How To Make 1-Ingredient Sourdough Pizza Crust

  1. Spread 2 cups of sourdough starter/discard on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  2. Spread out evenly in a thin layer, about 1/4 inch thick. You can definitely make it thicker, just adjust the baking time.
  3. Place in a 425 degree oven for 10-12 minutes.
  4. While it is baking, it may bubble. Simply take a fork and jab it one time so it will deflate.
  5. Pull pizza crust out of the oven, add your sauce and toppings, then place back in the oven for another 10 minutes.

The Best Pizza Sauce Recipe

Pizza sauce can dramatically change the flavor of your pizza. I highly recommend making my simple pizza sauce recipe. It’s absolutely delicious and worth the added effort.

Sourdough starter pizza crust will crisp up nicely as long as you bake it long enough. If you find that your crust is wimpy, then put it back in the oven to crisp up. We make sourdough pizzas every Friday night at my parent’s house. We make 6-7 pizzas at a time and have 2 ovens going to get the job done!

How To Bulk Sourdough Starter To Make Pizzas

In order to make multiple sourdough starter pizzas, you must have a lot of sourdough starter. I start the process a few days before we decide to make pizza.

  1. 3 days before making pizzas, feed your sourdough starter 200-300g of water and flour.
  2. 2 days before making pizzas, feed your sourdough starter 300g of water and flour.
  3. 1 day before making pizzas, feed your sourdough starter 500g of water and flour.

This method always gives me enough sourdough starter to make 5-6 pizzas. I do have 2 sourdough starters that I bulk at the same time, because the next morning we enjoy sourdough pancakes (recipe coming soon).

Always leave about 1 cup of sourdough starter to continue feeding. If you use all of your sourdough starter, then you will have to start all over making a sourdough starter.
