Really Yeasty tasting dough, What am I doing wrong?
I've been trying to work on making homemade pizza for a long time. I'm a pretty experienced baker but not in terms of yeast based products. The main problem I have been having is that all my pizzas have an extremely yeasty taste to them. I mainly make thin crust and have tried all sorts of recipes from Peter Reinhart's recipe to Cook's illustrated and a bunch of others in between. I use only active dry yeast started first in water & sugar and then just mostly follow the receipes. I have quarry tiles in the oven and try not to cover the pizza with too many toppings.
What am I doing wrong??? FWIW, thin crust pizzas from the restaurants taste great to me, so I don't think it's my taste buds.
