Crazy question, I know. However...
« on: August 08, 2010, 01:20:29 PM »
My son just returned from Australia and brought back some individual packets of Vegamite to show us all.  Since Vegamite is a yeast extract paste, could it possibly be used to help dough rise?  I thought about trying it, but don't want to waste a batch of dough.

The stuff tastes very unusual on it's own, so I'm not sure.  But being the pizza geek I am my immediate thought was "How can I use this in pizza?"  :-D

Anyone with an opinion?  Thanks!

'Pi' guy, yeast goes into making vegemite, but, no living yeast can be found in the finished product, so, no, vegemite will not help your dough rise.
