In a medium measuring cup, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water, allowing to proof.
Meanwhile, in the bowl of a stand mixer, mix together 2 1/2 cup flour and remaining dry dough ingredients. When yeast mixture has activated and proofed, turn mixer on low and slowly add yeast mixture to the bowl. Mix until a smooth ball forms, adding additional flour as needed. Transfer dough to a large lightly greased bowl, flip dough once to coat in oil. Cover and allow to rise for one hour or doubled in size.
Preheat oven to 425°F.
In a small bowl, melt butter with minced garlic.
