Pizza Specific Yeast
« on: October 06, 2009, 05:44:13 AM »
A search turned up nothing on this so I'll ask:

What about pizza-specific yeast?!

PizzaCrustYeast dot com

Also Saf-Pizza brand, out of Europe.

Neither can be ordered online. One store in NYC *might* carry the first one.

They claim dough will rise as fast as can be and also be more durable than usual due to added enzymes.

I'd love to combine such "no rise" yeast with King Arthur dough flavor to obtain in a few minutes what usually requires waiting overnight for!

The Fleischmann's Pizza Yeast appears to be their standard RapidRise yeast with some dough relaxers.

Q: If I can't find Pizza Crust Yeast at a store near me, how can I make the pizza recipes?
A: It's still easy. Simply substitute RapidRise Yeast for Pizza Crust Yeast and allow about 10 minutes for the dough to rest before shaping.

I've been using the Saf-Pizza brand for a while now which they claim prevents the ovaling of the skin when opening the dough. I find it as a false claim and there is no benefit over using regular ADY which I happen to also use.
