Combine 3 1/2 cups of the flour, sugar, yeast and salt in the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with a dough hook. Start the mixer on a low speed to combine the ingredients. While the mixer is running slowly add the water and the olive oil and beat until the dough is sticky and coming together as a ball. If too wet, add more flour one tablespoon at a time. If the dough is too dry add more water a tablespoon at a time. Mix the dough until it comes together as a solid ball.
