  • 2 cups Sourdough starter active
  • 1 cup Bread flour
  • 1 tsp Salt

Buffalo chickpeas*

  • 1 can Chickpeas (540ml)
  • 3 tbsp Hot sauce
  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • ½ tsp Garlic powder
  • ½ tsp Salt

  • 3 cloves Garlic
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 2 tbsp Flour

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 dough in 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)

Buffalo chickpeas*

  • Drain and rinse chickpeas and add to large mixing bowl. Add oil, hot sauce, garlic powder, salt and pepper, mix well. Cook on medium heat for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and set aside.

White garlic sauce*

  • Mince garlic. Melt butter in large sauce pan over med-low heat, whisking constantly. Add garlic, cook for 30 seconds stirring frequently. Add flour, oregano, salt and pepper. Whisk for 30 seconds. Add cream, whisk. Add parmesan cheese, whisk. Cook until desired consistency. Remove from heat and reserve 1 cup.

PIZZA (8-10 minutes)

  • Preheat oven to 550 degrees F. with baking steel or pizza stone inside the oven for 1 hour.
  • Grate mozzarella.
  • Flour surface and roll out the dough. Put a floured pizza peel underneath the dough. Add sauce, cheese, and chickpeas. Pat down the toppings before putting into the oven.
  • Bake pizza in the oven at 550 degrees F. for 8-10 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes, then slice it up!
