RECIPE: Neapolitan Style Sourdough Pizza

Updated: 14 hours ago

Here is my sourdough pizza recipe for non commercial use. I hope you will like it. Don't forget to share your creation and tag me on social media.




What you will need?

Mother starter (4-8 hrs before the final mix):

10g mother starter

50g organic flour

50g luke warm water

Final dough mix:

500g 00 Flour Pizzeria Caputo Blue

300-330g warm water (60-66%)

12g salt

83-85g levain mix


If you want to make an authentic Neapolitan pizza, the way to do it is to use a 00 flour high in gluten (60-65% hydration) and a very high temperature oven. I would recommend an OONI pizza oven.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Dissolve the leaven (83-85g) in the water (320g) and then slowly add and mix flour (500g) in. After there is no flour left and all is combined add salt and water (10g) and knead for a couple of minutes. Transfer the mixture to the counter and knead it till you get a silky and elastic dough, till window pane stage (10 minutes).

  2. Cover the dough and bulk ferment it for 4 hrs at room temperature (RT). After the first hour in bulk fermentation do a Stretch & Fold and leave it to rest for another 3 hours.

  3. When bulk fermentation is complete, divide your dough into 4 pieces and shape each of them into nice smooth balls (you should get 3x 240g, and 1x 160g). Then, transfer the dough balls into a plastic container and put them in the fridge for 24-40 hours.

  4. After that, when cold fermentation (CT) is over, take them out and leave them covered at room temperature (RT) for 2-4hrs.

  5. Lastly, stretch your pizza, add toppings and bake it for 90 seconds (rotating every 20-30s) at 420+°C! 😉
