  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. Mix well.
  2. Add the warm water and olive oil to the bowl, and mix until a dough forms.
  3. Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 5-7 minutes, until it becomes smooth and elastic.
  4. Place the dough back in the mixing bowl and cover with a damp cloth. Let it rest for about 30 minutes to an hour, until it has doubled in size.
  5. Preheat your oven to 450°F (230°C).
  6. Once the dough has risen, punch it down and roll it out onto a greased baking sheet or pizza stone.
  7. Spread the tomato sauce evenly over the pizza dough.
  8. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese on top of the tomato sauce.
  9. Add any toppings you like, arranging them evenly over the cheese.
  10. Bake the pizza in the preheated oven for about 12-15 minutes, until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  11. Remove the pizza from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.

Enjoy your homemade pizza!
