DIRECTIONS

  • Dissolve the yeast in the water and add the salt and sugar, stirring thoroughly.
  • Add flour, one cup at a time, beating it with a wooden spoon.
  • You can also use the dough hook on an electric mixer at low speed.
  • Add enough flour to make a fairly stiff dough.
  • Shape dough into a ball, place in a greased bowl and grease the top.
  • Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured board and shape into two round Italian style loaves.
  • Arrange onto a baking sheet, heavily sprinkled with cornmeal and allow to rise for 5 minutes.
  • Slash the tops of the loaves in 2 or 3 places with a knife or scissors.
  • Brush the loaves with water and place them into a cold oven.
  • Set the oven control at 400° and place a pan of boiling water on the bottom of the oven.
  • Bake loaves until they are crusty and done for about 40 to 45 minutes.
