Hmm.. So my dough was nothing as described - mine was only slightly tacky and that was without the second addition of flour, needless to say I did not add the final 3/4 cup. I can only guess that there perhaps is a mistake in the recipe, particularly in the amount of water - 1/3 cup only weighed about 76 grams not 150. I may try this again with 150 grams water which sounds more appropriate for the "gloopy, sticky" dough described in the recipe. Also this calls for a lot of yeast which could probably be decreased. This is a fussy recipe with 2 additions of flour, the three rest/rise/proof periods and the fiddling with the oven temps (475, 425 then 375). What I do like is the crusty exterior and soft crumb of the interior, very good flavor (from the olive oil) and the shape/size (it is cooked in an 8 inch cast iron pan).
