I found this recipe in one of my Amish Cookbooks "Cooking with the Horse and Buggy People". It makes a soft, thick crust that my family loves. My seven-year old son rated it as "1,000 thumbs up". This is a doubled version of the recipe to make 2 pizzas. If you don't like an extra-thick crust, use 1/2 of this recipe for 2 pizzas.

  1. Preheat oven to 425 deg F.
  2. Mix together all the dry ingredients. Add the warm water and oil, mix well. Knead dough a few times on a lightly floured surface. Put dough back in bowl, and lightly coat dough with oil. Cover and let rest or 5 minutes. While dough is resting, mix together all ingredients for the pizza sauce.
  3. Divide dough in half, and press each half into an oiled pizza pan. Cook dough for 2 minutes, then take out and let cool. Put sauce then desired toppings on pizza. Cook for 18-20 minutes or until crust is lightly browned and cheese is melted.
