No-knead bread in smaller pots?

I'm finally getting around to trying the no-knead bread this week. Reading through the recipe though, it calls for a 6-quart plus sized pot. I've got le Creuset ovens, but only in the 3.5-quart size.

What I'd like to know is, can I split the dough between two pans and still be successful? Alternately, can I halve the recipe safely?
