So, what is lievito?

Lievito, also known as Italian yeast, is a staple ingredient in many Italian recipes, particularly for baking. It is a type of leavening agent that helps dough rise and become light and fluffy. Lievito is made from a mixture of yeast and wheat starch, and it is typically sold in small packets or jars. This versatile ingredient can be used in a variety of recipes, from traditional bread and pizza dough to sweet cakes and pastries. Its distinct flavor and aroma are an essential part of Italian cuisine, and it is a must-have for any baker or cook who wants to create authentic Italian dishes.
