Sourdough Pizza Dough


  • 1 1/2 cups prepared sourdough starter, allow to come to room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Sauce and toppings*


  1. In a large bowl, place sourdough starter. Add 3/4 cup flour, oil and salt.
  2. Knead dough until smooth and elastic. Add more flour as needed, if dough is too sticky.
  3. Using greased hands, shape dough into a ball. Transfer dough to an oiled bowl; turn dough to coat with oil. Cover with plastic wrap. Dough may be prepared to this point and refrigerated.
  4. If refrigerated, let dough warm up on the counter before proceeding, about 2 hours. If fresh, let stand for 30 minutes before rolling out.
  5. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  6. On a large greased pizza pan, press and stretch the dough to fit. Spread pizza sauce evenly over dough. Top with toppings. Sprinkle with cheese.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted, pizza is heated through and crust is golden brown. Slice and serve.
