Ok, I am sure everyone is sick of me talking about how amazing the Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day is, but in case you missed that memo I will remind you today:)

We made the master boule recipe and had huge success! We made a big crusty rustic loaf, 2 French baguettes, and 2 pizzas with just one recipe. It was so nice to have the dough in the fridge, whenever we were craving fresh bread or pizza, we just cut off a portion of the dough. This method really is magic.

Josh is a pizza fanatic, so of course we had to see if the dough lived up to our high pizza standards. We made 2 thin crust pizzas and the results were outstanding! The crust was perfect and again, it was SO easy!

So if you still haven’t tried this method, get moving! You will be so glad you did! I love that you can make bread, pizza, calzones, sticky buns, bagels, etc. Your choices are endless! So get the book and get baking!! Anyone can do it, I promise!

Get the best of the best!

    Bagels are next on my list!

  34. I like everything that I’ve made so far from this book. I tried making pizza with the olive oil dough, but it didn’t work as well as my go-to pizza dough recipe. And I love the convenience of having dough in the fridge all the time.

  35. The book sounds amazing and will have check it out at amazon. Your pizzas turned out perfecto!


  36. As always, your pizza looks delicious. I went to that link and it’s like a blog. Is there a beginning to how to really start on that Artisan bread because I do want to try it.

  37. Love this book and so nice to see that so many people are baking from it. Haven’t tried the pizza crust recipe just yet 🙂

  38. I made the ABin5 today. We loved the taste of the bread and I can see it getting tastier as the days go by. Kind of like a lazy mans sourdough. I like that. I love that its there in the fridge waiting for its star roll in some kind of bread or pizza. I really need to get the book now.
