Multi purpose dough
2 packets (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup olive oil, plus more for bowl and brushing
2 teaspoons coarse salt
4 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled), plus more for work surface
1) Pour 1 1/2 cups warm water into a large bowl; sprinkle with yeast and let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes.
2) Whisk sugar, oil, and salt into yeast mixture.
Add flour and stir until a sticky dough forms.
3) Transfer dough to an oiled bowl and brush top with oil.
Cover bowl with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm, draft-free place until
dough has doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
4) Turn out onto a lightly floured work surface and gently knead 1 or 2 times before using.
