      Very happy to hear that you are enjoying the recipe Blake. I too made this bread again over the weekend and made the original sandwich out of it. Such an easy sourdough recipe with great results every time. Thank you so very much for stopping by to tell me how you tweaked it. I’ll be the pizza will be delicious with the garlic salt on top of the bread.

    i made the bread about two days ago because i was craving Schlotzsky’s. the bread came out great! the sandwiches were awesome! i will say that at first the bread crust was not crispy on the outside so, i made my sandwiches and popped them back into the oven for a few minutes and the crust crisped up nicely! thanks for the recipe!
