Sourdough From Scratch :: pizza dough

Find the full “Sourdough From Scratch” series here and make your very own sourdough yeast starter!

If you have been following along with our Sourdough From Scratch, you are probably starting to look for some more recipes that utilize your new sourdough starter. I know I am. This recipe is super easy and since I have the recipe making one crust, you can choose to make one or ten! It’s very easy to multiply for a party even.

Or if you’re feeling really snazzy… you can build a cob oven using our tutorial, and then make your own sourdough starter, AND THEN make some sourdough pizza dough. That would really be something wouldn’t it?! Sleep on it.

Sourdough Pizza Dough
makes one large pizza crust

1 1/2 cups sourdough starter
4 -5 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups flour

Preheat oven to 500°F. Mix sourdough starter, olive oil, salt, and flour together in a mixing bowl until it blends and forms a ball. Allow the dough to rest in the bowl for about 30 minutes (it doesn’t need to rise, just rest).

Roll out the pizza dough on parchment paper or a lightly floured surface until it fits the size of your pan, turning the dough as you roll for an evenly shaped circle.

Pre-bake the crust on a pizza stone or pizza sheet for about 7 minutes and then remove from oven. Add your favorite toppings and cook until the crust is browned and the cheese is melted; about 10 minutes.

Note: Some veggies may need to be precooked before adding to the top of your pizza. Think caramelized onions, cucumbers, squash, and meats.
