      After I tagged this I realised that I made it before (5 minute artizan bread was called, I think)and I've been using it since I found the recipe. Great and it taste better the longer is keeps in the fridge. It was a big difference between the bread made the same time and the one I made the second day. Great for pizzas, made naan with it too (just added some oil). I love that there's no kneading!
