Servings 2 Pizzas


  • 2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 cup Sourdough Discard
  • 1 tsp Instant Yeast
  • 1 ½ cups Warm Water
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil


  • In a small bowl, add the water and top with the teaspoon of instant yeast. Set that aside and let it sit for 5 minutes. The yeast should be frothy when you add it to the flour.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook, add both the flours and the salt. Mix that around for a few seconds to combine the ingredients.
  • Add the yeast and water to the mixture. Add the starter and extra virgin olive oil. Turn the mixer on low and mix everything for 5 minutes until a cohesive ball forms and there is no flour left on the bottom of the stand mixer.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let that rise for 3-4 hours at room temperature. It should double in size.
  • When it has risen, separate the dough into two balls. Lightly flour your surface and roll the dough out into the thickness you prefer for pizza. Add the toppings of your choice and bake at 425 degrees for at least 20 minutes.
