Recently, I was given a sourdough starter. It’s taken me awhile to learn how to use my starter, and to be honest, there’s still lots to learn. The great news is, making a pizza crust has been super easy- even for a newbie like me! You can buy a starter or start your own with water and flour. I’m really looking forward to showing to you all of my sourdough starter adventures!
Yesterday, I posted a yummy recipe on a flatbread that used a pizza crust base. While you can easily buy pizza crusts, if you’re yeast free like me, or looking for something unique and fun-it can be hard. Store bought crusts are often dry and pretty plain. Thus, I like to make my own crust. In the past, I’ve made a biscuit pizza dough for myself, however while I love this crust, it’s pretty thick and buttery. This sourdough crust however is light and soft, without being buttery and heavy.
