    1.0 tbsp Yeast, fast rising
    1.0 tbsp Salt
    1.0 tbsp Granulated Sugar
    2.0 cup (8 fl oz) Water, warm


Add yeast and sugar to warm water, let stand 5 minutes. Add flour and salt and knead for several minutes, dough will be sticky. Shape into ball and put in bowl, cover. Let rise for 20 minutes, then fold over on itself a few times, and cover again. Repeat this two more times. Should get smoother and less sticky each time. Put pizza stone in oven and set to 450F.
