In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast and brown sugar in the warm water, and let sit for 10 minutes.
Stir the salt and oil into the yeast mixture. Mix in half of the flour.
Turn dough out onto a clean, well floured surface, and knead in more flour until the dough is no longer sticky. Place the dough into a well oiled bowl and cover with a damp cloth. Let the dough rise until doubled; this should take about 1 hour. Punch down the dough and form a tight ball. Allow the dough to relax for a minute before rolling out.
Preheat oven to 220 C. If you are baking the dough on a pizza stone, you may place your toppings on the dough and bake immediately. If you are baking your pizza in a tray, lightly oil the pan, and let the dough rise for 15 or 20 minutes before topping and baking it.
Bake pizza in preheated oven, until the cheese and crust are golden brown, about 15 to 20 minutes.
