Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, mix water and sugar until sugar has dissolved (start with hot water then by the time the sugar has dissolved, the water should be the perfect temperature of around 110 to 115˚F).
  2. Stir in the yeast.  Let stand until frothy/foamy, which is about 10 minutes
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl or BOSCH MIXER with the dough hook attached, mix the flour and salt together (or do it manually if you're just making a single batch of dough).  
  4. Add yeast mixture and the oil to the flour mixture.
  5. Mix well by hand (or mixer).
  6. Knead dough for 2 to 3 minutes until it is smooth and elastic, adding a little flour if it's sticky.
  7. Let the dough rest for 10 minutes. It's now ready to divide in two, stretch out and make a couple of pies!

      Thanks – yes, we didn’t talk about bakes times since this article is only about how to make the dough. However, now that I’m writing, I can say that it’s approximately 4-5 minutes for a thin pizza in an oven around 500 degrees F. You can adjust the times accordingly based on temperature, but my best suggestion is to look through your oven window with the oven light on to check for burning, etc.
