My favorite Pizza Crust

Ingredients

2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
1/2 teaspoon brown sugar I have used Honey in place & it taste just as good.
1 1/2 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
Directions
Very easy to make in kitchenaid or any other mixer.
In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast and brown sugar or honey in the water, and let sit for 10 minutes.
Stir the salt and flour all together in the bowl. After the yeast has set, add in the oil. Then add spoons of flour until its all mixed together. Let it knead in the mixer until the dough isn't sticky
Place the dough into a well oiled bowl, and cover with a cloth. Let the dough rise until double; this should take about 1 hour. Punch down the dough, and form a tight ball. Allow the dough to relax for a minute before rolling out.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). If you are baking the dough on a pizza stone, you may place your toppings on the dough, and bake immediately. If you are baking your pizza in a pan, lightly oil the pan, and let the dough rise for 15 or 20 minutes before topping and baking it.
Bake pizza in preheated oven, until the cheese and crust are golden brown, about 15 to 20 minutes.
