I've had good results with no knead bread by doing the rise in the actual dutch oven (bottom lined with parchment).
When following original recipe, I've found it messy to scoop out the very wet dough and dump it into a dutch oven without making a mess, completely deflating it or getting it all over the inside sides of the pot.
Anyone else tried this? Have you noticed a difference in texture/results?
I think the key to doing this is not using too small of a pot or the dough might stick to the sides if it hits them before baking.
