- package of active dry yeast (about 1 & 1/8 teaspoon)
- 1 and ˝ teaspoon of granulated sugar
- teaspoon of salt

- This dough does not have to rise. In a large bowl, combine the warm water with the yeast, sugar, oil and salt. Mix until the yeast dissolves. Using a wooden spoon, mix in the flour, ˝ cup at a time. Once it’s all mixed together, knead it on a floured counter until it feels elastic. Divide into 4 parts, roll each into a ball and let it rest for 10 minutes.
- Assemble the toppings. You can use a jar of prepared pizza sauce or make a simple sauce yourself by combining a 15 ounce can of tomato sauce with 1 and ˝ Tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and 1 Tablespoon of Italian seasoning.
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. A pizza stone will deliver a crispy crust, whether thick or thin. Otherwise a baking sheet will do. Shape each individual dough ball into a round crust about 1/8 of an inch thick. Add the sauce and a few toppings (not too many) and sprinkle on pizza cheese.
- Bake at 425 degrees for 11 to 17 minutes turning once or twice after 10 minutes if needed.
