Pizza Magarita

4 Servings
3 cups of unbleached all-purpose flour
1 cups warm water
half tablespoon of sugar
1 package of active dry yeast
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon salt

Half a can of can sliced tomatoes
1 pound fresh mozzarella
fresh basil

Prepare yeast by mixing yeast, water, and sugar in a bowl. Leave the yeast alone for 8 minutes. When you see bubbles, you will know that the yeast is ready. Mix yeast, flour, olive oil, and salt. Add water until dough is soft. Too much water will result in sticky dough. Let the dough sit for 1-2 hours. Once the dough rises, kneed it and coat it with olive oil. Then flatten it with a roller. For the sauce, heat the sliced tomatoes and add some salt. After it is mixed, pour it on the dough and spread evenly. Slice some mozzarella and place them on the pizza. Make sure oven was preheated to 450 degrees and place the pizza in it. After 8 minutes, take out the pizza and sprinkle with fresh basil.
