Sourdough Pizza Crust

READY IN: 42mins


  • 1 12
    cups sourdough starter
  • 4 -5
    tablespoons olive oil
  • 1
    teaspoon salt
  • 1 12
    cups flour (plus a little more or less to adjust consistency)


  • Preheat oven to 500°F.
  • Mix starter, 1 tbsp olive oil, salt, and flour together in a mixing bowl until it blends and forms a ball (add more or less flour to adjust consistency; if you get it too dry just add a little more starter).
  • Allow dough to rest for about 30 minutes (don't look for it to rise, just to get the dough where it is easier to roll).
  • Roll out mixture on parchment paper or a lightly floured surface until it fits the size of your pan, turning the dough as you roll (if you want a more even circle).
  • Par-bake the crust on a pizza stone or pizza sheet for about 7 minutes, then remove from oven.
  • Before topping your pizza with any sauce, cheese, or toppings, brush the top of the crust all over with remaining olive oil (as needed), using a pastry brush (this helps keep soggy moisture out of the crust as it bakes).
  • Top as desired and cook until browned and cheese is melted.
  • If you use certain vegetables as a topping (onions are the first thing that comes to mind) you might want to cook those about halfway before topping the pizza with them (or they will be too crunchy).
