In large mixing bowl combine 1/8 cup water and 1 teaspoon sugar stir and set aside for 3-5 minutes until the mixture starts to bubble.
After the mixture has began to bubble pour remaining 1 cup of water, oil, and flour. Mix until a dough texture forms. Knead for at least 3-5 minutes until the dough is soft in elastic in texture. rub the dough with oil and cover for 30 minutes to rise.
While the dough is rise start working on the toppings and ranch sauce. Pour 1 tablespoon butter or olive oil onto a heated pan, pour onions, peppers, and jalapenos. Saute on medium heat for 5 minutes until the veggies begin to caramelize. Pour broccoli and stir in for 30 seconds. Set aside.
In a small bowl, stir together all ingredients for the ranch dressing except for the buttermilk. Stir in buttermilk, 1 tablespoon at a time, as needed to thin out the ranch if desired.
After the dough has risen heat oven to 500˚, punch down dough and cover for 10 minutes while oven heats.
Roll pizza on our on a surface covered with flour or cornmeal ( or a mixture of both, that's what I do). Place pizza on pizza stone or pan.
Spread sauce on pizza. Sprinkle the cheese and veggies evenly over pizza.
Bake on low rack for 12-6 minutes until the edges are golden.
While pizza is warm drizzle ranch sauce as desired.
