Proofing the yeast
Place 1/4 cup warm water, pinch of sugar and yeast into large bowl and stir.
Allow to sit for 5 minutes. Yeast should foam up and expand to double in size.
Add Olive oil, salt, Parmesan, basil and 1 cup of flour to yeast mixture. Stir well.
Add additional cup of flour and mix (this is where you will have to get your hands in and mix, don't worry they will wash up just fine) until dough begins to leave sides of the bowl and forms a rough shaggy ball.
Turn dough out onto floured surface and knead the dough in a push pull fashion until dough is soft and pliable and no longer sticky, about 5 minutes. You made need to add additional flour to keep the dough from sticking.
Once dough is soft and pliable and no longer sticky, form into a ball.
Place in lightly oiled bowl and lightly brush dough with oil to keep the top from drying out.
Place plastic wrap tightly over the top of the bowl.
Place bowl in a warm, draft free place to allow dough to rise until double in size. Usually about 45 minutes.
Once raised double in size, punch dough down and knead again slightly to remove any air bubbles.
Allow to rest for 5 minutes and shape into desired form.
