Pizza Hut Marinara Dipping Sauce

This Pizza Hut Marinara Dipping Sauce recipe is very simple to make, and can be used as a dip for appetizers like bread sticks, cheese sticks, fried zucchini and much more. You can also dip your pizza in it for an extra-saucy flavor. The dipping sauce is very similar to a traditional marinara that you'd pour over a plate of pasta. but is somewhat thicker and has some added romano cheese.[1] While the restaurant doesn't give away its own recipe, this version comes very close.

  • If you don't have a Italian seasoning blend at home, you can improvise by mixing a tablespoon each of dried basil, dried parsley, dried marjoram, dried oregano, and dried thyme. Use only the amount you need for the recipe, and then store the rest in an airtight container.[5] If you like your Italian food on the spicy side, you can also add a tablespoon of ground red pepper, like cayenne.
