  • Total Time: 35 mins
  • Yield: 1 pizza 1x


  • 300 grams of bread flour
  • 150 grams sourdough starter (100% hydration)
  • 200 grams water
  • 8 grams salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the bread flour, sourdough starter, and water. Mix until a shaggy dough forms. Cover the bowl with a damp cloth or plastic wrap and let it rest for 30 minutes (autolyze).
  2. After the autolyze, sprinkle the salt over the dough and knead it for 5-10 minutes until the dough becomes smooth and elastic.
  3. Drizzle the olive oil over the dough and knead again for a few minutes until the oil is fully incorporated.
  4. Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover it, and let it rise at room temperature for about 4-6 hours until it has doubled in size. Alternatively, you can refrigerate the dough overnight for a slow fermentation that enhances the flavor.
  5. Preheat your oven to the highest temperature (usually around 500°F or 260°C). If you have a pizza stone, place it in the oven during the preheating process.
  6. Once the dough has risen, transfer it to a floured surface. Divide it into two equal portions and shape each portion into a ball. Cover the balls with a damp cloth or plastic wrap and let them rest for 15-30 minutes.
  7. Take one dough ball and gently stretch and shape it into a round or oval shape using your hands or a rolling pin. Aim for a thin crust, but with a slightly thicker edge.
  8. Transfer the stretched dough onto a lightly floured or parchment-lined baking sheet or pizza peel.
  9. Add your desired pizza toppings, such as sauce, cheese, and other ingredients.
  10. Carefully slide the topped pizza onto the preheated pizza stone or directly onto a baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for about 10-12 minutes until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is bubbly.
  11. Repeat the stretching, topping, and baking process with the second dough ball.
  12. Once baked, remove the pizzas from the oven, let them cool for a few minutes, slice, and enjoy your homemade sourdough New York-style pizza!
