Pizza Hut’s Cavatini Recipe

Pizza Hut sells “Stuffed Crust” pizza, with the outermost edge wrapped around a coil of mozzarella cheese; “Hand-Tossed,” more like traditional pizzeria crusts; “Thin ‘N Crispy”, a thin, crispy dough which was Pizza Hut’s original style; “Dippin’ Strips pizza”, a pizza cut into small strips that can be dipped into a number of sauces; and “The Edge pizza,” where the toppings nearly reach to the edge of the pizza. There was also formerly a crust that was not as thick as Pizza Hut’s pan pizza, and not as thin as its thin crust. This crust was used on the Full House XL pizza and discontinued in 2007.

Pizza Hut’s Cavatini Recipe


  • 4 cups uncooked assorted pasta, cooked al dente;
  • 2 pounds ground round;
  • 2 tablespoons oil;
  • 1 1/2 packages onion soup mix;
  • 28 ounces stewed tomatoes, sliced;
  • 1 Can V-8 juice – (6 oz);
  • 1 jar Prego meat-flavored spaghetti sauce – (16 oz);
  • 1/2 cup grape jelly;
  • Mozzarella cheese slices;
  • Provolone cheese slices.


Brown the meat in oil. Crumble with a fork, browning until the pink color disappears. Turn heat to low. Add remaining ingredients, except cheese. Stir lightly to combine. Allow sauce to cook, uncovered about 20 minutes, but do not let it boil. Alternate layers of cooked pasta, the sauce and slices of mozzarella and half the provolone sufficiently to fill individual au gratin dishes – or small oven-proof serving dishes. This recipe yields 6 servings.
