Recipe type: Bread
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 4 Ciabatta
  • 1000gr / 2lb, 3oz. Organic White All Purpose Flour (plus more for kneading and dusting)
  • 31 gr Active Yeast
  • 3 Tbsp. Salt
  • 800ml / 28oz. of warm water
  • Olive Oil
  1. Add salt at the bottom of your KitchenAid bowl and add flour. Press a little valley into the flour and add the yeast. Add ¾ of the luke-warm water and let it sit for a few minutes to activate the yeast.
  2. Mix for 2-3 minutes, using a dough hook, to combine all ingredients. Add the rest of the water and mix on medium speed for 5-8 minutes until a nice, easily stretchy dough develops. Place in a well-oiled bowl and proof for 1 hour.
  3. By now the dough should have risen nicely. Quickly but gently knead it through and divide into four equal pieces. Dust with flour and put on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Let rest for another 20 minutes before baking at 215C or 425F degrees for 25 minutes.
  4. Let it cool completely before cutting it.
