Easy Peasy Pizza/stromboli Dough

This is a great pizza dough when you are getting things together last minute because you only need to let it rise for an hour and you are good to go. I've used this dough for both pizza and stromboli's and it is really good with both.  If you want to make it a little healthier you can swap out some of the white flour with whole wheat.

1 pkg yeast
1 tsp sugar
1 TBS oil
1 c warm water
3 c flour
1 tsp salt

1. Combine the yeast, sugar, oil, and water in a bowl.  Let it sit until it is foamy, about 5 minutes.
2. Combine salt and flour.
3.  Gradually add flour mixture to yeast mixture, mixing thoroughly, until a ball forms.
4.  Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth about 3-5 minutes, adding more flour as necessary.
5. Oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to oil all sides.  Cover the bowl and set in a warm place (I normally just stick it in my cold oven) until it has doubled in size, about an hour.
When ready roll out a portion of the dough and either fill and fold for stromboli or put on your fav pizza toppings.  Bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees for around 15 minutes.
