Are you looking for the BEST Sourdough DIscard Recipe? Sourdough Pizza Margherita is an amazing pizza! It starts with a dough that is easy to put together with your sourdough starter. Fluffy and lighter than a typical dough with a light sourdough tang.

What tomato sauce is best for pizza? Keep it simple with a raw tomato sauce. The flavor is fresh and light. We use pureed San Marzano DOP canned tomatoes. Feel free to use Italian plum tomatoes, a little bit of extra-virgin olive oil, and salt. That is all it takes. 📷

What is the best mozzarella for pizza? We love fresh mozzarella that is not packed in water. Grated cheese does not work for this recipe. We love the BelGioioso brand. I find it every market (or buy something similar). The cheese is cut into 1/2-inch cubes and sprinkled over the pizza.


Can I make this recipe ahead of time? Yes, you can make this pizza ahead of time. Either serve at room temperature or reheat it before serving.
