Food Find: Pizza Crust Yeast

Came across Fleischmanns Pizza Crust Yeast in the traditional 3 pack a couple weeks ago in the baking aisle. So what is the difference between it and regular baking yeast? It is an easy and fast way to make homemade dough – mix the dough up and a 4 minute kneading session and you are ready to top and bake. No rising, no punching down. Just one easy kneading session! This makes it extremely easy. So easy I cannot see myself using my bread machine again to make pizza dough with traditional yeast!

And it makes a very delicious crust. We went with a double batch (2 packets worth) and followed the recipe on the back. After mixing up and kneading the dough I weighed it on my digital kitchen scale and split it into 2. While in theory the packaging says you can get 2 thin crust pizzas per packet, we prefer a normal crust – and by no means are they thick crust! It produces a nice light dough with a mild flavor.

There is a considerable list of major grocery store chains carrying it (I found it at our local Fred Meyer’s which is owned by Kroger) or you can get it online at Amazon: Fleischmann’s Yeast Pizza.

Next time I will take photos of the pizza made. The short days and a hot pizza don’t equal photography!

  1. So funny! We just discovered this as well. My husband loves making homemade pizzas and this crust was really good compared to the store bought kind.
