Pizza Hut® A Pizza Inside A Pizza Recipe

By Pizza Hut« Restaurant Chain

This popular pizza can be made at home. It starts with purchased or homemade pizza dough and uses 6 kinds of cheese, plus your favorite toppings, of course.

Prep Time: 15áminutes

Cook Time: 15áminutes

Total Time: 30áminutes


  • 2 cans refrigerated pizza dough
  • 2-3/4 cups shredded mozzarella (divided use)
  • 3/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 3/4 cup shredded Cheddar
  • 3/4 cup shredded provolone
  • 2 Tablespoons grated Parmesan
  • 2 Tablespoons grated Romano
  • Toppings of your choice (pepperoni, bell peppers, olives, etc.)
  • 1 jar pizza sauce


Preheat oven to 475 degrees F.

On a lightly floured surface, unroll first pizza dough. Using a rolling pin dusted with flour, roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Place in a well-greased 12-inch perforated pizza pan. Trim dough with a knife or pizza wheel to fit inside the diameter of the pan. Pierce dough with a fork every half-inch to prevent air bubbles. (This will ultimately be your top crust.)

Prebake this crust for 5 minutes; remove crust from pan and place on a wire rack to cool.

Prepare the second crust for the pan in the same way, but remove the excess dough around the edges by rolling a rolling pin over the top of the pan to form a lip on the crust. Pierce with a fork.

Combine 3/4 cup mozzarella, Monterey Jack, Cheddar, provolone, Parmesan, and Romano cheeses. Spread evenly over this crust. Put the partially baked crust on top of the cheese layer.

Spread 1/2 cup of pizza sauce over this top crust, then scatter the toppings of your choice, starting with meats, then vegetables. Finish with the final 2 cups of mozzarella.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and golden brown.

Yield: 8 servings
