Audrey Sherman Kelly's Summertime Sourdough Pizza Dough

This is a simple pizza dough recipe made with a sourdough starter. Great dough should be made with only a few ingredients, ideally of good quality. The secret ingredient to any great dough is time. It takes time for the dough to develop and ferment, resulting in a flavorful, chewy and easily digestible crust.
