That's A Some Starter

Since 1917

This starter originated in the Klondike gold rush of 1897. In the summer of 1983 my family started weekend pizza cook offs with a friend. After months of experimenting we found that using our friends family starter from the Klondike gold rush made fantastic pizza crust. Since that summer we have been feeding and using that starter to make over 2000 pounds of pizza dough a week.

Characteristics

This is a 120 year old sourdough starter from the Klondike gold rush that we have been using to make pizza dough for over 34 years. Ive been its care taker since I was 5 years old and recently won the Caputo Cup with it, making me one of the top Pizzaiolos in USA and my sourdough pizza some of the best in the United States!

Recipe

Starting ingredients

  • 50% High gluten flour

Feeding ingredients

  • 5lbs Flour
  • 5lbs Water
1
For every batch of dough we make we use 10#'s of active starter. We feed our starter every evening and use it every morning, 12 hours later. We've found after 12 hours it is most active, and gives us the most leaven possible for our pizza dough.
