    Oh man! I am so glad I clicked on this video! The enthusiasm! It got my kids wanting to help me. I was never taught how to cook, but my grandma, and dad could cook. I have been teaching myself since I was 19 (37 now). I am now just getting into making breads. My son adores Pizza so I thought I'd try. The first dough I made was a lot drier then yours, not sure why. I can't figure out which yeast I should be using. Dry Active yeast or the Fast Acting Yeast? It seems to take forever and never really getting that stretchy-ness to the dough. 🙁 not sure what to do?

    Every time I make pizza dough it comes out wrong. When I'm trying to knead it it tears rather than stretches. It gets a little better once I've let it proof for a few hours, but it still doesn't have the right consistency. The finished, baked pizza crust ends up being tough, bland and not very pizza-crust-like. What am I doing wrong? Am I using the wrong flour (all purpose)?

  7. I love his spirit! Tasty looking pizza also
