    In large bowl, stir yeast, sugar and 1/4 cup of the water until blended. Let stand 10 minutes or until yeast is dissolved and foamy. Add remaining 2/3 cup water, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 teaspoon salt and 1 tablespoon oregano. Stir in 2 1/2 cups of the flour, slowly adding additional flour as necessary to make dough easy to handle.

Cover bowl loosely with plastic wrap sprayed with cooking spray; let rise in warm place 45 minutes to 1 hour or until doubled in size. Dough is ready if indentation remains when touched.
