Preheat oven to 450
Place ¼ warm water, yeast, and sugar in a mixing bowl. Let set for 3-5 min until yeast is active (it will look foamy)
Mix in salt, oil, and 2 cups water.
Add in flour 1 cup at a time, and stir with a wooden spoon until incorporated.
Cover (I use press and seal to cover. Then set in a warm place in your kitchen until dough doubles in size.)
When the dough is ready, turn onto a floured surface and knead the dough for about 5 min. sprinkling more flour as you knead (if needed make the dough not sticky.
Once you knead your dough, separate into for even balls (like pictured above)
With a pastry brush, brush about 2 teaspoon olive oil in the skillet.
With a rolling pin, roll out one section of the dough so it will fit in your skillet, press it into your oiled skillet ( you want it to come up on the sides of the skillet a couple of inches)
Add desired toppings and bake for about 25 min or until dough around the edges looks slightly brown.
