When using active dry yeast for pizza crust recipes, you always want to make sure that the yeast is still viable. Start by following the package directions, which usually include dissolving some sugar in some lukewarm water. After adding the yeast to the mix, allow to sit for about 10 minutes, you will know if the yeast is still good if the yeast bubbles up. If no reaction occurs, your yeast is not active, and the bread or rolls will not rise, so you want to get some fresh yeast.
