To a measuring cup or medium bowl, add the warm water, yeast, egg, oil, and sugar. Stir and allow to sit for 10 minutes until the yeast is activated.
Transfer the yeast mixture to a large mixing bowl. Add 3 cups of the flour and stir well.
Add the salt and additional flour in small amounts and mix until a soft ball is formed and it pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Do not add too much flour or you will have a dry dough.
Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and knead for 10-15 minutes until the dough is smooth and elastic. When pressed with your finger it should spring back.
Add 1-2 teaspoons of oil to your mixing bowl. Place the dough in the bowl turning over once to coat the dough. Cover with a kitchen towel and let it rise until double in size.
When the dough has doubled in size, place it on a lightly floured surface and roll out until it is about 1/2 inch thick. You can roll it in either a circle or a rectangle.
