This is a quick and easy pizza dough that does not take long to prepare and requires only a few basic ingredients. Keep in mind, though, that this dough relies on sourdough as raising agent, so unfortunately you cannot spontaneously make pizza with this recipe. (For a spontaneous pizza craving, check my dough recipe based on fresh yeast.) What I often do, however, is that I use leftover sourdough from baking bread in the morning and quickly whip up the batter for pizza dough. Then I let it rest until the late afternoon and we simply have pizza for dinner. It makes me very popular at home. 🙂


Enough for 2 baking trays.

How to Make It

  • Mix the flour with the salt and sugar. Add the olive oil and the sourdough.
  • Mix it all together and slowly add the lukewarm yeast water.
  • Knead the dough for about 10 minutes until you have a homogeneous and smooth mass.
  • Put the dough in an oiled bowl, cover it, and let it rest in a warm spot for at least 3-4 hours. The dough should have almost doubled its size.

  • You can now use the dough to bake your pizza. Check out my recipes for pizza sauce as well as my ideas for pizza toppings for inspiration.
