For the recipe Sourdough Pizza


1 Screw-Top Jar
Hand Mixer with Kneading Attachment
Dish Towel (fresh & clean)
Baking Tray
Rolling Pin if needed
Clean Dish Towel
Baking Paper

For the sourdough:

25 g Sourdough Starter (from starter culture)
50 g Pizza Flour (type 00) (Pizza Flour substitute: Bread Flour)
50 g Lukewarm Water

For pizza dough:

100 g Sourdough
400 g Pizza Flour (type 00) (Another flour option: bread flour)
260 g Lukewarm Water
10 g Salt
Olive Oil for the baking tray




The day before prepare the sourdough

For best results, prepare the sourdough in the morning, on the day before you wish to make your pizza. Approx. 20 hours prior to baking, mix the starter with pizza flour and water in a screw-top jar and let it rest for four hours in the oven at approx. 28 °C with only the lid on.


For the pizza dough

For the pizza dough, knead the sourdough with pizza flour, water and salt in a bowl for around 10 minutes using the kneading attachment on the hand mixer. Then cover with a clean dish towel and leave in a warm place for roughly 2 hours. 

Every ½ hour, fold the edges of the dough from the outside in. Repeat this step several times. 
Tips: Add extra flour to dust the surface before putting dough on it

Next divide the dough into two pieces, with each piece weighing roughly 250–300 g. Fold again and place on an oiled baking tray. Leave to rest, covered, in the fridge for another 12–15 hours, preferably overnight. 


The following day

The following day, remove the dough from the fridge an hour before using. Then pre-heat the oven (top/bottom heat: 250 °C). On a floured work surface, shape the dough pieces into approx. ø 28 cm round pizzas by hand or with a rolling pin. Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper paper. 250 °C

Groove/Height: Middle

Add your desired toppings and bake for 8–12 minutes on the middle rack.
