3 cups bread flour

Top with Parmesan cheese. Dip slices or pieces of crusty bread into oil.

Mix in Cuisinart (or by hand) Pour in yeast mixture and process until dough clears sides of bowl and then about 40 seconds more.Transfer to oiled bowl.Cover and let rise until double. Punch dough down. Fit on oiled cookie sheet, shaping and pressing into a flat free-form loaf. Let rise until doubled. Brush top with additional olive oil, sprinkle LIGHTLY with coarse salt and bake in a pre-heated oven at 375 degrees for 30 - 35 minutes.
