Sourdough Pizza Crust

April 13, 2020

I’ve been experimenting recently with sourdough as you all may have noticed. I had some discard yesterday and came up with this pizza crust. It is epic.

I might alter it the next time i make it, but for now these are the measurements i used. I’m still a newbie sourdougher so bare with me.

UPDATE: I made this dough with 100g active sourdough starter and skipped the yeast. Worked perfectly.

  • Do not roll the dough, gently pull it with your hands onto a pizza pan or whatever pan you’re using and let it rest for another 5 min
  • Add the sauce and whatever topping you want. Bake for 10 mins in a preheated oven (the maximum your oven gets, mine goes up to 270C)
  • Remove it, add your cheese and bake for another 7-10 mins

    I would like to know if i can use the old discards that didn’t complete the 14 days.
    I’m making my own starter so i don’t have a ready one.
    Thank you
