In a warm mixing bowl, add warm water (about 100F), yeast and half the sugar. Mix then wait about 7 minutes or until you see bubbles forming in the mixture.
Mix the flour, remaining sugar, and salt in a bowl. If you're adding some dried herbs like thyme or rosemary they can get mixed in now.
Attach a dough hook to a stand mixer then add the flour and mix on low for about 1 minute. Increase to medium speed until the dough comes together in a ball.
Lightly flour your work surface and knead the dough until it's smooth and springs back when poked.
Use olive oil to coat the dough ball. Place it in a greased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and place in a warm draft-free place to rise for about an hour or until the dough has doubled in size.
Preheat the oven to 450F degrees. When the dough has doubled, press it down and shape into a disk. You can knead It a few times If the texture needs some smoothing out or be fancy and twirl it in the air like a professional.
After your dough has been shaped you can brush with olive oil then add sauce, cheese and your choice of toppings.
Bake at 450F for about 12-15 minutes or until golden.
