Default Using Domestic Pilsner

So, reading through some threads that debate using continental vs domestic pilsner, it seems like most people recommend using continental. So what is domestic pilsner used for? Can anyone recommend a good recipe? I'm specifically thinking of brewing belgian-style ales with domestic pilsner malt. I know it's possible to do so, but I'm wondering what is the best use of domestic pilsner?

If you add a touch of Munich or Vienna it will be closer to Continental. It doesn't matter, you can brew absolutely anything with it as is. It has a less malty, cleaner American flavor. Most Belgians and Hefeweizens have strong yeast flavors that are at least as important as the malt flavor. BGS or a Wit would be great. Best would probably be a clean American lager or Blond ale.
