Sourdough Pizza

Baked two pizzas Sunday night.
Sourdough crusts.
I fed my starter on Saturday morning and
made a Biga.
Saturday evening, the starter went back into the fridge
and the Biga went into a 1000g batch of dough.
Dough went into the fridge for a cold fermentation.
Matt took the dough out of the fridge early Sunday
afternoon so it would be ready to use by the time
I got home from work. 
 Both Pizzas were baked on a stone on the Grill.
Moe and I shared a 
pepperoni and green olive pizza.
And Matt’s  was vegetarian with fresh mozzarella and some cheddar,
 and both black and green olives, tomatoes and green peppers.
