Step 1: Preheat oven to 350°F.
Step 2: In a small bowl, mix first 3 ingredients. Let stand for 5 minutes until foamy.
Step 3: In a large bowl, combine salt, flour (no need to use the full quantity - use enough flour to make a stiff dough), sugar oil, and the second 2/3 cup of warm water.
Step 4: Mix together yeast and flour mixture and knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic.
Step 5: Place dough into an oiled bowl and turn once to coat with oil. Cover and let rise until doubled in size (about 45 minutes to 1 hour).
Step 6: Sprinkle a pan with cornmeal or semolina flour. Press dough out with your fingertips (or roll out) into a circle (or use a square cookie sheet for Sicilian style pizza).
Step 7: Brush with olive oil and spread with your favorite toppings (pizza sauce, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, pepperoni, mushrooms, peppers and onions are a few suggestions).
Step 8: Bake at 350°F-400°F for 15-20 minutes or until edges are golden and lightly browned in spots and cheese is melted and bubbly.
