Mix 1 cup of the flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a big mixing bowl. Add the water and oil and mix until thoroughly combined. Gradually add the remainder of the flour until the dough is smooth and pliable. Form into a ball; cover and let rest for 5-10 minutes. Grease a pizza pan (I use a generous amount of olive oil).
