Pizza Hut Pizza

Making a Pizza Hut style pizza at home takes some time and practice to perfect, but it can save significant money for families who enjoy pizza on a regular basis. Pizza Hut offers a variety of pizza styles including deep dish pizzas, thin 'n crispy crusts and a wide range of pizza toppings. Preparing homemade pizza allows for customization in the ingredients, seasonings and toppings that is unavailable at the restaurant. For those on a restrictive diet, modifying the basic recipe for gluten intolerance by using special flour, or lowering the salt content as needed offers an opportunity for pizza enjoyment that may not be normally possible. The copycat Pizza Hut pizza recipe outlined below is for the chain's basic hand-tossed traditional style of pizza crust.
