Yeast Definition

What Does Yeast Means?

Yeast is a living microscopic, single-cell organism that as it feeds, converts sugars and starches into alcohol and carbon dioxide. This trapped carbon dioxide gas is what causes doughs to rise, or leaven.

For pizza making, you may use active dry yeast, instant yeast, or fresh yeast.
