Quick & Easy Sourdough Pizza

Chewy thin-crust pizzas are popular here in Portland,OR and I’ve been searching a long time for a recipe that would replicate restaurant crusts. I have tried multiple recipes using bread flour, kneading for 15+ minutes, and even adding extra gluten, but what I usually end up with is pizza topping on something soft and pretty much like bread. Recently my friend, Sybil, shared this easy sourdough pizza crust recipe and I thought I’d give it a try since I love my sourdough starter and it comes together so quickly. Surprise! This is my best crust yet! It has a delicious flavor and is nice and chewy. I recommend serving this with my Quick & Easy Pizza Sauce.

Yummy pizza from scratch in 30 minutes!

Sourdough Pizza Crust

Makes one 12-inch pizza crust

1½c. sourdough starter
1½c. bread flour
1t. salt
1T. olive oil

Preheat oven to 500°. Mix ingredients together, roll to size, and place on pizza pan. Let dough rest for 10 minutes. Bake on lower-middle rack for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and add toppings. Bake for another 10 minutes until done.

Recipe Adjustments: I’ve shared the recipe just as it was given to me, but have made a couple of small changes myself. First, the crust had a little too much salt for me so I prefer about ¾t. Second, I’ve found that convection heat works best for an evenly browned and crisp pizza, so I used the “Convection Bake” setting at 450°.

    Where can I get some sourdough starter? Does your starter have milk in it?

    I’ve always been disappointed with my many attempts at pizza crust using standard yeasted recipes so am looking forward to using my sourdough starter to make this. So amazingly quick too! Thanks Sarah.
