Step 1/5In a bowl, dissolve the yeast and sugar in a small amount of warm water.
Step 2/5Pour flour into a bowl. Form a well, then add 1 cup water and the salt. Mix well with a spatula while adding olive oil. Add the yeast-sugar mixture. Mix.
Step 3/5Knead until you get a perfectly homogeneous dough. If necessary, add a small amount of water if it is too hard to work with. Form the dough into a ball that is not sticky. Cover the bowl with a cloth, then let it rest for 1 hour at room temperature.

Chefclub's Tips & Hacks
Only cooking for two tonight? Put the two remaining pieces of dough in the freezer: all you have to do is defrost them, roll them out, and then let rest for 30 minutes before adding toppings. For an even more authentic Italian Pizza, use Manitoba flour instead: rich in gluten, it will add strength and elasticity to your dough. Buon appetito!
