The Many Faces of Sourdough – Pizza Crust, Chocolate Cake and more!!

Did you know that you can do more with your sourdough starter than just a loaf? What if I told you sourdough pizza crust is in your future? (I know, you can thank me someday – I’ll take a cheese pie, please!)

The Many Faces of Sourdough - Pizza Crust, Chocolate Cake and more!!  #pizza #sourdough #chocolatecake

Before I started researching sourdough and its benefits over other homemade bread methods, I thought sourdough bread was just…sour bread. It was just “ok” in my book. I had no idea that the majority of age-old, traditional breads, rolls, baked goods and more were actually all made with wild yeast (or sourdough starter <—— by the way, you can learn how to easily make your own here or buy a starter here).

Imagine my surprise when I began seeing recipes for waffles, cinnamon buns, doughnuts, apple muffins, pumpkin bread, and more!

You can see my delish and easy sourdough waffles here: Make-ahead Christmas Breakfast – 10+ Recipes!

I make a double batch of them every two weeks – we eat one batch over one weekend and pull out the second batch over the following weekend! Easy.Peasy!

You can also use whatever flours and combinations of them that you’d like (organic, if at all possible, please!).

There are just so many options for using sourdough, it’s not even funny! But it is yummy!

Which one are you gonna try first??

A Sweet Note

Now you may notice that some of these recipes call for sugar. I have no problem (at this point in my life 😉 ) with the occasional sugar intake – as long as they are natural and unprocessed or non-refined sugars. In our home, I use raw and locally produced honey and Grade B maple syrup (this one is my fave!). I also use succanat occasionally (we mainly use this to sweeten our coffee).

I feel that with the lifestyle changes our family has made with food, it is not necessary to eliminate any glimpse of sweetener completely. That being said, my children are still just two (yes, triplets, for those of you joining me for the first time!) and I rarely give them anything sweet. (Time enough to fight those battles in the future!)

So, lest you think I have abandoned my real food principles, rest assured: I have not. 🙂

Ok, now tell me – which recipe are you making first??? I’m putting the sourdough pizza crust on the menu!
