      Great recipe can be adapted for different purposes. Don't mist bread and you get a thick crunchy crust great for dipping or mist and get a thin crisp crust for sandwiches. I added different amounts of flour each time I made the dough. Now I just go by feel, it's generally 7-9 cups. Thank you so much for posting this!

      Barb, this bread is excellent...I got 3 good sized loaves, and one small loaf (for mom)...Nothin' to mixing up and baking...The dough is great to work with...I didn't spritz the loaves, but, they turned out fine anyway! I posted my recipe for you...I'll be making yours from now on, thanks! Laudee

      this is wonderful, just what i was looking for. so light, such a wonderful texture, not too crunchy or too soft. i did omit spraying the water on them, and i have no regrets, however, when i get a sprayer maybe i'll try it. the amount of flour is accurate i used 8 cups. i have made this 2x, the first time with all purpose flour and it came out very good. the 2nd time i made it i used king arthur bread flour, i was very extrmely pleased with the results. i can't wait to use this dough for my next pizza.
