For Pizza Dough
    • 1 cup warm water
    • 1 package dry yeast
    • 2 tablespoons sugar
    • 1/4 cup olive oil
    • 2 teaspoon salt
    • 2 1/2 to 3 cups all purpose flour

Prepare Pizza Dough
    1. Add warm water to a large bowl, stir in yeast and sugar. Allow to stand 5 minutes or until yeast starts to bubble. Add olive oil and stir to combine. Add 1 cup of flour and mix until combined. Add salt and 1 cup of flour. Mix until dough starts to pull away from bowl, adding flour 1/4 cup at a time until dough ball forms. Pour onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for 3 minutes, adding flour as needed until dough is no longer sticky. Cover and allow to rise for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
    2. Punch dough down and knead to remove air. Divide into 32 equal pieces. Roll each piece to a small round.
