I tried this recipe because of high reviews and was very disappointed. I was able to rescue the recipe because I bake a lot of bread, but a novice would have a hard time because this recipe is flawed at it's core. To make a good bread you need to add the flour slowly, in stages, to the liquid, giving it time to incorporate. I also recommend bread flour, but that is not a big deal as you can make delicious bread with regular flour as well. You WILL need to add more water - begin with 2-3 TBS more. I also add 1 TBS olive oil and 1/2 tsp each salt and herbs (optional), then dimple the dough after resting/rising and top with oil and herbs (1/4 tsp italian herbs, basil and 1/8 red pepper flakes for a kick). I brush with oil then tomatoes sliced thin and parmesan. I am all about taking recipes as a start, but even the start of this recipe is flawed so be careful, or better yet find another.
