Sourdough Starter Pizza Dough

Sourdough Starter Pizza Dough


  • 407 g Flour
  • 240 g Water
  • 15 g Salt
  • 20 g Olive Oil
  • 250 g Sourdough Starter


  • Mix all ingredients in a bowl until it resembles a shaggy consistency and let rest for 1 hr.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until you have a smooth dough, (dust with flour as needed), and let rest in a lightly oiled bowl for 1 hr.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and cut the dough into 300 g portions (you should get 3 doughs total).
  • Fold each portion into itself, then cup the dough and roll on the counter until it comes together into a tight ball.
  • Place each dough in a bowl that has been lightly oiled, cover with saran wrap and let sit for 2 hrs.
  • After the 2 hr. rest period, place the dough in the fridge overnight.
  • The dough can be used up to 3 days after being made.
  • Remove the dough at least 30 mins before using.


Stretching the Dough
 let the dough sit out at room temperature for about 30 minutes or so until it is warm enough to work with easily.   Make sure you have enough flour on the surface that the dough does not stick to the surface or the peel that you use to transfer the dough from the counter to the oven.   Stretch the dough out into a shape of your choice.  Be it round for pizzas or square for tray pizzas…   giggle for various methods.
Dressing the Pizza Dough
The Pizza dough is a blank canvas and you can dress it any way to like.  One of the ways we like to dress our pizza is:
¼ cup canned tomatoes (simply lightly pureed with a touch of salt – usually 10 g salt for 50 oz can of tomato)
¼ cup of shredded mozzarella (any firm mozzarella works) 
2 tbsp of grated parmigiana cheese
assorted toppings
70 – 80 g of fresh mozzarella (any fresh mozzarella that you can find works, we use Quality Cheese brand of fresh mozzarella
1 tbsp olive oil
Cooking the Pizza:
Having a pizza stone is the best way to cook the pizza in a home oven. 
A large cast iron pan turn upside down would work too.
Or a sheet pan turn upside down would work too.
Pre-heat the oven to 550 F with the pizza stone in it.
Dress your pizza once the oven is to temp. If you dress your pizza and have to wait for the oven, there is a good chance that the dough will stick and be harder to pick up and put in the oven.
Cook the pizza for 5 – 7 mins (it will depend on your oven and how hot it gets) Until the crust is a nice golden and has slight blistering.
Remove from the oven and place on a cutting surface, and cut into 4 or 8 slices.
