My Pizzaria!

My Pizza

4 cups all purpose flour
1 Tablespoon sugar or honey
3 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon instant yeast
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 3/4 cups room-temperature water

Beat together all, knead for 15 minutes, place dough in oiled bowl, cover and allow to rise for 1 hour or until doubled. Punch down, dump our onto floured surface. Cover and let sit for 10 minutes. Divide into 2 lumps of flour. Roll out into a circle or square, on a floured surface to about a ½ thickness and size of pizza sheet. Adding flour as need be to assist rolling. Place each round onto oiled pizza pan or baking sheet. Brush surface of each with olive oil, gently, cover again with plastic wrap and allow to rise for 25 to 30 minutes. Uncover and add sauce to top, and all the toppings you want.
*Bake in a preheated, very hot, 400° oven for about 20 minutes, checking on it during baking so the cheese doesn‘t burn.
