Mediterranean Goat Cheese Pizza Recipe

In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar and water. Place the yeast on top of the water and let it sit for 5 minutes without touching it. Stir together olive oil and table salt, and warm it up while stirring with a fork. Gradually add 2 cups of flour and stir with a fork until the flour has completely dissolved and the mixture becomes sticky.

Knead the dough with 1 more cup of flour and then incorporate it. Transfer the dough to a floured work surface along with the remaining ingredients. Knead the dough for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the flour has been completely incorporated and the dough is smooth and supple. Form the dough into a ball and cover it with plastic wrap. Let it sit for 90 minutes at room temperature. Divide the dough into 4 balls.
