Rustic Tuscany Bread
We have 2 Costco conveniently located in different sites of the city I live in. We also have many of the others but Costco is always my best choice for grossary. I bought this cooking book at Costco 4 years ago and have been practicing the recipes it offers. And as it says I found it incredibly easy to follow. Rustic Tuscany Bread from the cooking book has been the most facinating piece to me. I did it quite often and I did it kind of my own special version. It looks gorgeous and tastes fantastic. My friends screamed every time I brought it to dinner parties.
It is incredibly easy.
I don't like frozen bread dough so I had to come up with the bread dough myself. It's the same dough I use for focaccia
Drained tomato stew as filling.
I rolled the dough to a 5mm thick 30x40 cm rectangle and spray 1 table spoon of olive oil with a sprinkle of sea salt evenly over the dough.
Drained tomato stew over 2/3 of dough.
Add a layer of pizza cheese.
I guess it will be pretty much OK if you add more ingredients.
First 1/3 on the second 1/3~~~~My poor English. ><!
2/3 on the last 1/3~~~~folding done!
Some flour on both sides~~~
Let it rest for one hour to double the size.
Score few diamonds on the top of dough. This is the most exciting part of making the bread.
The tip is to cut the dough deep and wide to reveal the filling but still firm enough to hold the filling inside the dough after baking.
The beauty from my oven.
I love how the scoring turned out.
