Sourdough Pizza Base

Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 1 cup sourdough starter
  • ½ cup warm tap water
  • 2½ cups Plain Flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Small amount of semolina (optional)
  1. Mix the starter and water together and make sure the starter breaks up.
  2. Sprinkle 1 cup of flour onto the mix and combine. Leave covered for an hour.
  3. Mix and knead in the rest of the flour. Knead until smooth.
  4. Leave covered for 30 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle on the salt and then knead until you cannot feel the salt any more.
  6. Rest, covered until the dough doubles in size.
  7. Roll and press out to make your crust. I roll using semolina as the flour to stop it sticking, this gives a crunchier crust. You can use a tin or make it ready to go on a pizza stone. Let sit for an hour or so until ready to add your toppings.
  8. Add toppings and bake at 180C until cooked.
