Salt Free Pizza

1/2 package (1 1/4 teaspoon) dry yeast
1 cup warm water
1 tablespoon oil
1 tablespoon sugar
2 cups flour
3 oz no-salt tomato paste
1/2 cup water
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon oil
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1/2 lb cooked ground beef, well drained
6 oz mozzarella cheese, shredded

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in 1 tablespoon oil, 1 tablespoon sugar and enough flour to make a soft dough. Stir 20 strokes. Place in a greased bowl, turn to moisten all surfaces, cover and let set in warm area.
