Sourdough Starter Pizza Crust Recipe (Vegan, Dairy Free)

Sourdough starter pizza crust recipe is a great way to use castoff or discard sourdough starter! Mix with flour, yeast, and herbs to make a crispy delicious homemade pizza crust!
Pizza night is becoming a favorite on our homestead, and with this easy crust we can make from our sourdough starter (and a little delish homemade pizza sauce!) we can make fresh pizza anytime.

This Homemade Sourdough Pizza Crust Is:

  • Herby
  • Garlicky
  • Slightly Tart from the sourdough starter
  • Earthy
  • Easy to make with sourdough discard
  • Vegan!

This crust gets really crispy on the outside and the bottom of the pizza, which holds the toppings so well! The flavor from the dried rosemary is fantastic, and it has a nice garlicky bite!

What’s In This Pizza Crust?

  • Sourdough Starter Discard/Castoff, about 1 cup
  • Flour
  • Water
  • Yeast
  • Salt
  • Garlic powder
  • Rosemary or any other dried herbs you’d like!

You can definitely switch up the herbs in this dough if you want different flavors: some basil and oregano would be delish!  I went with rosemary and garlic, because my homemade tomato paste pizza sauce features both of those herbs so I wanted it to compliment the sauce!

How Do I Make The Pizza Crust Dough?

  1. Place 1 cup of your Sourdough starter in a large bowl.  Add the rest of the dough ingredients, and mix well to combine.
  2. Knead dough for 10 minutes until the dough begins to thicken and gluten strands begin to form.
  3. Allow dough to rest for 2-6 hours, covered, in a warm spot.
I love finding new ways to use my sourdough discard… aside from making the perfect sourdough bread, this is probably my favorite way to use the sourdough discard!

OK, Dough’s Made, Let’s Bake the Perfect Pizza!

  1. Divide the dough into 2 equal balls.  Each ball will make a 12 inch pizza.
  2. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. Roll the dough out to fill a 12 inch pizza pan or a 13x18inch sheet pan.  Allow dough to rest for 15 minutes.  Put on pizza sauce and any toppings but NOT the cheese yet.
  4. Place the pans of the dough, sauce, and toppings in the oven for 8 minutes.  Remove the pizza and add the cheese.  Cook for an additional 7 to 9 minutes, making sure the cheese has melted but the crust doesn’t burn.
  5. Remove from oven, cut into slices, and enjoy!
Pizza is amazing because its so versatile and customizable. Clearly, I am #TeamPineapple as love that salty/sweet balance on my pizza… and  I also loaded this one with red peppers, mushrooms, and onions because that’s what we had in the fridge that day. Pizza is super versatile and can be made with pretty much anything, for any meal of the day! This crust acts as an excellent building foundation for any pizza of your dreams.
