Over the years we've posted about the Amish and their pizza recipes at least 100 times. The Amish are no different than anyone else in at least one respect: pizza is a popular, popular food. So popular that inventive Amish cooks find ways to "pizza-fy" other foods. Our pizza recipes on Amish365 run the gamut. Some were variations of pizza recipes that made a lot of sense like pizza casserole, pizza loaf & even pizza chili!
But we have to admit the recipes keep getting more and more creative; from pizza muffins, to taco pizza and dessert pizzas the Amish have shown us a pizza concoction is a worthwhile kitchen experiment. But SIGH, these other concoctions are all wonderful but I'm not sure that anything could beat honest-to-goodness pizza
If the pizza is done right I could eat pizza for almost every meal. So we decided to curate the ultimate Amish pizza recipe roundup post possible so if you really wanted to have pizza everyday at least you can switch it up! We do have a comprehensive list of all our Amish pizza recipes here, but we've broken these babies down into the following.
Pizza Recipes that Push the Envelope
PIZZA MOUNTAIN PIES: Okay, this one might give a traditional pizza pie a run for its money in my book, this has a lot of qualities of a pizza, it's just all wrapped in a crust. Not to mentioned they are historically cooked over a campfire in an old-school sandwich press. Panini press move over!
PIZZA CHILI: Yum....try this homemade chili using, you guessed it, pizza sauce.
PIZZA SLOPPY JOES: Oh wow, this recipe combines two of favorites: sloppy joes and pizza!
HOMEMADE PIZZA BURGERS: Again, a recipe that combines the best of both worlds: pizza and burgers.
CRISPY PIZZA QUESADILLAS: The Amish have been mixing Mexican and Italian cuisine in some really wild ways. Including these crunchy quesadillas!
Pizza Staples like Crust & Sauce
THE AMISH COOK'S PIZZA CRUST: Every household needs a good pizza crust recipe. Why not stick with tradition?
KETCHUP PIZZA SAUCE: In a pinch this can be a substitute if you're missing tomato paste!
HOMEMADE PIZZA POCKETS: A cross between a mini calzone and pizza pocket. Stuff it with whatever toppings you love!
COPYCAT PIZZA HUT BREADSTICKS: Breadsticks are a requirement in our household when we order pizza. Who knows why a seemingly more boring version of bread and sauce made its way into the pizza world as a staple, but they are yummy!
Pasta & Pizza Just Makes Sense
AMISH PIZZA SPAGHETTI: Creamy spaghetti mixed with cheesy pizza sauce and baked off in the oven!
Just Put it in a Pan Pizza Bake
PIZZA BISCUIT CASSEROLE: Hmmm, what do you get when you marry two Amish favorites: pizza and biscuits? Why, you get pizza biscuit casserole, of course!
AMISH VEGGIE PIZZA BAKE DELUXE: This was an amazing vegetable pizza that I stumbled upon at an Amish potluck.
Dessert Pizzas & Pizza Treats
STRAWBERRY PIZZA DELUXUE: Strawberry Jello and fresh berries on a crumbly crust! I guess this can be considered pizza?

Hey Kevin, We're originally from the Syracuse, NY area, but I spent 6yrs of my life in Utica(3 for nursing school+3 for my husbands Family Practice residency.) Do you remember the name of the pizza place? There was one toward downtown that had the BEST Sicilian pizza ever! Unfortunately, I don't know if the place exists any longer as I'm talking 35-36yrs ago.
As for Pizza Hut- to me it does seem greasier and I think they changed their brand of sausage. Don't really care for it. Guess I'd rather make my own.
In the meantime- blessings! Carol
Carol, you know, it may actually have been a Sicilian pizza place...I have a vague memory of that, that'd be funny if it were the same place...I mean there can't be THAT many pizza places in Utica...
