There's something extra special about cooking with home-produced ingredients. We use fresh eggs from our own free-range hens and spinach leaves from our kitchen garden to top these Sourdough Fiorentina pizzas, and they really do make all the difference...
Is sourdough pizza better for you?
Making sourdough pizza from scratch is easy: you just need flour, salt, water, starter and time. Getting a really vigorous starter is very important, and the long, slow fermentation, coupled with the extra fibre from the wholegrain flour in this recipe, means it is healthier than a yeasted pizza. What's more, this approach helps to control blood sugar.
Is sourdough pizza healthy?
Our sourdough pizza is really healthy. It starts with making your own sourdough pizza dough, then topping it with fresh, high-quality ingredients. Homemade pizza is immeasurably better for you than takeaway pizza: there is less salt, less fat and more fibre. This pizza is more satiating and also delivers more nourishment to the gut microbiome.
Easy pizza recipe
This pizza recipe is quick and easy. The fermentation is the long bit, and we recommend that you freeze one of the pizza bases, so you have one in the freezer ready to bake on a Friday night, straight from the freezer when you want pizza the most.
