I have heard about this yeast bread, and want to give it a try. Would someone please share the recipe?~~Vicki
I found this Vicki-I am wondering if the term refers to Bread shape like the kind of Loaf one puts Spinach Dip into?~Alliea
I bet a dip in the center of a Homemade loaf would be Delicious.~Alliea

Time: About 45 minutes plus about 3 hours’ resting and rising
1 1/2 tablespoons yeast
1 1/2 tablespoons kosher salt
6 1/2 cups unbleached, all-purpose flour, more for dusting dough
1. In a large bowl or plastic container, mix yeast and salt into 3 cups lukewarm water (about 100 degrees). Stir in flour, mixing until there are no dry patches. Dough will be quite loose. Cover, but not with an airtight lid. Let dough rise at room temperature 2 hours (or up to 5 hours).
2. Bake at this point or refrigerate, covered, for as long as two weeks. When ready to bake, sprinkle a little flour on dough and cut off a grapefruit-size piece with serrated knife. Turn dough in hands to lightly stretch surface, creating a rounded top and a lumpy bottom. Put dough on pizza peel sprinkled with cornmeal; let rest 40 minutes. Repeat with remaining dough or refrigerate it.
3. Place broiler pan on bottom of oven. Place baking stone on middle rack and turn oven to 450 degrees; heat stone at that temperature for 20 minutes.
4. Dust dough with flour, slash top with serrated or very sharp knife three times. Slide onto stone. Pour one cup hot water into broiler pan and shut oven quickly to trap steam. Bake until well browned, about 30 minutes. Cool completely.
Yield: 4 loaves.
Variation: If not using stone, stretch rounded dough into oval and place in a greased, nonstick loaf pan. Let rest 40 minutes if fresh, an extra hour if refrigerated. Heat oven to 450 degrees for 5 minutes. Place pan on middle rack.
Thank you, Alliea. Someone needed advice on this bread, and I needed to make it in order to help.~~Vicki
Alliea - Its on the first rise. ~~Vicki
CHECK OUT THIS VIDEO. Wish I had seen it before I baked the first loaf.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zMxJgIpe38Q
What a Great video Vicki- Very informative and lots of uses for the bread too! (Pizza Dough etc)
This is a Must try for next week Vicki
.I am thinking of doing one with a Spinach Dip over the Holidays. Usually most families just get a store bought loaf~ This sounds like a good treat to make with Homemade and chunks of dipping bread on a Platter~Alliea

DAR lady Got a wicked cold
I hope you feel better soon.
Thanks Alleia, first time I've been sick in 4 years. I actually think it's allergies from sleeping with my doors open night before last cause i'm really careful about taking care of myself. It just got so hot in the house from baking the scones, and it was so nice and cool outside, I turned my fan on and opened the doors. Won't pull that trick again LOL
