Sourdough discard pizza

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Resting Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 12-15 minutes
Total Time: 52-55 minutes
Servings: 2-4


For the Pizza Dough:

  • 1 cup sourdough discard
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

For the Pizza Toppings:

  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce or marinara sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Your choice of toppings (e.g., pepperoni, sliced bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, olives)


  1. Prepare Pizza Dough:
    • In a mixing bowl, combine the sourdough discard, all-purpose flour, salt, and baking powder. Mix until a dough forms.
    • Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for 2-3 minutes until smooth and elastic. If the dough is too sticky, add a little more flour.
    • Shape the dough into a ball and place it back in the mixing bowl. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and let it rest at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 450°F (230°C). If you have a pizza stone, place it in the oven to preheat as well.
  3. Roll Out Dough:
    • After the dough has rested, transfer it to a lightly floured surface. Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough into a circle or rectangle, about 1/4 inch thick.
  4. Prepare Pizza:
    • Transfer the rolled-out dough to a parchment-lined baking sheet or a pizza peel if using a pizza stone.
    • Spread the pizza sauce or marinara sauce evenly over the dough, leaving a small border around the edges.
    • Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese evenly over the sauce.
    • Arrange your choice of toppings over the cheese.
  5. Bake Pizza:
    • Carefully transfer the assembled pizza to the preheated oven. If using a baking sheet, place it directly on the oven rack. If using a pizza stone, slide the pizza onto the hot stone in the oven.
    • Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is bubbly and melted.
  6. Serve:
    • Remove the pizza from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before slicing.
    • Slice the sourdough discard pizza into wedges or squares and serve hot.
  7. Enjoy:
    • Enjoy your homemade sourdough discard pizza with your favorite toppings! Serve it as a delicious meal or snack for any occasion.

Note: Feel free to customize the pizza toppings according to your preferences. You can also experiment with different sauces, cheeses, and flavor combinations to create your perfect sourdough discard pizza.
