Begin by proofing the yeast. Add yeast, brown sugar, and water to a medium size mixing bowl or stand mixer.Allow to stand 10 minutes or until yeast is producing small bubbles in the water.
Add salt, olive oil, and flour. Knead by hand, or use a dough hook attachment on medium-low speed, until dough is slightly elastic and no longer sticky.
Rub a medium bowl with a drizzle of olive oil to coat. Place pizza dough in the bowl, cover, and allow to rise for 1 hour, or until doubled in size.
Place pizza stone in oven and preheat to 425°.
Remove cover and punch down dough. Form dough into a tight ball and allow it to rest 5 minutes.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough into desired shape.
Place on preheated pizza stone. Add your toppings and bake 15-20 minutes. Enjoy!
