Crusty Bread

This crusty bread just works well.  I use soda water to assist in the raising of the dough to make it less dense.  It slices well, spreads well, and tastes great.  Aside from the proving time and the baking time, its quick and easy.  The dough that is formed is soft and easy to work with.

Preparation:  10 minutes to prepare, 30 – 60 min to prove and 30 – 40 min to bake.

Ingredients

600g (4 cups) Entice Pizza Mix
300g (300ml) Water or Soda Water
2 XL Eggs
45 ml (3Tbs) Olive Oil
15ml (1Tbs) Honey (optional)
1 Sachet yeast
30ml (2Tbs) Baking Powder (Gluten-Free)

Pre-heat the oven to 180°C to reach temperature when you need to bake.

Blend the powder yeast and baking powder to the dry Pizza Mix.

Mix the oil, eggs and water, add to the dry ingredients and combine to form a soft dough.

Place onto a floured board (use Entice Pizza Mix to flour) and gently form into a round shape.

Pour some olive oil into your hand and work over the surface of the loaf.

Place onto an oiled baking sheet. Leave to prove for 30 to 60 minutes in a warm area.  I use the oven warmer.

Once risen, gently egg wash the loaf.

Place into oven at 180°C and bake  30 – 40 minutes, you want the internal temperature of the loaf to reach about 92°C

Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Can be sliced while warm.

Can be sliced and frozen.
