In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water with sugar. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
In a large bowl, combine flour, olive oil, salt, and the yeast mixture; stir well to combine. Beat well until a stiff dough has formed. Cover and let rise until doubled in volume, about 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 175 degrees C/350 degrees F.
Turn dough out onto a well floured surface. Form dough into a round and roll out into a pizza base shape. Cover with your favourite sauce and toppings and bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 20 minutes.
