Overnight Sourdough Pizza Dough

Sourdough pizza dough is easy to make ahead so pizza night is a snap!  Basically, you already have the sourdough starter, for your bread baking, so you may as well use it for pizza dough, right? Before we started making sourdough pizza, we didn’t realize what we were missing. The crispy edges, the chewy crust, but mostly, the wonderful sourdough flavor!

Instead of tossing that discard, lets make pizza dough! Since this recipe calls for it to be made ahead, you are gonna wanna plan to make it at least the day before your pizza party!

First, you are gonna want to have a digital food scale. But if you are a sourdough bread maker, you probably already have one! The measurements are in grams, but it is super easy, once you set your glass dishes on the scale, and measure it out! And this pizza is worth it!

Next, you are gonna wanna plan to have the ingredients on hand for pizza toppings! Tomato sauce or garlic oil make a great base. Without a doubt, you will want to have a block of mozzarella cheese that you can grate fresh! Obviously you will want a variety of veggies, and meats.

Below are some of our favorite pizza toppings:

  • Garlic oil
  • Tomato sauce
  • Freshly shredded mozzarella
  • Thinly sliced red onions
  • Italian sausage
  • Pancetta or Bacon
  • Prosciutto
  • Cherry tomatoes, halved
