For Pizza Base :

Combine plain flour, yeast, sugar, salt in a large bowl. Add oil & mix it well. Add warm water (IT SHOULD BE WARM NOT HOT) & make soft dough. Turn the dough out onto floured surface; knead it for 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Add extra flour as needed to keep from sticking to hands and surface.

Place the dough in a large bowl greased with oil. Cover the bowl with towel or in a big plastic bag & let it rise in warm place for about 45-50 minutes.
