Top Review by BlessedOne

I made this with about 3/4 Tbsp. of salt (perfect amount for me), using whole wheat pastry flour. I had to add at least 1 cup more of flour so it would not be sticky, so I could knead it as suggested by another reviewer. It didn't seem to rise very well, so maybe next time I will jut try to bake it sticky, without more flour and without kneading. Although, I think it would be too sticky to even shape into a ball (step 5) as the recipe is. the taste is very good, so it is definitely worth another try.
