Easy Thin Crust Pizza

I have been looking for a good thin crust pizza recipe for a while, after a few that weren't so hot I think we have finally found our one!!! Best part is, it's crazy easy! This is from One Sweet Appetite.

1 tbsp 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
1/2 tsp sugar
1 1/2 cups warm water
3 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
olive oil

Heat oven to 450.  Combine the water with the yeast and sugar.  Let it sit for a few minutes, until it is foamy.  In a medium bowl combine 2 1/2 cups of flour and the salt.  Once the yeast mixture is foamy pour the center of the flour and stir.  The dough will be very sticky at this point, keep kneading and at flour 1/4 cup at a time.  You want the dough to be smooth a slightly sticky but able to hold it's form.  Once you get the right texture divide it in half and roll into 2 14 inch circles.  Turn oven down to 425 and bake for 5 to 7 minutes.  Remove from oven brush the outside rim of the crust with olive oil then add toppings.  Place back in the oven for 8 minutes.  If you would like the cheese to be more melted, flip on the broiler for a few minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for several minutes before slicing.
