Dissolve the sugar in the warm water in a large bowl.
Sprinkle the yeast over the water, and let stand for 5 minutes until the yeast softens and begins to form a creamy foam.
Add the oil, salt, and 2 cups of flour, and kneed the mixture until forms a wet dough.
Then add the remaining 1 cup of flour, ¼ cup at a time, and knead until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl into a ball.
Knead for 3 to 5 more minutes, until the dough is smooth and elastic.
Lightly oil a large bowl, then place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil.

Preheat oven to 375℉ (190℃) F (190 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or cooking spray.
Punch down the dough, and roll it out into a long, flat strip about 9 inches wide by 30 inches long.
Spoon the filling mixture down the center of the dough strip, leaving about 1 inch on all sides for sealing.
