Gather your ingredients
Stir together the warm water, yeast, and sugar. Let sit for 10 minutes while it foams.
While slowly mixing, add salt and olive oil.
Slowly add the flour. With each addition, wait for it to be mixed before adding a little more. Continue until all flour is added.
Add a little water if your dough appears dry (just a little water goes a long way – be careful)
After it is well mixed, form a ball with the dough.
Stick in a covered container in a warm (not hot) place for it to rise. In this case, it was a beautiful day outside, so I placed it on the deck and gave it an hour.
After an hour or two, the dough is ready for your to shape! Be sure you're doing this on a very well floured surface. Parchment paper isn't a bad idea either.
Maybe grab a helper…..
Or 2 helpers!!!!
You want to get this dough stretched thin and smooth
You'll know when your crust is ready. 😉 Note how I rolled up the edges on two of these to form an outer crust. I haven't gotten wild enough to stuff that crust with cheese, but the day is coming soon. 😉
