- 2 Lbs fine semolina flour
- 2 3/4 Cups lukewarm water
- 1/2 Oz Active dry yeast
- 3 Tbs EV olive oil
- 1 Tbs salt
Dissolve the yeast and salt in the water.
On a large wood board make a well in the flour and pour the water with the yeast already dissolved.
Add the oil to the water and mix the flour. Work it well until all the water has been absorbed by the flour.
Continue to work the dough until it is fully firm. You may need to add a just a bit more water or flour depending on factors such as flour, humidity, etc.
Cut a piece of dough and shape it into the form that you desire. Here are some examples:
Alternatively you can shape it into a traditional loaf design.
Put some flour on a baking sheet and position your bread creations on it.
Cover the bread with a white cloth and place it in a warm area to raise (about 90F for 1 hour)
Pre-heat the oven at 400F and bake for 1 hour. Less time if you shape the bread into small forms. Occasionally check on the color to see when it is golden and done.
