Can altitude be causing my pizza dough to not rise? At 6,800.

I've tried different recipes, the temp. range recipes require is met and even after leaving it out all night, it does not rise.

It does sound like your yeast is the problem- have you tried proofing it (mix some with some warm water and flour and/or sugar- it should bubble and smell yeasty within a few minutes)?

Sounds like the yeast is the culprit. Make sure it's fresh (not expired.)
I store mine in the fridge until I need it, then bring it to room temp before adding it to the recipe.
