WILD PIZZA DOUGH (1 hour)
Make your dough by mixing the sourdough starter, salt, and bread flour (adding a bit of flour at a time until it takes shape but is still a little sticky)
Knead the dough for 30 seconds, flour lightly as needed.
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°F after you finish making your pizza dough)
CHICKEN FRIED STEAK and GRAVY*
Tenderize steak to 1/4" thick and cut into approx. 3" x 6" strips.
Whisk milk and egg in a bowl to make egg wash.
Mix flour, paprika, cayenne, salt and pepper in a separate bowl.
Coat meat in flour mix, then in egg wash, then back in flour mix. DRY-WET-DRY. Repeat this with all of the meat.
Heat oil over medium heat. Add butter and add meat but don't crowd the pan, cook in 2 batches if needed. Cook meat 2-3 minutes each side until light golden brown. Remove meat and drain on paper towel lined plate. Leave oil in pan for gravy.
Once cool, slice chicken fried steak. Reserve 2 cups.
Melt butter in pan, then add flour and whisk 30 seconds. Add milk, salt and black pepper, whisk until desired thickness. Add more milk if the gravy is too thick. Reserve 1 cup.
Preheat oven to 550°F with baking steel or pizza stone inside the oven.
Cut and steam beans 2 minutes, removing the tips.
Grate mozzarella cheese.
Flour surface and roll out the dough. Put a floured pizza peel underneath the dough.
Add gravy, mozzarella cheese, then chicken fried steak and green beans. Pat down the toppings before putting into the oven.
Bake pizza at 550°F for 8-10 minutes, by sliding pizza onto baking steel with pizza peel.
Remove pizza from oven with pizza peel. Let cool for 5 minutes. Slice it up!
