Note: The only ingredient unavailable at Aldi is the yeast. The cheapest place to purchase the yeast is at Sam’s Club. The price on two pounds of yeast is $3.87. The cornmeal is available in the baking section of the store.
This crust recipe yields enough for one pizza and a small order of breadsticks. I prepare my breadsticks by rolling out the dough and scoring the dough into breadstick size pieces. I then drizzle with a little olive oil, a sprinkle of garlic salt, and top with some cheese. Use the extra sauce for dipping! The kids love these breadsticks more than they do the pizza.
You can save time later this week by making an extra crust. We will be having a Chicken BBQ pizza later in the week!
Pizza Hut Style Pizza Dough
1 1/3 cups water
2 tsp sugar
1 1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp cornmeal
3 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1 1/2 tsp yeast
Add ingredients to bread machine, according to manufacturer’s settings, and run dough setting. After the machine beeps, roll out the dough. You can roll the dough into two 9×13″ pizzas (great for kid’s lunches!) or into two medium pizzas or a large pizza and an order of breadsticks (as instructed above). Parbake the crust with a drizzle of olive oil on it at 450 degrees for ten minutes. Remove the crust and add sauce and toppings. If making breadsticks, add your breadsticks at this time. Place into the oven for another ten to fifteen minutes or until golden and bubbly. Enjoy!
