 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2 1/2  Teaspoons     (1 envelope) dry yeast
      1/2  Teaspoon      sugar
      3/4  Cup           lukewarm water
    2      Cups          all-purpose flour
    1      Teaspoon      salt
    3      Tablespoons   olive oil
 
 
 Mix the yeast, sugar, 1/2 cup water and 1/4 cup flour together in a bowl and
 let proof for 10 minutes. Mixture should look frothy.
  Add remaining flour, salt and olive oil and mix well. Turn out onto a
 lightly floured work surface and knead for 8-10 minutes or until dough is
 elastic and smooth. Alternately you can do this with the dough hook in a
 heavy duty mixer. Dough should feel moist and tender. If it’s too stiff, add
 a bit more water.
 
 Place dough in an oiled bowl and turn to coat it evenly. Cover and let rise
 in a warm spot in kitchen (at least 75 degrees) for 1-2 hours.
 
 Yield: 1 large rectangular pizza
