Had to have sourdough pizza before Thanksgiving

We really love this simple recipe which is equal parts sourdough starter and flour (I did 1 cup to make a small pizza, 1-1/2 for larger), tablespoon of olive oil, and teaspoon of salt.  Let it sit for 30 minutes and then roll it out very thin. Just bake it on a pizza stone at 500 degrees for four minutes or so, take it out and coat with olive oil to seal, and then add your ingredients.  Bake it for 5 or so more minutes, and it's done.  Fantastic.  We really enjoyed it. I added pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, marinated black and green olives, artichoke hearts and a touch of gorgonzola. (Season it with oregano as well).   It's a great way to use sourdough starter and creates a really thin and crispy crust if you like it thin vs. thick.  Love it.
