The dough is from here. But I only had white four so... wasn´t really country dough. Made the sauce myself which turned out pretty good. Got the sauce recipe from here. I made a nasty mistake with the dough though. Lets just say the outside of the pie crust ended up much thicker then the middle. Live and learn I suppose. Also, I´m stuck with a gas stove which doesn´t get that hot to begin with, but also the door doesn´t completely close. Not ideal for pizza as you can imagine. No pizza stone either, just the bottom of a cookie sheet. Yummy pizza regardless! (Although I will not be getting that particular peppered salami again!)

Once I got my feet wet, like many, I was no longer scared of yeast! lol

So I made a loaf my wife had requested. A walnut scallion bread. I could not find a recipe for this online so I just winged it. It needs more scallions! But the walnuts are coming through great! Anyways, pretty good for my second loaf ever.  :D

I used this as the method.

If anyone has advice, feel free to let me know any mistakes. I´m here to learn! Just play nice eh?

Greetings all on TFL! My name is Cory, I´m new here as you can see. I finally got the nerve to bake some bread so thought I would share here. I have some experience with cookies, muffins, pancakes and crepes. Even tried a no yeast pizza dough (which was not worth trying again..). But until a couple days ago I had not touched yeast. Now that I have, to me it is similar to forcing yourself to dip your toe into a river for the first time, but once you´re completely in the water you don´t want to get out.

So here is my first attempt at a basic boule. Image is somewhat blurry. It was taken with an old and cheap digital camera.

For this loaf I used this method which is based on the 5min a day thing that seems to have exploded in the last few years (learning all this stuff in the last few days).
