Whole Wheat Sourdough Pizza Crust


This crust is jammed pack full of flavors! The sourdough adds a whole new twist to the dough, it almost ruins any other pizza you will ever try.

If you are wondering what sauce would match the taste of sourdough, pesto works delightfully. I used homemade Pesto from last year's Basil crop as the sauce. You can also use traditional tomato sauce or get crazy with some barbecue sauce.

An ingredient used in this was the King Arthur's Pizza Dough Flavor. I really recommend getting this ingredient for all your pizza crust recipes. You will be pleasantly surprised by the little extra kick of tastiness it adds to your dough.

  • 1 cup sourdough starter
  • 1 tablespoon butter, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup spelt flour
  • 2 2/3 tablespoon pizza dough flavor
  • luke warm water (save on the side)
Except for salt and water, combine ingredients in a bowl. Add water, one tablespoon at a time, until dry ingredients form into a ball. Cover bowl and let rise for 20 min. After the 20 minutes is up, knead in salt until dough is sticky. Let rise an additional 4-6 hours.

After the rising period is done, place a baking stone in oven and preheat oven to 425°F. Roll out dough to the desire thickness, add toppings. Bake pizza 15-20 minutes or until cheese darkens.

Hope you enjoy this pizza as much as we did!
