Sourdough Pizza

Sourdough Pizza

Tonight I tried using my starter to make a sourdough pizza:

It turned out very good. I was afraid it would be too sour, but the sourness was totally overpowered by the tomato and garlic sauce.

I used something in the ballpark of:

1 cup starter
2 cups bread flour
1 cup water
2 teaspoons salt

I had a bit of extra dough so I made breadsticks too, which are in the foreground.

Is it a new trend to make sourdough pizza?

LOL. Not that I know of, I just needed to refresh my starter and was trying to think of something to do with it this weekend.

Maybe I am on to the "next big thing"... ;-)

before commercial yeast - for many centuries.    I think it is a re-discovery of an 'ancient' 'next big thing :-)

After you mixed the above recipe, how did you treat it?  Did you proceed as in the recipe in the "--Primer"?
