Einkorn Sourdough Pizza

You've probably seen a pizza dough recipe before, but did you know that you can make real  sourdough pizza, too? If you're on a traditional foods diet, grains are supposed to be sprouted, soaked or soured. Thankfully, sourdough pizza tastes great and is easy to make!

Now there's no more need for that grocery-store active dry yeast in a jar - just grab your jar of sourdough starter and make some pizza!

Jar Tips

One jar of Homemade Pizza Sauce makes two pizzas.

Dough Ingredients

  • 6 cups einkorn flour (all-purpose or whole grain)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup bubbly and active sourdough starter (I don't typically measure this; a little more works just as well!)
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • Olive oil

Pizza Topping Ingredients

  • Homemade Pizza Sauce
  • Italian seasoning
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Uncured natural pepperonis
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions

1. Add all ingredients to the large (6 qt) mixing bowl of a stand mixer.

2. Use the dough hook attachment, and mix the ingredients on speed 2 until they begin to form a ball. Try not to overmix.

3. Remove the bowl and either with a stiff spatula or your hands, form the dough into a ball, and oil it.

4. Cover, and let proof at room temperature for 4 to 10 hours. This recipe is very forgiving, and even if the dough doesn't appear to have risen, it will most likely rise in the hot oven during baking.

Pizza Preparation

1. Preheat the oven to 450F with an oven-safe stainless steel baking sheet in it.

2. Cut four pieces of parchment paper large enough to accommodate a pizza crust. You can lightly flour it if you'd like, but this isn't necessary.

3. Once the dough has proofed, divide it into four equal parts, and place each smaller dough ball onto a piece of the parchment paper.

4. Gently begin spreading out the dough to increase the diameter of the circle by stretching and pushing on it with your hands.

5. Once the dough is your desired thickness, size and shape, top it with Homemade Pizza Sauce, Italian seasoning, mozzarella and pepperonis.

6. Carefully remove the baking sheet and slide the parchment paper onto it. Place in the oven for 14-15 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and     begins to brown.

7. Remove from the oven and let cool a few minutes before sprinkling with salt (optional) and slicing.

Tips

  • I usually bake two pizzas (with one jar of homemade sauce) and then par-bake the other two crusts to freeze for later.
  • To par-bake a crust, bake it without any toppings for 4 minutes at 450F. Let cool completely prior to wrapping and freezing. When ready to use, add your favorite toppings, and bake as usual (adding an extra minute or two if necessary).
