A great way to use your extra sourdough starter is to make pizza! Sourdough has many advantages and health benefits over regular dough. The sourdough bacteria pre-digests the flour, which releases the micronutrients in the flour making them more available for the body to use. Sourdough also takes longer to digest keeping you fuller; studies have shown that spelt flour added to sourdough can help regulate blood sugar levels which helps ward off diabetes. Have fun with this simple dough by experimenting on your own!
