Ever since he developed No-Knead Bread, I've been a big fan of Jim Lahey and now he's done it again. Found this recipe on Smittenkitchen.com. . Perfect served with soup or salad, or better yet as an appetizer with a glass of wine!
- Combine flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, sugar, and yeast in the bowl of an electric mixer, and slowly add 1 cup cold water.
- With dough hook (or mix by hand) mix on low speed until ingredients begin to combine, increase speed to medium-high, and continue to mix for about 10 minutes until the dough is smooth, elastic, and cleanly pulls away from the sides of the mixing bowl.
- Place dough in an oiled bowl, and allow to rest for 2 to 4 hours until it has doubled in size.
- Split the dough into halves, and form each into a log.
- Place each log on a generously floured surface, and allow it to rest until the formed dough doubles in size again, at least 1 hour.
- Put dough on a lightly floured baker’s peel.
- Dimple dough by pressing it down with your fingertips.
- Work the dough outward toward the edges of the peel until you reach your desired size and thickness, about 1/4 inch.
- Drizzle with remaining olive oil, rosemary and sprinkle with remaining salt.
- Place a baking stone, sometimes known as a pizza stone, in the oven.
- Set oven to broil, about 520 degrees (or in my case on high).
- Slide pizza onto the preheated baking stone with the baker’s peel.
- Bake until the bubbles range from golden to deep brown in color, (Jim says 10 to 12 minutes but in my case it was about 5-6 minutes,l guess mine was pretty thin) . . . suggest moving rack to the bottom of the oven).
- Serve immediately!
