Biga-Style (Firm) Starter

Pizza Dough

  • All of starter
  • ¾ cup water
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ½ Tablespoon honey or barley malt syrup
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1 Tablespoon kosher salt


For the Starter:

  • Combine sourdough starter, flour, and water in the bowl of an electric mixer.
  • Mix on low speed for 1 minute.
  • Increase speed to medium-high and mix for an additional four minutes, until smooth.
  • Place in a clean bowl or plastic container. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 4 hours.
  • Place in refrigerator overnight.

For the Dough:

  • Remove starter form the refrigerator about an hour before you are ready to start.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine water and starter and mix until smooth.
  • Add olive oil, honey, and flour and mix to a rough dough.
  • Cover, and let stand for 30 minutes.
  • Add salt and mix with dough hook until dough is smooth about 10 to 12 minutes.
  • Place in a clean bowl or plastic container. Cover, and allow to rise at room temperature for 3-4 hours, until doubled in bulk.
  • Turn dough out onto a floured surface and divide into desired portions.
  • Round each portion, cover with a cloth or napkin, and allow to rest for 10 minutes.
  • Roll out (or throw) each portion, and proceed with pizza recipe.


  • If you want to make this recipe vegan, you can substitute the honey for your favorite vegan sweetener. I.E. Barley malt syrup, agave, etc.
  • We used a high-gluten flour for this recipe. If you use a traditional bread flour, you may need to decrease the water.
  • You can also par bake this crust to have for later.
  • Don’t wanna make pizza or don’t have time the next day? Don’t worry! After the final mix, you can place the dough back into the fridge until needed.
