  1. Stir together the water, yeast and sugar; set aside for 5 minutes, until it’s foamy.

  2. Add 2 1/2 cups of the flour, salt and oil and stir until the dough comes together.

  3. On a floured surface, knead the dough for about 8 minutes, until it’s smooth and elastic. Add more flour if the dough is sticky.

  4. Place the dough in an oiled bowl and turn to coat all over. Cover and set aside in a warm place for half an hour to an hour, until it doubles in size.

  5. Roll the dough out so it's about two inches larger than the pizza pan.

  6. Spread cheese around edge of pan, spoon pizza sauce over cheese.

  7. Fold over the edges to form ring and press to seal. Prepare remainder of pizza as you like it.

  8. Bake on a pizza stone or cookie sheet at 450 degrees for 15-20 minutes, until bubbly and golden.
