Sourdough Pizza

This is the sourdough pizza recipe I use for a brilliant quick sourdough pizza with all the flavour and none of the wait, because what do we want? PIZZA! And when do we want it? NOW!

Follow the sourdough pizza recipe method below (tried and tested trusty sourdough bread recipe). Add a little extra flour if needed until you have a soft but not sticky dough.

If you want to make this sourdough pizza recipe, you’ll need some sourdough starter. You can buy our sixty year old sourdough starter online.

We like baking pizzas on the baking stone on our Weber barbecue. You will find your pizza will bake much quicker and better if you use one of our baking stones in your oven.


  • 300ml sourdough starter

  • 250ml warm water

  • 500g good quality white flour

  • Big pinch of salt


  1. Weigh the ingredients into the mixing bowl. Mix into a rough dough.

  2. Knead the dough really well until it’s smooth stretchy and soft. Then rest it back in the bowl covered for a minimum 10 mins - half an hour is ideal. 

  3. Then divide into 7x 150g pieces for polite pizzas or 5x 210g large plate pizzas or 3x 350g whopping 20”ers.

  4. Shape them round and cover and rest for a couple of minutes before one at a time rolling them (or throwing them) to make a delicious thin pizza base.

  5. Top and bake on a baking stone as hot as your oven will go.
