Sourdough Pizza Crust!

Learn how to make this simple Sourdough Pizza Crust that’s perfectly crisp, yet still chewy. Using fed or discarded sourdough starter, this recipe comes together in just a couple hours. Try it out with my Cast Iron Skillet Pizza recipe!


  • ¾ C. warm water
  • 1 C. sourdough starter, fed or discard
  • 2 tsp. yeast
  • 2 C. all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3 Tbsp. vegetable oil


  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine all ingredients and knead well with the dough hook attachment. The dough should pull away from the sides of the bowl but still be slightly tacky.
  2. Cover the bowl with a tea towel and let rise for 2 hours. I add traditional yeast as well to speed up the proofing time. If you’d prefer to not use yeast, you may need more time to let the dough rise.
  3. Once risen, roll out the dough onto a pizza pan or press into a cast iron skillet. Top with your favorite pizza toppings. Bake in a 500℉ oven for 10-12 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is bubbly. This recipe makes enough dough for 1- thick crust 10 or 12 inch pizza, or 2 smaller thin crust pizzas.
