  1. Made just as directed (and checking with you on insta). Came out absolutely perfect!! Perfect amount of chew too.

  2. Can you freeze this dough? I made it and it rose very quickly over night and I’ll have no ingredients for my pizza until this evening… :s

  3. Mixing this up now for pizza tonight! I’m so proud that I revived my sourdough starter from the fridge where it sat for a couple weeks!

  4. Hi Kate, when it says “starter” does that mean fed or unfed? Or is that discard? Clearly, I’m new to this 🙂
