To mix in a stand mixer:
In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the sourdough starter discard, hot water, olive oil, and honey. Add the flour, salt, and yeast, if using.
Using a bread hook, knead the dough until a smooth, elastic dough forms. If the dough doesn't mix easily, add a few more tablespoons of water to achieve this.
To mix by hand:
Combine the ingredients in the order listed in a large mixing bowl. Stir until the dough starts to form a shaggy ball.
Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead until a smooth, elastic dough forms.
Transfer the dough ball to a greased bowl. Cover with a lid or plastic wrap and allow to rise at room temperature until doubled in bulk, about six to eight hours.
Move the dough to a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into three equal portions and form each into a round dough ball.
Stretch each dough ball into a large round and place on a greased pizza screen.
Add your toppings and bake on the grill or in the oven at 475 until the crust is crisp and the toppings are cooked, about 5 to 8 minutes.
If you'd like you can substitute 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour for an equal amount of the bread flour. This changes the flavor and texture of the dough, but also increases the fiber content.
