Any slice is enough. It will expand while baking.

I leave my top dry, and place a pan of water on the lower rack and spray water on the walls of the oven to create steam - which makes the crust. Keep at it and your patience will pay off!

Yes, I also put a pan of hot water in the oven to make the crust nice and brown. That works well. I will keep trying with this recipe!

I saw this article, Better Bread With Less Kneading , today in the NYT. He doesn't specifically mention this book, but my calculator tells me that its recipes exceed his max 75% water-to-flour ratio.
