To make the dough: combine water (I just turn my faucet on hot and let it run for 30 seconds or until it's warm to touch, you could also microwave your water to get it warm), yeast, honey, and olive oil in a large bowl. Stir once or twice, then let sit for 10 minute, or until foamy on top.
Add in 2 cups of the flour and salt, mix with a spoon (you don't need a stand mixer for this). Mix until the dough comes together, it will be sticky when touched.
Turn the dough onto a very floured surface, add remaining 1/2 cup flour and using your hands knead the dough to incorporate the remaining flour.
Grease the bowl with 1/2 teaspoon olive oil, then place the dough back into the bowl and turn it once so that it is lightly coated in the oil. Put a kitchen towel on top of the bowl (or cover with plastic wrap) and let rise for 1 hour.
After an hour, turn the dough onto the floured surface and punch it down.
Preheat oven to 425. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Stretch dough (using your hands or with a rolling pin) and then place the dough onto the baking sheet and stretch it to fill the baking sheet. Cover the dough with the kitchen towel (or plastic wrap) and let sit for 10 minutes.
