i used this the other day, very versitile, you can make it for pizza bases, focaccias, and regular bread:

375ml (1 1/2 cups) warm water
2 tsp (7g/1 sachet) dried yeast
Pinch of caster sugar
600g (4 cups) plain flour
1 tsp salt
60ml (1/4 cup) olive oil, plus extra for brushing

1.Combine the water, yeast and sugar in a small bowl. Set aside for 5 minutes or until foamy.

2.Combine the flour and salt in a large bowl and make a well in the centre. Add the yeast mixture and oil. Use a round-bladed knife in a cutting motion to mix until the mixture is combined. Use your hands to bring the dough together in the bowl.

3.Brush a bowl lightly with oil. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 minutes or until smooth and elastic.

4.Place in the prepared bowl and turn to coat in oil. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm, draught-free place to rise for 30 minutes or until dough doubles in size.

5. Punch down and re knead for a minut, make whatever chape bread you want place n greased tin and bake around 180 degrees, for around 30min. till golden brown on top.

6. bread is ready when you can tap the top and it sounds hollow!

Hope this helps!

3.5#s of BF
.5 oz yeast
2oz honey
2#s of water.
pinch of salt

I'm going to assume you know how to make bread, and know when it is kneaded enough. This recipe has never failed, if you knead it.
