 Enough people asked, so here's the recipe I used. Makes a very thin crust. I
 used it to make apple turnovers, and they were great, so I would imagine it
 could make a decent pie crust.
 Pizza Dough (from Eating Well Magazine, May/June '94)
 Makes dough for 2 12" pizzas.
 1 tsp active dry yeast (I am going to try a whole pack = 2.5 tsp, to see if
 it's more bready)
 1 2/3 - 2 C unbleached or all-purpose flour
 1 cup cake flour
 1 tsp salt
 In a measuring cup or small bowl, sprinkle yeast over 1/4 cup warm water;
 stir until dissolved. In a mixing bowl, combine 1 2/3 cups of the unbleached
 or all-purpose flour, cake flour, and salt. Make a well in the center of the
 flour mixture and pour in the yeast mixture. With a wooden spoon, gradually
 stir in the flour, adding 3/4 C warm water as you mix. Turn the doug out
 onto a lightly floured surface and knead until very smooth, soft, and no
 longer sticky, about 10 minutes, adding additional flour as needed to keep
 the dough from sticking. (The dough should still be quite wet, however.)
 Set the dough in [a bowl sprayed lightly with cooking spray] and turn to
 coat lightly. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled, 2 to 2 1/2
 About 10 minutes before baking pizza, turn the dough onto the floured board,
 punch it down and knead briefly. Use a pastry cutter or a thin, sharp knife
 to divide the dough in half. (If you pull the dough apart, you risk tearing
 the gluten strands.) Pat each half into a ball and flatten into a disk. 
 The dough can be made ahead, enclosed in a plastic bag, and stored in the
 refrigerator for up to 2 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months. Defrost
 for at least 8 hours in the refrigerator and bring to room temperature
 before using.)
