Sausage Pan Pizza

 Sausage Pan Pizza

I'm not a huge fan of pizza but I really like it. I can say that when the mood hits me I have to have it right away.  The only pizza I will eat is Pizza Hut pizza and mostly because of the tender buttery crust.  So after years of ordering their pizzas, I decided to make my own.  I searched for a copycat recipe and made at least a dozen before I finally found my match.  
This is exactly the Pizza Hut buttery soft and tender crust you get when you order a pizza from them…..I have never ordered a pizza since!  I make mine in a 9 inch cast iron skillet but you can use regular 9 inch cake pans.  You can make your own pizza sauce if you’d like, I use store bought for mine.
Sausage Pan Pizza
1 1/3 cup warm water (105 degrees)
1/4 cup non-fat dry milk powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 cups flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 package dry yeast
2 tablespoons vegetable oil (for dough)
9 ounces vegetable oil (3 tablespoons per pan)
butter flavored cooking spray

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 dough out onto a flat surface and knead for about 10 minutes. Divide dough into three balls. 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. 

Spray the outer edge of dough with cooking spray. Cover with a plate. Place in warm area and allow to rise for 60 to 90 minutes. 

For Each Nine Inch Pizza: Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Spoon some sauce on dough and spread to within 1" of edge.  Add shredded mozzarella cheese on top of the sauce.

For this pizza I added cooked crumbled sausage but you can any you’d like.  Once you add your toppings, sprinkle more cheese on top.  Cook until cheese is bubbling and outer crust is brown.

     NOTE:   This recipe makes 3 nine inch pizzas.  You can freeze the
     dough and thaw it to make fresh pizzas or you can make up your 
     extra pizzas and freeze them whole.
