Pizza/Calzone Dough

1 package active dry yeast
1 cup lukewarm water
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons light vegetable oil (I use olive)
1 teaspoon salt
3 to 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

Dissolve yeast and warm water in large mixing bowl. Stir in the sugar, oil, salt, and 1 cup of the flour. Beat until smooth. Mix enough of the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, to make the dough easy to handle.

Turn out onto floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic. Place in glass or metal bowl, sprayed with vegetable oil cooking spray, turn over so greased side is up. Cover and let rise until almost double in size, about 30 - 45 minutes.

As pizza, cook at 400 degrees, about 30 minutes.
