Hi Jerry, Thanks for the recipe. You are suggesting 450gms flour to 450mls water - ie 100% hydration. I mixed according to the recipe, and got a product more like a cake batter and would not hold any shape at all, so I added more flour to get a sticky dough. The result worked fine, a good crust and light crumb texture. Seems like 450 flour to 300 water (66% hydration) would be better - is this a typo? Anyhow, thanks for taking the trouble to post.
