Sourdough Discard Pizza Class Materials

Please note! You will need a sourdough starter discard for this class, meaning you need to have a sourdough starter that you feed regularly. Go here for instructions on starting a starter. I also teach a free sourdough starter class every couple of months. You can follow me on Eventbrite to receive updates about that class.
