Use up sourdough discard with this super quick sourdough pancake pizza

I often get queries on how to veganize certain recipes that call for some dairy additions like yogurt or commercially-made rising agents, etc. And while I share a lot of stuff about sourdough now, I further get queries on what exactly is sourdough.

Today, when a student of mine asked how to use up sourdough discard Apart from fermenting rotis (Indian flatbreads), puris and luchisI was tempted to do a trial which will not ask for too much of oil, ghee or sugar.

I would love to share the same recipe with my readers here. Do read for the step by step recipe of sourdough pancake pizza. It’s a minimal, no-run recipe, and if you’re a sourdough baker, you can thank me later.
