Stir yeast into the warm water to dissolve, let bloom for five minutes.
Sift together flour and salt.
Stir olive oil, honey, cool water, and yeast mixture together and add to the flour mixture.
Knead with dough hook in stand mixer for 5 minutes or 10-12 minutes by hand.
Place dough in a lightly greased bowl and cover. Allow to rise in a warm, draftless place for 30 minutes.
Take dough out and form gently into a ball.
Cut into 4 portions.
The dough can be wrapped in plastic wrap and refridgerated for up to 2 days.*
On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough into very thin rounds, and top as desired. Bake at 400F until crisp and golden brown, anywhere from 10-20 minutes, depending on the thickness of the crust.

*I read that you can keep pizza dough in the freezer once it’s risen. I wouldn’t recommend it with this. It becomes pretty unworkable.
