Using Starter- Pizza Dough! 

We all know you can buy pre-made pizza dough and make a lack luster pizza crust. It is time to level up your pizza game and make your own dough using your own starter. We have detailed instructions on how to go from a novice dough maker to a world class pizza expert. Grab your Pizzacraft® gear and let's get to work on a masterpiece!

We have a recipe about how to make your own starter and recipes on how to make your own pizza dough, but we forgot to show you how to use your starter in your recipe. Using a starter in you dough can add a lot of character and flavor to your pizza that you can’t get from commercial yeast.

 This recipe was developed to add flavor to the crust without turning it into a sourdough pizza crust. To do this we don’t add a ton of starter and let that starter slowly work its magic. The process is longer than your average dough recipe, but I think once you give it a try you will have a hard time going back to using store bought yeast.

1 Packet Instant Yeast (0.25oz)
13 oz Water
.5 oz starter about 2 tablespoons of starter

Instructions-

Combine starter and water in a small bowl. Stir until dissolved.
Place flour and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer. Using the dough hook on your
mixer, turn on low to combine flour and salt.
Slowly add the water and starter to the bowl making sure to scrape the dough off
the sides of the mixing bowl with a silicone spatula. Continue until all flour is
hydrated.
Once the dough is has a smooth appearance, remove from bowl and cover it with
plastic wrap.
In a large covered container or bowl leave the dough mixture to rest on the counter for 4 hours before placing it in the fridge for 24 hours.
Remove the dough from the refrigerator and divide it into thirds and roll into balls.
Dust a baking dish with flour and place the balls in the dish and cover with plastic
wrap. Return the dough to the fridge for another 24 hours
Before cooking pizza remove the dough from the fridge and allow it to come to room temperature before trying to stretch it, about 2 hours.
