WILD DOUGH

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

White Cheddar Pesto Sauce*

  • 2 cups White cheddar
  • 1 cup Cream
  • 2 tbsp Butter

  • ½ tbsp Flour
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ¼ tsp Pepper

Macaroni and Cheese*

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 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)

White Cheddar Pesto Sauce*

  • Grate cheddar cheese.
  • Heat large pot to medium and melt butter, whisking constantly. Add flour and whisk 30 seconds. Add cream and whisk to mix well, then add white cheddar, salt and pepper.
  • Bring to a boil, then turn off the heat and let cool. Reserve 1 cup of cheese sauce for the pizza sauce. Use remaining cheese sauce for macaroni and cheese.

Macaroni and Cheese*

  • Bring water to a boil in a large pot, then add noodles. Bring to a boil and cook for 8-10 minutes. Drain. Add remaining cheese sauce and mix well. Reserve 2 cups of mac n cheese.

PIZZA (8-10 minutes)

  • Grate mozzarella.
  • Preheat oven to 550 degrees F. with baking steel or pizza stone inside the oven for 1 hour.
  • Flour surface and roll out the dough. Put a floured pizza peel underneath the dough. Add white cheddar pesto sauce, mozzarella, and mac n cheese. 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!
