Hmm... Maybe I need to go kitchen shopping . This sounds AWESOME! I would love to have home-baked bread all the time, but I've given up on a breadmaker (yuck! Couldn't get it to consistently work without being heavy or soggy), and while I do manage to make good bread the old-fashioned way, it's too time-consuming to do it regularly (okay, so I'm lazy :P).
My MIL and my friend use a cutting board or a cookie sheet (without the edge) and it works fine for a pizza peel. The stone though might be pretty important for the crust. I never tried without it. I always bake with stone though.

I am very lazy when it comes to bread making and that is why this method is so great! There's barely any work!

If anybody makes some, make sure to take pics and share!!!

So cool!!! Isn't it the best????
What kind of bread do you make? what flour?

Oh goodness, I think I've tried nearly everything in the book..... I use whatever unbleached white I find at the grocery store, and some brand of whole wheat I can't remember the name of (not much of an answer is that, huh?) With all the flour and dough stored in my fridge, I've considered getting a second one....

My friend really loves the pizza, and I absolutely love the challah. For sandwich bread I like the half and half version of whole wheat and white, but I do love the nutty and slightly bitter flavor of the 100%whole wheat. There are a few I haven't tried, like the American White (which I should get to). I get lazy sometimes. I just want to say that the carmel rolls made from the challah dough are absolutely to die for (and I won't even mention the brioche). I can't make them anymore, unless they are for other people! Actually, nowdays I just make the bread to give away because it's so fun... the neighbors love it. I can't justify making such quantities for our three person family...

Also, I don't use a pizza peel (I found a flat cookie sheet at Target that works just as well), but the stone is pretty essential. The stones are inexpensive though. Right now the cookie sheet is MIA, so I've been using a cutting board.

Pizza, challah, bread, wowowow!

I CAN"T believe this works! I must try it. I'm trying to read the article right now, but it's slow.

I have a bit of AP left over from cookies, and half a bag of white whole wheat, I'll be trying this tomorrow! I have to admit I'm skeptical, but if it DOES work, I want the book!!

oh man! I forgot to talk about the pizza I have made with that dough


Everyone I made pizza for was soooo impressed! Better than at any restaurant they said! you get all your toppings ready and get the dough out. Roll it out and bake for 10 minutes.....

quicker than frozen pizza and not even comparable in taste.

I have GOT to get myself a baking stone! It's been on my list for quite some time. I get Mother Earth News myself & put that recipe aside because it sounds so awesome. Your picture is fabulous, what delicious looking bread!! I grind all our wheat & make all our breads/pizzas/crackers, etc from scratch. Thanks for sharing your pics! I need to try some of that bread!

Can someone explain this part in kindergarten terms?
Quote:
Sprinkle the surface of the dough with flour, then cut off a 1-pound (grapefruit-sized) piece with a serrated knife. Hold the mass of dough in your hands and add a little more flour as needed so it won’t stick to your hands. Gently stretch the surface of the dough around to the bottom on four “sides,” rotating the ball a quarter-turn as you go, until the bottom is a collection of four bunched ends. Most of the dusting flour will fall off; it doesn’t need to be incorporated. The bottom of the loaf will flatten out during resting and baking.

I hope blossomnatalia will chime in, since she's actually done it, but what I think they mean is to dust the dough with flour, and form a ball by folding the dough under. I wish I could just show you.

Yeah that is it... you are just making a ball and stretching the "top" of it and collecting the ends at the bottom... oh man! it is very easy to do it is just hard to explain. But basically you are just forming the ball with stretching the dough gently not patting it or kneading it but "opening up" the dough.


I hope this helps... It would be cool if I could do a video

Natalia, your bread is dazzling me... I'm just about to go mix up some dough right now, and if it turns out, I'll take a pic and post it. If it doesn't, I'm not posting a pic of my failure.
