  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Assorted toppings: mushrooms, bell peppers, onions, pepperoni, olives, etc.
