Method
Heat oven to 500 degrees with pizza stone in oven. Let stone heat up a bit.

Mix yeast, sugar and water.  Let stand 5 minutes to proof.
Add salt, flour and mix well. Let Rise.

Roll out dough into a very thin circle
dust with flower on both sides of dough so it doesn't stick
brush some oil on top of dough
add crushed garlic
add some sauce, to taste
cover with mozzarella cheese
sprinkle on some oregano and pepper flakes

Carefully place pizza on stone in oven, easier to do using a pizza peel

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Keep an eye on the pie as cooking times & temperatures vary.
And it may take a few tries to get the ratio of cheese to sauce to your liking.

Mangia!
