Please Explain Yeast.....

Phoebe | Aug 21, 2012 08:55 AM

Without getting too scientific...please explain the differences of the many types of yeast out there used in baking. (Instant vs Active vs Quick-rise). I'm actually looking for what would be the best type to use in a pizza dough? Does it even matter? Do the different types actually change the flavor of the "end" product you're baking? Does it just come down to personal preference? Help.......Thanks!
