables Meats (cooked ground sausage or beef) 5. Top with 3 Oz. mozzarella cheese 6. Cook until cheese is bubbling and outer crust is brown.

For crispy crust, you need to think more like a cracker than a bread; thus, less protein and no fat.

Thank you both for the replies.


Im curious, what type of cheese do you put on your pizzas? Do you grate it yourself, or do you buy it pre shredded? Is it mozz or provolone?


I buy it pre-shredded, usually whatever the manufacturer calls "pizza blend." I totally preffer Sargento, Kraft next. Sargento is so stinkin expensive most of the time though. When its on sale, I buy a bunch, usually enough for 3 pizzas.


I was just curious!

My usual cheese is mozzarella, but Kroger often (nearly always) has their brand of shredded packaged cheeses on sale and I keep them stocked up.
