Dough:

Sprinkle the yeast and sugar in the lukewarm water, let sit until yeast bubbles up (approximately 5 minutes). Add 3 1/2 cups of the flour and salt. Mix the dough and knead until smooth. Add more flour, if needed. Make into a ball. Put into a bowl, cover and let dough rise and double in volume, about 45 minutes.

Pizza Sauce:

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Put aside until pizza dough is ready.

Cheese Topping:

Toss cheeses together.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Once dough is risen, cut into 2 pieces and roll out to desired sizes. Top with sauce, cheese and your favorite toppings. Bake for 20 minutes, until crust is a golden brown.
