Easy Peazy Pizza Dough

I was sitting here thinking about what in the world I could make for lunch and really started craving PIZZA! Problem being it is well below freezing and the roads are pure ice outside. I have never tried creating a pizza dough of my own so I thought hmmm......why not. After all I still have 5 bags of flour in my pantry that I had found on sale. I Googled some basic recipes and they were ALL different.lol So I kinda winged it and combined them all to try to make what felt perfect to me.

2 Tsp Yeast
2 Tbsp Sugar
1.5 Cups of Warm Water
4.5 Cups of Flour
2 Tsp Salt
1 Tsp Oil

Now this is a fairly simple recipe because......well I enjoy simple. Start by mixing the yeast and sugar into a medium sized bowl. Pour the Water of the top and let sit for about 5 minutes. This will make the yeast active and it will get all foamy and smell kinda bad. :op Next mix together salt and 4 cups of flour and then mix into the yeast water. After you have combined this you will turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead it for about 10 minutes. Personally I hate this part and considered leaving it out.lol I didn't know how bad it would ruin the dough though. The remaining flour you may or may not need in order to keep the dough from sticking. After you have finished kneading the dough place into a bowl which you have oiled. Cover and let sit in a warm area for about an hour. Then when it is finished you can make your pizzas or whichever creation you chose :O). This dough will last for several days in the fridge and from what I read can even be frozen for several months.
