Papa John's "Clone" Dough Recipe
Supreme Pizza

A few years ago some guys on a pizza making discussion forum ( were trying to figure out how to "clone" a Papa Johns pizza dough recipe. I think they came pretty close. It's not an exact match but it's pretty darn good and in many ways it's much better than delivery.

This is an American style dough recipe and contains sugar and oil. Care must be taken not to bake at too high of a temperature or the crust can easily burn due to the sugar content. This recipe is set for a 17 inch dough and works very well on a pizza screen. Check it out!

Dough Ingredients:

551 grams bread flour
308 grams warm water
0.5 tsp active dry yeast (heaping is ok)
0.5 T kosher salt
3 T Vegetable oil
2 T sugar

Pizza Ingredients:

Part Skim Mozzarella Cheese
Basic Pizza Sauce Recipe

This dough recipe is a 24 hour refrigerated rise recipe. Therefore, prepare the dough the night before and let it rise in a cold fridge. The next day bring the dough to roughly room temperature so it is easier to work with and preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

With an American style dough you don't want to toss it around too much. I find that tossing around a pizza will lead to a thin NY style center. With this pizza dough recipe you want it evenly thick so press it out well.

I form the dough mostly on my pizza peel then transfer it to the pizza screen which has been heavily sprayed with cooking spray. Spread it out to the edges of the screen. I worked the 17 inch dough recipe enough where it perfectly fit on the 17 inch screen.

First things first I added the sauce and shredded Mozzarella cheese.

Next I added the onions, peppers, sausage and pepperonis.

I baked this monster in a preheated 450 degree oven on the middle rack for about 15 minutes. I rotated the screen every 5 or so minutes.

Using the screen allows for a nice crisp American style dough. This dough recipe is soft and fluffy with a nice crisp on the bottom.
