I love chef John. Just a question though, If you knead the dough-do you have to refrigerate for 18 hours? Thx!!

I made the original recipe using cups to measure, spoon flour in and level off with straight edge, and only let mine rise a few hours and it still turned out one of the best doughs ever! It was full of little bubbles and very elastic and had great flavor. Hubby is still raving over the "garage pizza" as we call it. I placed this dough to sit in the hot garage to rise as I refused to turn on the oven in this summer heat wave. Hey, it works.
