    I'm sorry, but this didn't turn out well for me. The dough was still extremely sticky even after adding the entire 2 cups of flour. Despite the large amount of yeast, the dough did not rise well--I think the salt had an inhibiting effect. The flavor is decent, and I think it could be good, but the recipe needs some tweaking. Made for 123 Hits tag.

    This was good and a little salty (which I liked). I made this for ZWT5.
