In large bowl, dissolve
yeast and sugar in water; let stand for 5 minutes. Add oil and salt. Stir in
flour, a cup at a time, until a soft dough forms. Turn onto floured surface; knead until smooth
and elastic, about 2-3 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease
the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes. Punch down dough; divide in half. Press each
into a greased 12-in. pizza pan. Combine the tomato sauce, oregano and basil;
spread over each crust. Top with pepperoni (or preferred toppings) and cheese. Bake at 400° for 25-30 minutes or until crust
is lightly browned.
