  • 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!
