How to make a basic pizza dough

I had often wonder how they made the pizza’s so perfect and after much research, I came up with this great recipe.



1 tsp yeast
Pinch sugar
3 cups flour
2 tbs olive oil
1 tsp salt

In small bowl combine water with sugar, sprinkle yeast and leave for about 15 minutes until frothy.  Combine two cups flour with yeast, salt and olive oil mix until smooth.
Add more flour if needed to make smooth dough. Cover and let rest until doubled in bulk.
After the first rising the dough is now ready to be used for pizza. Preheat oven to 400F.

With a rolling pin or using your hands stretch or gently roll the dough into the thickness and size you prefer. Add a coating of tomato sauce and top the pizza with your chosen toppings.  Sprinkle with grated cheese and bake in heated oven for 15 minutes.
