Pizza is a fun thing to eat! Most pizza isn’t all that healthy, though.

The good new is, it’s really easy to do a few tweaks, and make a homemade pizza that doesn’t compromise on health, AND tastes just as good as (or better than!) junk food pizza options. Seriously, this sourdough pizza crust might taste better than any other you’ve ever had!

This fluffy sourdough pizza crust turns out as delicious and chewy as any pizza crust you’ve had. You can even make it as a cold fermented sourdough pizza dough. It’s also easy to customize the flour, and make a rye sourdough pizza crust.

And for this pizza dough, no yeast is needed! Real sourdough provides all the rising action for a fluffy, chewy pizza crust. Are you hungry yet?

Tips for a delicious sourdough pizza crust

Here are some things to keep in mind that will help your sourdough pizza crust turn out well:

  • Choosing flour – Use flour that works well for making bread. My sourdough starter is a rye starter, but I can use it to make sourdough baked goods with whatever flour I want. For pizza crust, I like using a combination of hard white wheat or spelt flour along with some unbleached (non enriched!) white flour, and my rye sourdough starter. That way, we get the benefits of rye and whole grain flours, and the white flour adds some lightness. 
  • Starter – Use active, bubbly starter. For this recipe, I feed my starter at least 3 times, about 12 hours apart before I make my pizza dough. 
  • Pizza tools – Use a pizza stone if you can. This really helps you get a nice, crisp outside to the crust. If you don’t have a pizza stone, you can use a regular pizza pan lined with parchment paper.

Sourdough pizza crust recipe directions

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. Mix the sourdough starter, 1 TBSP oil, salt, and 1 cup flour together. 
  2. Add flour, about 1/4 cup at a time, until dough forms a ball.
  3. Let dough sit for at least 7 hours, and up to several days in the refrigerator. (If you’re in a rush, you can let it sit for as little as 30 minutes at room temperature, but I prefer a longer rise time for health benefits like better digestibility and nutrient availability.)
  4. Take dough out of the fridge (if you refrigerated it) several hours before you want to use it, so it can come to room temperature. 
  5. Preheat oven to 500ºF.
  6. Put some avocado oil on the pizza stone or parchment paper covered pizza pan.
  7. Put dough on stone or pan, and use your hands to press the dough out into a large, flat circle with a thicker outer edge. 
  8. Bake crust on lowest rack in oven for 7 minutes. 
  9. Take crust out of oven, top with your favorite pizza toppings, and bake again until crust begins to lightly brown and cheese melts, about 10 minutes.

Homemade pizza toppings

When we make pizza at home, we like to top it with marinara sauce, homemade mozzarella cheese, and natural pepperoni. 

You can also get creative and use so many other toppings!
