Introduction: How to Make Pizza Hut's Dorito Crust Pizza

Pizza hut have been known for their great, yet unique pizza. However, some countries can't taste the joy of the unique flavours out there, served by the lordly Pizza Hut. Those countries are always getting tempted by youtubers and friends talking about the special pizza's they have eaten. We like pizza and we like Doritos and if these both are combined, then it is the flavouring of the decade. But, why should Australian's only get this. Why not us? So, I have gathered all my ingredients and started to work on the one and only Doritos crust pizza!!!

Step 1: Ingredients to Accomplish Your Masterpiece

Ingredients :

  • 350g plain flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1.75 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2.75 tsp baking powder
  • 4 cloves garlic/ coarsely chopped
  • 1 can of chopped or whole tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Black pepper grounded ( as per your taste )
  • 100g mature cheddar grated
  • 200g mozzarella cheese grated
  • 20 slices pizza pepperoni
  • 230g Doritos lightly salted packet.
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar (optional)

Step 2: Making the Pizza Dough (the Pizza Base)

Starting off, take a large bowl and add 350g flour, 2.75 tsp baking powder, 1tsp salt, 1tbsp oil and 170ml water and start mixing all the ingredients together. However, when you're adding the water, be careful that the dough is forming a nice ball. If the dough is too sticky, then add a bit more flour and water. Remember the dough is meant to be soft never sticky. Knead the dough for 5 minutes and start forming a large ball.

Place the larger ball of dough on an oiled, greasy kitchen foil paper and flatten it into a large pizza base, you could also use a rolling pin to do this.

Step 3: Stuffing the Crust With Cheddar Cheese

Take 150 g cheddar cheese in your hand and spread the cheese around the rim of the pizza dough. Tip:- get a circular item and place it on the flattened dough and spread the around it. Refer the pictures above. Take the edge of the pizza dough, roll it over the cheese and smudge the gaps between the stuffed crust and the pizza dough itself.

Step 4: Making the Pizza Sauce

Take canned tomatoes, 2 tbsp olive oil, 1 tsp sugar, 3/4 tsp salt and black pepper grounded, balsamic vinegar (optional) and garlic. Get all your ingredients from the list above and place it into the blender and make a pureé . The pizza sauce is ready now.

Step 5: Adding the Sauce and the Toppings

Spread pizza sauce within the stuffed crust of the pizza base. Sprinkle 200g of mozzarella cheese on the pizza sauce. Add 20 slices of pepperoni on top of the cheese and make sure they are spaced equally around the pizza. Now for the trademark of this pizza, comes the Doritos! Place the best, triangular Doritos around the crust. Tip:- To make the Doritos stick, place mozzarella cheese onto the crust, then place the Dorito chip on it. We have come so far to the end. Now it's baking time!!!

Step 6: Baking the Masterpiece and Enjoying the Greatness

Preheat the oven to 200ºC/180ºC fan/gas 6. Carefully lay the pizza into your preheated oven and set the timer to 30 minutes. Every 10 minutes, make sure to turn the pizza around. Get your pizza cutter and plates as its time to EAT!! Get ready for your tastebuds to sit on their throne, as the sensational, homemade Pizza Hut Stuffed crust, Dorito pizza is waiting.
