In a food processor, pulse the flour, sugar, and instant yeast to combine. With machine running, drizzle in the warm water until incorporated. Add 1 tbsp oil and salt. Pulse until dough forms a ball.
Brush inside of a large bowl with ½ tbsp oil. Transfer dough to bowl and drizzle with 1 tbsp oil. Knead in bowl 1 min. Shape dough into ball and brush surface with remaining ½ tbsp oil. Cover tightly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 1 day or up to 3 days.
Remove dough from refrigerator 1 hour before ready to use. Divide dough into 8 smaller balls. On a lightly floured surface, stretch and roll each dough ball into a 6½-inch circle before topping as desired.
