    The flavor was a bit bland but the texture was amazing and fluffy. For a simple bread it was quite delicous.

    It turned out pretty good for my first attempt. I will definitely make it again. I used this same recipe for pizza dough, I just added a 1/4 cup of olive oil, when mixing the water and flour. it turned out great

    I made this by hand I couldn’t locate my dough hook. It came out great! My oven is s little hot the bread did brown a bit more than I usually would, but that’s not a recipe issue.

    Really delicious. Though maybe I needed to put more water in the pan because they didn’t turn out quite as crunchy/crispy I was expecting, but still very good
