  1. Add toppings to pizza dough and bake in the lowest part of the oven for approximately 15 to 20 minutes or until dough is cooked through and golden.

  2. In a measuring cup, combine water and sugar . Dissolve dry yeast in warm water mixture. Set aside for about 5 minutes, allowing yeast to become active.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 cups of flour and salt. Make a depression in the flour mixture and add oil and foamy yeast mixture. Mix dough ingredients until they stay together. (Alternatively, place dry ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and pulse a few times. Add oil and yeast mixture and pulse again until dough begins to form a ball.) Turn out onto a floured surface and knead for 8 to 10 minutes. If the dough appears wet or sticky, add flour, a little at a time, to achieve a smooth consistency.

  4. Oil the inside of a clean dry bowl. Place the ball of dough in the bowl and roll it around so that it is covered with a layer of oil. Cover the dough with a towel and allow it to rise for about 1 1/2 hours in a warm area free of drafts.

  5. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F as you begin to roll out dough.

  6. After the dough has risen, punch it down and place on a floured surface. Roll out or press out to desired shape and place on hot stone or baking sheet.
