Pizza Protips: Yeast

Yeast is such a common thing that we don't give much thought to how amazing it is, and what a boon it is to bakers, brewers, and winemakers. And yeast is such a fun guy. Or, more accurately, a fungi.

In the Serious Eats Talk section today, reader Hobsons96 asks for pizza dough help. Basically s/he can't get the dough to stretch properly. This problem reminded me of the Alton Brown episode on pizza, "Flat Is Beautiful," in which Brown explains gluten, "windowpaning," and yeast action—among other nerdriffic dough concepts. And then I remembered that there are a number of Good Eats! segments on YouTube, including the two after the jump that might give Hobsons96 some more help.... More
