  • The next day, the dough should be bubbly, fluffy, and a little sticky. Flour your hands and form either one large or two smaller bread loaves. Place the loaves on a floured baking sheet, cover them with a towel, and let them rise for about an hour.

  • Preheat the oven to 450°F and make sure you have two racks in place. Pour 2 cups of hot, boiled water into a deep baking dish. Place this baking dish on the lower rack (the water helps the bread to rise and crisp). Place the bread on the top racks. After 10 minutes, remove the dish with the water. Continue baking for another 20-30 minutes depending on the size of your bread loaves. Enjoy!
