1 pkg yeast
1 1/2 cup lukewarm water

This is an easy way to make a home-baked pizza in a short time.
Dissolve the yeast in the lukewarm water with the vegan sugar and let stand for 5 minutes.
Mix in the oil, salt, and 1 cup of flour.
Add the rest of the flour a cup at a time until it becomes too hard to stir with a wooden spoon.
Turn out onto a floured counter and knead for 8-10 minutes, until it's smooth and elastic.
Have your oven preheating at 375 while you're kneading the dough (I have my pizza stone in the oven warming up).
Let the dough rest for a few minutes while preparing the green peppers, olives, mushrooms, onions, etc.
When you have all the ingredients ready, roll the dough out into a large circle and place on the stone or baking sheet--sprinkle cornmeal on it first--and spread the tomato sauce evenly over the dough.
I then add my seasonings (I even like a touch of lemon pepper).
Follow this with the olives, mushrooms, and onions, green peppers and whatever else you like.
Top with the soy cheese.
On the baking stone, it usually takes only about 15 minutes or bake until the cheese browns slightly.
I usually make two smaller pies instead of one large one.
