Ingredients:

2 1/4 c. warm water
1 tsp. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. salt
6 to 7 c. unbleached all-purpose flour
Cornmeal
Vinegar

Directions:
Combine the yeast and water in a large bowl, stirring until yeast is dissolved. Stir in sugar and salt. Mix well and let rest for 5 minutes. Beat for 10 minutes, gradually adding flour until the dough begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl.

Turn out on a lightly floured surface. Knead for 8 to 10 minutes, until double is smooth and elastic, adding flour as necessary to prevent stickiness.

Lightly oil a large bowl. Place dough in bowl and turn to coat on all sides. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm, draft-free place until doubled in bulk—about 1 1/2 hours. Grease a baking sheet and sprinkle with cornmeal or line with parchment paper. Punch down the dough. Divide in half, shape into two round loaves and place on baking sheet. Carve an “X” in the top of the loaf and spray with vinegar. Place in a cold oven and bake at 400° for 45 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Yield: Two loaves.
