Sourdough Discard Pizza Dough

A quick and easy sourdough discard pizza dough that you can make anytime!



  • 1 cup sourdough starter
  • 1 tsp organic instant yeast
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 4 tsp organic honey
  • 3 tbs EV olive oil
  • 4 cups organic  bread flour
  • 3 1/2 tsp salt



  1. Measure out the sourdough starter, water, honey, and yeast.  Stir together until the sourdough starter and honey are dissolved into the water.
  2. Now add the oil, flour, and salt into the bowl and gently stir together with a dough whisk or knife.  Cover with plastic wrap and allow the dough to sit for around 30 minutes. (The dough will seem a little dry and shaggy and that’s ok!)
  3. Now, tip the dough out onto the counter or cutting board and knead it really well using your hands.  This is a lovely dough to work with, and with the right kneading, it will become soft and silky.  I find it takes around 10 minutes to come together when kneading.
  4. Once the dough is silky and elastic, pop it into a warm bowl. (I warm a bowl with hot water and then dry it – this speeds up the rising.)
  5. Cover with cling wrap or a damp tea towel and leave to rise until it has doubled. (I just let it sit overnight.)
  6. Once the dough has doubled, separate the dough into smaller balls so they are ready to be rolled out.  I separate this dough into 4 equal dough balls. Leave the balls on your counter top, covered with a tea towel for around 30 minutes to allow the gluten to relax.
  7. Once you’re ready to make your bases, use your fingers to press your dough into a pizza round or simply on a cookie sheet.  If you need to stretch the dough, pick it up and move your hands around the edges, allowing the dough’s own weight to stretch it out into a round. Avoid using a rolling pin if you can to maintain your dough’s sourdough character and give it a good structure when baked.
  8. Place your pizza dough onto pizza peels ready to top with your favorite toppics.  When you are ready to bake, pre-heat your oven to 450 F and make sure it’s HOT! Place your pizzas into the hot oven for around 15 minutes or until toppings are cooked and bases are crispy on the bottom.
