Quick Homemade Pizza Dough

Source: allrecipes

2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
1 tsp sugar
1 cup warm water
2 1/2 cups of bread flour
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt

Directions: Preheat your oven to 450 degrees

In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast and sugar in the warm water. Set aside for about 10 minutes.

In a mixing bowl combine your salt, olive oil, and yeast mixture. Slowly add your flour and mix with a dough hook. Continue to add flour until the dough no longer sticks to the side of your bowl. Beat until smooth. Allow dough to rest for 5 minutes.

Separate dough into two equal amounts. Roll each into a circle. Transfer to a lightly greased cookie sheet or a pizza stone. Cover with desired toppings and cook for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.
