Brandy's GF Sourdough Starter Pizza

I've had some grand adventures with rice sourdough starter.  After Brandy gave me a bit of her starter, I fed and tended it daily.  It grew and grew and grew.  I found a fun tropical pancake recipe, finally purchased all the ingredients, and it turned out as a sour flop.  After trying several recipes, I asked Brandy for a way to love the sourdough starter.  She shared this recipe with me.

Brandy's GF Sourdough Starter Pizza

For a standard baking sheet:
- Line the baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Preheat the oven to 425.
- Take 3 cups of the starter. Mix in 1/4 cup ground flax seed. 2 tsp salt. 1/4 cup olive or coconut oil. 
- Spread the batter on the parchment paper
- Cook the dough into a crust for 12 minutes.
- Remove from oven and top with your favorite toppings.
- Return to oven for about 6 more minutes.
- EAT and enjoy.

I've modified it slightly and made it several times.  My recipes were always more sour than I liked.  Part of the sourdough care is often throwing away much of it so it doesn't get too sour.  I didn't wan to throw away perfectly good food, so I let my starter get too sour.  Finally, after sharing much with willing hosts around me, I cooked up the remainder of the starter in one last sourdough pizza.  That is where our starter story ends.

What have you learned through caring for sourdough starter?
