The sourdough starter is a blend of flour, water, and various yeast strains, derived entirely from natural sources. This traditional method of leavening has been utilized for over three millennia and is a substitute for commercial baker's yeast. The mixture, commonly referred to as a sourdough starter, is the result of a fermented process.
The use of Sourdough in pizza dough provides a distinct, natural sour flavour and contributes to the attractive golden colour of the crust.
