Combine water, yeast and 1 ½ cups of flour into a large bowl and mix well. Add the oil, salt, and gradually add the remaining flour to the bowl.
With your hands, work the ingredients together until the dough holds its shape in a tight ball. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and kneed for five minutes or until smooth and elastic. If the dough feels sticky add more flour.
Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled bowl and cover with a towel in a warm environment and allow to double in size (roughly 1 hour). Once risen, divide the dough into individual pizzas and place on a floured surface. Roll the dough into balls, cover each with a towel, and let sit for 20 minutes.
Shape dough on a pizza stone covered with cornmeal. Add desired toppings and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until browned.
