Recipe Notes

To Prepare the Pizza Dough:

Add the half teaspoon of the sugar to your warm water, not hot water, stir trying to dissolve the yeast and let it sit in your mixing bowl until the yeast starts bubbling. When it has some foaming action, you’re ready to add the rest of the sugar, oil and flour.

Gradually add in more flour until the dough is no longer sticky. You want a soft, pliable ball–not a hard dense one.

Let your dough rest and grow, covered for at least one hour to 1-1/2 hours.

After that time, the dough should have grown slightly. Take that dough and put it in your greased 12-inch x 12-inch round pizza pan and stretch to fit before adding the Mediterranean Tuna Pizza fixings.
