Pizza Hut Style Pizza Crust

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!

I believe it originated here.

I don't have a bread machine, so I tried doing it by hand/stand mixer.  I kneaded it for about 5-7 minutes and let rise for an hour, and then punched it down.

NOTE:  Okay, I tried it.  It was... pretty good.  Not great.  I didn't have onion powder, and maybe that lack made it a little underseasoned.  Husband liked it, however, so I'll give it another try soon.  The texture was very good.
