Oregano Sourdough Pizza Crust

Every now and then it feels good to make something that is not super healthy…or even moderately healthy.  Normally when doing pizza I make a standard crusty crust or a semi-healthy cauliflower crust, but this time I decided to try something different.  I have mentioned my sourdough starter, Gunther, before and decided to give a sourdough crust a try.  My bread machine cookbook has a recipe for sourdough, but after a quick glance I realized it need a boost to make it more pizza like.  The end result was a delicious deep dish experience that was filled to the brim with toppings.

Oregano Sourdough Pizza Crust

serves 4-5

Ingredients

3 cups bread flour

1 tbsp oregano

2 tbsp EVOO

3/4 cup starter

3/4 tsp salt

1 1/2 cup water

1 1/2 tsp yeast

Instructions

  1. Add ingredients to bread machine per instructions, setting it for Pizza-Dough Medium if you have the options.
  2. Once dough is ready roll out onto a 12 inch pizza pan. Fold the crust under and allow to rise for 30minutes,
  3. Top as desired and then place in to a cold oven. Turn heat to 450 and bake for 35 minutes, the crust should be brown and cheese bubbly. Allow to cool and then enjoy!!!

I’m also hoping that my doctor is not reading this because I have a feeling she would not approve of the insane amount of cheese used in this recipe.   Probably shouldn’t eat something like this on a regular basis, but hopefully she can overlook the occasional indulgence.
