  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp yeast
  • 2 TBSP olive oil
  • ¼ cup sourdough starter
  • 3/4 cup lukewarm water


  • Either the night before or on the morning of the evening when you want to bake your sourdough pizza, start making the dough.
  • In a medium sized bowl or the bowl of your stand mixer, combine flour, salt, and instant or dry yeast. Stir the dry ingredient to combine.
  • To this bowl add olive oil, sourdough starter, and warm water. I like to add ½ cup of water first and add the remaining ¼ cup later, if needed. You want this dough to be on the slightly sticky side but not so much that it sticks to your hands.
  • Either with your hands on a work surface or with the dough hook attachment of your stand mixer, knead the dough for 5-10 minutes.
  • Form the dough into a ball and place it in a non-reactive bowl. Lightly cover the bowl with a beeswax wrap or other lid.
  • Let the dough rest in a cool kitchen on the counter or otherwise in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours. For best results, let the dough rest for 8-24 hours in the refrigerator.
  • Remove the dough from the bowl and transfer it to a lightly floured work surface.
  • Cut it in half for two 15" pizza crusts or in 3 equal portions for 3 12" pizza crusts.
  • With a rolling pin, roll the pizza dough out into disks.
  • I like to brush some olive oil onto the pizza dough with a pastry brush. This helps your pizza not getting soggy when adding toppings. It also give the pizza crust a nice crunch if you're baking it blind.
  • You can bake this crust blind or add your favorite toppings.
  • Bake at 450˚-500˚F or under the broiler until the cheese is bubbly and golden-brown.
