Flatbreads have the same broad appeal as pizza but are ideal for dolling up with sophisticated flavors. Here, a tasty homemade dough gets topped with caramelized onions, sweet squash, zesty sausage and creamy goat cheese for an appetizer that’s definitely not every day.
Yeast has been used by bakers for thousands of years. It comes in active dry variety, and also so-called “instant” yeast. They often can be used interchangeably, though active dry least may be a bit slower to rise. If you are someone who enjoys baking at home, then you should always try to have some active dry yeast on hand. You can use it to make a wide variety of breads, including highly-sweetened ones, baguettes, ryes, whites, whole-wheat, or soda bread. When you’re shopping for the best active dry yeast to keep handy in your pantry, you may want to buy in bulk if you’re a consummate baker, or you may only want to have a couple of individual packages around at a time. You might also have an allegiance to a particular brand.
