2 cups of sourdough starter
2 cups of all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Add starter to mixer set with dough hook. Gradually add 2 tablespoons of olive oil, salt and 2 cups of flour. Knead with the mixer for about 5 minutes until the dough is a cohesive mass. Allow dough to rest in an oiled bowl for an hour or two. Do not expect this dough to rise much.
Preheat oven to 500.
Divide dough in half and roll out two pizza shells. Bake on a pizza stone for 8 minutes. Remove from oven. At this point the pizza shells can be frozen, when cooled, for later use, or they can be topped as desired and baked in the oven until browned and cheese is melted.
