Pizza Using Sour Dough Discard

Pizza Using Sour Dough Discard

Obviously we love making sour dough bread, but the cool thing about sour dough, is it can really be added to so many recipes, which allows you to use your discard! Plus, adds that fermented goodness to any recipe! 

This recipe is one of my favorite quick lunches to make for me and the kids, plus it's pizza! So everyone happy! 

Today's lunch was made with the most random pizza toppings because we are at the end of our Pantry Challenge we hosted in January, which included only spending $50 for a week and using what you had in stock in your fridge/pantry to cook, so here's what I had!

Here's what you need:

  • Round Cast Iron Skillet
  • Sour Dough Discard
  • Pizza Sauce + Toppings of your choice


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and put a round cast iron skillet in it
  2. After the oven is preheated, take it out and pour about 1/3-1/2 cup of sour dough discard into the hot pan. Swish your pan around so that the discard gets all around the pan, and even up the sides slightly. (it should already start sticking very thinly since the pan is hot)
  3. Put the pan back in the oven for about 5 minutes (your dough shouldn't be wet when it's done, if it is, add it back for a couple more minutes)
  4. Take the pan out and add your toppings
  5. Add the pan back to the oven until cheese is melted
  6. ENJOY!

Seriously, it's that easy, and so delish! 

Today I topped mine with homemade pesto (a pizza sauce fave of mine), I had a leftover meatball I cut up and used for meat, then shredded cheese and goat cheese. When it was done I topped it with my favorite Creamy Chipotle Sauce that just makes everything amazing! 

Happy Cooking! Hope you love it! 

Here's a video on how to make it!
