My dutch oven only holds 2 quarts. will that be too small for this recipe?

Yes, too bad, probably too small.
The original Lahey recipe called for 3c flour in the main part of the bread (not the starter) and this one calls for 4 cups.
Options -
1) eventually buy a larger oven proof pan if you have enough use for it.
2) for now, try making one-third or half this recipe .
3) make an entirely different that can fit in one of your available pans.

Gina- good luck with the small loaf. Remember to check at about half and 3/4 the original baking time - it will probably be done sooner.
