Directions:
Combine yeast, sugar and warm water. Stir to blend. Let stand until foamy about 5-10 minutes.

Stir in the salt, add the flour, a little a time, mixing at the lowest speed until all the flour has been incorporated and the dough gathers into a ball. This should take about 4 minutes.

Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic. Transfer to an oiled bowl and turn to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to sit until doubled. About 1 1/2 hours.

Punch down, divide into 8 pieces and gather into a ball. Keeping all covered while working, allow to rest 15 minutes.

Using a rolling pin, roll each ball in a circle about 1/4 inch thick. Make sure circle is totally smooth. Do not stack them.

Preheat pizza stone to 500. Put 2 rounds at a time 3-4 minutes.

Let cool, they will deflate.
