Friday’s in our house are pretty much reserved for pizza night. Occasionally I have forgotten to make the dough the day before and used plain old started spread out on a hot skillet for our pizza crust. But the preferred pizza crust is this one. It takes a little prep work but the result is a much better, chewier and tastier pizza. It is always a win, when I take the starter out on a Thursday. This is my go to pizza dough that is not only delicous but a healthier way to have your pizza.

What You’ll Need To Make a Sourdough Pizza Dough:

3/4 cup of filtered water

2 cups bread flour

Benefits Of Sourdough

Of course we love the taste but Sourdough is actually a healthier alternative to eating regular breads such as white or wheat loaves. The lower phytate levels in sourdough bread makes for an easier to digest bread and results in a better more nutritious bread.

It is a good alternative for those who are sensitive to gluten as the sourdough is a fermented food that has a bacteria to yeast composition that works on breaking down the startches found in the grain before it’s even eaten. Sourdough is also known as a prebiotic food that simply put, will help keep your gut bacteria healthy.

Baking Tips:

*If you do not have a stand mixer you can knead dough by hand for approximately 8 minutes

FAQ for Sourdough Pizza Dough

Can I use all purpose flour in place of the bread flour?

You can and you likely won’t notice a big difference in the taste. The use of bread flour is for the higher protein and gluten content that allows for a better rising and stretching dough.

Can I use this dough for calzones?

Yes, this dough works fine for calzones. One thing I like to do is brush the calzones with olive oil before baking to help them brown.
