   Recipe by: ESSENCE OF EMERIL SHOW #EE2193 In a small bowl, dissolve the
   sugar in the warm water. Sprinkle the yeast over that mixture and let stand
   for 10 minutes, to bloom (it should begin to foam). In the mixer bowl with
   the dough hook attached, add 3 cups of flour, salt and yeast mixture.
   Slowly turn it on and work the dough together. Turn it up to medium and mix
   for 5 minutes. If the dough is sticky, continue mixing and gradually add
   the remaining flour. Place this smooth ball of dough into an oiled bowl,
   cover and set aside to rise for 3 hours. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
   Punch down the dough, and remove it from the bowl onto a lightly oiled,
   9-inch by 13-inch sheet tray. Spread the dough out onto the sheet tray.
   Using your fingertips, make “dimples” in the dough. Drizzle the dough with
   olive oil, sprinkle on the basil, spread out the tomato slices, sprinkle on
   the cheese and bake for 30 - 35 minutes.
