Scale

Ingredients

  • 11/4 to 1-3/4 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 11/2 cups of fresh sourdough starter
  • 4 to 5 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of salt

Instructions

  1. Take the fresh sourdough starter in a large bowl. Add one tablespoon of olive oil, salt, and all-purpose flour. Add the flour in smaller quantities and keep mixing continuously to form a soft dough.
  2. Place the dough in a bowl and close the lid. Allow it to rest for 20 to 30 minutes.
  3. Roll the dough gently to form a flat and circular base. You can also divide the dough into 2 or more smaller balls if you want a smaller-sized pizza.
  4. Sprinkle flour on the dough and the work area to prevent it from sticking.
  5. Preheat the oven to 450 or 500°F.
  6. Place the dough on a baking sheet and bake it for 7 to 10 minutes depending on the thickness of the crust.
  7. Remove the pizza crust from the oven. Brush the remaining oil on the crust so that the toppings do not get soaked into the crust making it soggy.
  8. Add the toppings of your choice except for the cheese and place the crust back into the oven. Continue baking it until the crust turns light brown in color.
  9. Remove from the oven and add grated cheese. Place it back into the oven and bake for 2 to 3 minutes until the cheese melts.
  10. Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
