 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      1/4 ounce pa  (2 1/2 teaspoons) active dry
                         -- yeast
      1/2  teaspoon      sugar
    2      tablespoons   olive oil
    2      1/4 cups      unbleached all-purpose flour -- (up to 2)
      1/2  teaspoon      salt
 In a large bowl proof the yeast with the sugar in 1/3 cup lukewarm water for 10
  minutes, or until it is foamy. Stir in an additional 1/3 cup lukewarm water, o
 il, 2 cups flour, and salt and blend mixture until it forms a dough. Knead the 
 dough on a floured surface, incorporating as much of the remaining 1/4 cup flou
 r as necessary to prevent the dough from sticking, for 5 to 10 minutes, or unti
 l it is smooth and elastic.
 Alternatively, the dough may be made in a food processor. Proof the yeast as de
 scribed above and in a food processor combine it with the remaining ingredients
 . Process the mixture until it forms a ball, adding more water, 1 teaspoon at a
  time, if it is too dry, or more flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, if it is too we
 t, and knead the dough by processing it for 15 seconds.
 Put the dough, prepared by either method, in an oiled bowl and turn it to coat 
 it with the oil. Let the dough rise, covered with plastic wrap, in a warm place
  for 1 hour, or until it is double in bulk, and punch it down. The dough is now
  ready to be formed into pizzas.
 Yield: Makes enough dough for one 14-inch pizza or four 7-inch pizzas
