Here's a comment from a "pizza hut employee":
I worked at pizza hut for 5 years making dough every morning.
First of all the water needs to be 105 degrees F exactly.
Second there is no seasonings or herbs mixed in the dough.
Third the dough is made fresh every morning,panned,allowed to rise,then stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 hrs, not overnight. After 5 hours it is thrown away. There is no lard used. The recipe is: mix in stand style mixer for 15 mins. make dough. cut into 9,16,or24oz balls for sm,med,lg.
