First attempt at sourdough pizza
« on: Yesterday at 08:25:29 PM »
A few weeks back I began a sourdough starter and it's been doing well. The starter is equal parts flour and water.  So I made my normal pizza but substituted 1/2 cup of starter and subtracted my flour and water by 1/4 cup of each. It tastes pretty good but is much more dense than when I make my dough with yeast.  I'm going to experiment with this a bit more.

More time (fermenting/proofing) might yield better texture (and taste) than more starter.

Also, your efforts will progress more rapidly if you use a scale rather than volume measurements.
