Equipment

Ingredients

TOPPINGS

  • ½ cup Mozzarella
  • ½ cup Cheddar
  • ½ cup Havarti
  • ½ cup Monterey Jack
  • ½ cup Smoked Gruyere
  • ½ cup Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • ½ cup Edam
  • ½ cup Gouda

SAUCE

  • ¼ cup Pesto

WILD DOUGH

  • 2 cups Sourdough Starter active
  • 1 cup Bread Flour
  • 1 tsp Salt

Instructions

Wild Dough (1 hour)

  • Make your dough by mixing the sourdough starter, flour and salt together (adding a bit of flour at a time until it takes shape but is still a little sticky) and knead the dough for about 30 seconds.
  • Place the wild dough in a lightly floured bowl and cover with a towel, set aside for 1 hour. (The pizza steel or stone needs to preheat for 1 hour as well, so preheat oven to 550 degrees after you finish making your pizza dough)

PIZZA (8-10 minutes)

  • Preheat oven to 550 degrees F. with baking steel or pizza stone inside the oven for 1 hour.
  • Grate cheese, removing any cheese peels, wax or hard rinds.
  • Flour surface and roll out the dough. Put a floured pizza peel underneath the dough.
  • Add sauce, then cheese. Pat down the toppings before putting into the oven.
  • Bake pizza in the oven at 550 degrees F. for 8-10 minutes.
  • Remove pizza from oven with pizza peel. Let cool for 5 minutes.
