The dough will be VERY soft and sticky... just a warning. I really freaked out while waiting for these to bake, thinking they might not be that great. Don't worry... it's supposed to be that way, as I finally read in a few reviews AFTER I made them! I also used my stand mixer and ended up using 3 1/2 cups of the flour with my mixing paddle, then I switched to the dough hook and set it on 2 for about 8-10 minutes.
These are FANTASTIC. I thought they were very similar to french bread, and I know my bread. I ended up only using half of the dough for rolls (we're a family of three,) and I froze the other half and used it for pizza a few days later. It was my first pizza from scratch and it was AWESOME. My second batch is proofing right now. (to freeze, after proofing and punching down the first time, form leftovers into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap a few times and put in a freezer bag. To thaw, just set on the counter... it thaws fast and will expand.)
I've tried a few recipes but am still new to the bread making game... this one is a home run, in my humble opinion.
