Combine yeast, water and sugar. Let stand for 10 minutes. Add oil; mix. Add salt to flour and mix. Add yeast mixture to flour and add enough water to work dough +/- 1 ˝ cups with hands. Spread 2 T of oil across top of dough and work dough again with hands. Add another T of oil and work again on floured surface. Knead dough 8-10 minutes until you “feel life”.
