Dissolve the yeast in the warm water in a small bowl, this process is important to activate the fermentation activity. If the water is too cold, the yeast may take too long to activate; too hot, and it will kill the bacteria. Let stand until the mixture foams on top, about 5 minutes, then gradually pour it in the flours mixture.

Knead with your hands until well combined, about 10 minutes. The dough may result sticky and soft. We used to smash the dough onto the bowl or the table several times to get the gluten working.

Let the dough rest and rise on a lightly floured surface at least 2 hours at room temperature or in the oven. Cover the bowl with cling film or a clean cloth and the dough will double in bulk.

A bit of history
- "Pizza" Wikipedia. n.p. Web. 22 October 2003 - -
"Modern pizza evolved from similar flatbread dishes in Naples, Italy in the 18th or early 19th century. Prior to that time, flatbread was often topped with ingredients such as garlic, salt, lard, cheese, and basil. It is uncertain when tomatoes were first added and there are many conflicting claims. Until about 1830, pizza was sold from open-air stands and out of pizza bakeries, and pizzerias keep this old tradition alive today. A popular contemporary legend holds that the archetypal pizza, pizza Margherita, was invented in 1889, when the Royal Palace of Capodimonte commissioned the Neapolitan pizzaiolo (pizza maker) Raffaele Esposito to create a pizza in honor of the visiting Queen Margherita. Of the three different pizzas he created, the Queen strongly preferred a pizza swathed in the colors of the Italian flag: red (tomato), green (basil), and white (mozzarella). Supposedly, this kind of pizza was then named after the Queen as "Pizza Margherita", although recent research casts doubt on this legend."
