I hate wasting food, so I’m always looking for ways to reduce, reuse or recycle the food, especially when it comes to my precious sourdough starter!

I often use the discarded sourdough starter and make up a batch of pizza dough & freeze it for when I want to use them. 

Simply thaw, roughly 30 min, pending weather and you are ready to top.

Drizzle a bit of olive oil, a load of fresh minced garlic & herbs, sprinkle of sea salt flakes, bake @ 290c or 554f till edges are brown & bobs your uncle ๐Ÿ˜‹.

By using the natural fermentation of the starter, no yeast is required ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป.

Sourdough is also easier to digest and very nutritious compared to some of your normal bread.

So Easy To Make

To make, you will need

100g of sourdough starter

600g of sifted 00 flour 

2 tbsp of olive oil 

400 mil of water

2 tsp of sea salt flakes 

Instructions

๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค

In a mixer bowl, using a whisk, loosening (mix) sourdough starter with 200mil of water.

Then add the sifted flour, olive oil, remainder 200mil of water and mix on medium speed with the dough hook attachment until dough forms.

Slowly increase the speed until dough no longer stick to the bowl. Roughly 5 min.

Then let it rest in the mixer bowl for 30 min.

In a small bowl, mix 50g of water with 1 tsp of sea salt flakes till salt have dissolved. 

Pour salt solution into rested dough and mix on low, till solution is completely incorporated. 

Turn speed up to high and mix dough for another 5 min or until dough is soft and elastically in texture.

Lightly grease a large bowl with some olive oil and place dough in bowl. Cover and let dough rest overnight in the refrigerator.

Next day, cut dough into 4, shape into balls and let it rest at room temperature for an 1hr or so before shaping to use.

Each piece makes roughly 20cm base. Use immediately or put shaped pizza base in the freezer for later use ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

If you donโ€™t have sourdough starter, a packet of the 7g instant yeast will work too.

This Sourdough Base Is Great For Pizza Too!

Once youโ€™ve made your own, you wonโ€™t buy store bought ever again ๐Ÿ˜‹.

Enjoy!
