Easy and tasty sourdough pizza



150g active sourdough starter.

250g warm water.

25g olive oil.

500g flour.

10g salt.

1/2 teaspoon yeast (optional).


34 tablespoons of tomato puree.

1 teaspoon of oregano.

1 teaspoon of basil.

1 teaspoon garlic granules.

Salt and pepper to taste.


Combine all the wet ingredients, and whisk to ensure they’re combined.

Add the flour and salt, and combine into a smooth ball with your hands.

Rest the dough for four to eight hours in an airtight container, or until increased in size and smells fresh and yeasty.

While the dough is resting and rising, make the sauce. Combine the sauce ingredients in a bowl with little water to achieve a sauce-like texture. Make sure to grate your cheese and preheat the oven to its maximum temperature.

Place the pizza on a baking sheet and assemble all your ingredients, making sure to get an even coat of both sauce and cheese.

Place the pizza in the preheated oven and cook for ten minutes at most in order to ensure you get a soft, lightly steamed pizza dough.

Remove the pizza from the oven, slice, and serve! This recipe can serve four or more people or one hungry person over several days. To make a batch more suitable for one person, simply halve the ingredients, and follow the instructions the same.
