    Chef Dimples's Note:

    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.

      My 8th grade daughter made this for her FCS dinner assignment to make for the family at home. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised with the results. Easy to make bake. Great instructions. The crust turns out light ad fluffy (I rubbed one of the crusts with EVOO before baking). The sauce is pretty good. We will probably make it again cuz it is a kid friendly recipe. Thanks for posting.

      This was a pretty easy, basic pizza crust recipe. It was a little bit bland even after adding oregano, fennel and basil. I think it could maybe use something to up the flavor but a good recipe nonetheless. I made 2 pizzas out of this. One was a personal size pan pizza and the crust was so thick I could hardly bite into it. Used the recipe for Ultimate Pizza Sauce and the pizza was terrific. This was my first homemade pizza and I can't wait to try again.
