I love the tangy flavour sourdough adds, so why not use it with pizza crust?
Some people make dough from sourdough out of frugality, but for me it is really for the taste and the cost savings is an added bonus.
Add 1 cup sourdough starter, 1/2 cup water, and 1/2 cup flour. Mix well and let sit overnight.
This extra time gives the dough time to develop and adds oh-so-much more flavour!
The next day, add 1 teaspoon salt, 1 tablespoon dried oregano (or fresh, if you have it!), 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes, and 1 teaspoon garlic.
Add enough flour so the dough does not stick to the side of the bowl, about 1 1/2 cups.
Divide into 3 equal sized balls.
Roll out on a clean surface sprinkled with cornmeal. The cornmeal gives it a nice crunch and is the “secrete ingredient” a lot of restaurants use.
Place on pizza stones and add your toppings.
The beauty of pizza is the fact that you can add whatever you want for toppings! My family always made a fun night of everyone making their own pizza so they got exactly what each individual wanted.
If you think pineapple belongs on pizza, GO FOR IT!
If you hate onions, DITCH THEM!
The world is so full of possibilities.
