you need:

5 cups of flour

a handful of sugar

a packet of yeast

a bit of salt (teaspoon)

one cup of HOT water

you mix:

yeast and sugar in the water-- fully dissolve the yeast and sugar

dump that into a big bowl, stir in the five cups of flour.  add the flour slowly. also, you may need a little extra hot water.

you knead:

the stuff from the bowl on a lightly floured cutting board until it stops sticking to you-- this usually takes about fifteen minutes.  Mix it until it is like play-doh; then let it rise for an hour.

you stretch:

the dough into a big circle.  do this gradually, so you don't tear holes in it.

you cook it for 15 minutes at 450 degrees, then

you add:

sauce, cheese, and whatever toppings you prefer.  cook it until the cheese bubbles, or beyond if you like burned food
