yeast

How come I can't get my yeast to proof. I make sure the water is the right temp. the yeast is not old and I add the sugar when it is suppose to go in. All I want to do is make some pizza dough.

How are you storing the yeast? To high of temps can kill it. How long are you waiting for it to proof? If you have weaker yeast it can take them a while to wake up and get going.

You may just have a dud batch of yeast. It happens. Check the date on the package, or start with a new package. If your water temp is fine, (I use slightly warmer than body temperature water) you should be golden. Otherwise, I have no idea why yeast wouldn't proof for you.
