    You used to be able to ask for free yeast from the instore bakery in any supermarkets, I am not sure if this is the case now though, can anyone confirm this?

    Wow! I bake all my own bread, but never knew about this. So do you just go to the bakery and say "may I have some yeast please?" ???

    I believe it's true of Tesco and it is certainly true of my local Asda because I've got some sitting in my fridge even as we speak :)

  • local supermarket (although average market is probably a better description) sells fresh yeast on the provisions counter,works out at a bout 5pence to make a batch of dough (and the bread flour from lidl is fantastic, rises every time and if you let it rise for a fair while longer than recommended makes fantastically flavoured bread)

  • Try potatoes!! If you have some spare potatoes (leftover mash is great) mix in some fresh or dried herbs - rosemary, thyme oregano or whatever you like, smooth out into any flat shape you like and top with your favourite topping, drizzle on some olive oil and bake in the oven on 180c for 10 minutes.

    Its not the same as a traditional pizza but a great alternative.

    I feel hungry....off to the fridge me thinks

    I do my tater mash (or small cubes) base with cheese in it. Helps to bind it - especially if it's done in the frying pan.

  • arkonite babe's pizza base was great, i made it last night and it was tasty and fluffy! :-) thankyou!
  • As title says, tomorrow I've decided to make a homemade pizza but I can be bothered with the whole yeast thing.
    I have the following in.....
    Plain flour
    Self raising flower
    Baking powder
    Bread flour

    Can I use any of these to make a frying pan sized pizza that's not a thin crust as I want something that has a little depth to it and crunchy crust. Or am I just dreaming and have to use yeast, which I do have in but can't be asred to wait for it to rise.
