In a large mixing bowl, add the warm water, salt, sugar and yeast. Allow to sit for 5 minutes until yeast starts to bubble. With a wooden spoon, mix in the flour one cup at a time.
Knead by hand for 5 minutes or so, until dough is soft and springy. Allow dough to rest for at least 1 hour, but up to 2 in a warm location. If its cold, I like to preheat my oven for a minute, turn it off, and let the dough sit in the warm oven to rise.
Preaheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Once dough has risen and doubled in size, knead it back down and form into 2 boule loaves. Sprinkle parchment paper with corn meal and let dough sit on corn meal to rest for 10 minutes while oven preheats.
Once oven reaches temprature, slide loaves of bread onto a baking sheet. Place baking sheet into oven and bake bread for 35 to 45 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes on a baking sheet before slicing... mangia!
