  1. Warm the water to about 30C (86F), then mix with the flour. Using warm water helps to kick start the hydration, the exact temperature doesn’t really matter, just avoid it being too hot or cold.
  2. Let the flour hydrate for 15-30 minutes, then mix with the sourdough starter and the salt. Kneed as required to bring all of the ingredients together.
  3. Allow the dough to rise in a warm location for 12-14 hours. Use the dough folding procedure 2 times during this rise.
  4. Place the dough on a well floured surface and cut into 5 equal pieces.
  5. Gently shape the dough into a ball, using flour as required, but avoid kneeding.
  6. Lightly oil the dough balls. They can be used right away, but for the best flavour development, store the dough tightly covered in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours, but up to 3 days.
  7. Shape the dough right from the refrigerator just before baking.
  8. Top as desired, and bake as hot as possible until the crust is browning. At 500 F the pizza will be ready in 15 minutes. At 450 F the pizza will be ready in 20 minutes.
