Michael's Foccacia Bread

Rating: 4.5 stars 289
This version of the classic is easy to make while remaining authentic and true to the original. This may be the fastest yeast bread you make; it takes only one hour from conception to completion. Romano or Asiago cheese are nice to use instead of Parmesan cheese.

Pain de Campagne - Country French Bread

Rating: 4.5 stars 108
I got this recipe out of a novel and made some minor changes. It is a yummy French bread that is worth the wait.

Dutch Oven Caraway Rye Bread

Rating: 4.5 stars 28
Caraway rye bread the way you like it: no-fail, easy to make, no kneading, and no double-rise! Perfect every time.

Chef John's Pourable Pizza

Rating: 4 stars 18
Besides being kind of fun to make, this pourable pizza dough method doesn't require kneading or rolling/stretching/spinning. So it's an easy way to achieve a really thin-crust pizza. Plus you get that crispy, near-charred bottom you usually get only from a pizza oven.

Sweet Potato Buns

Rating: 5 stars 43
Not only does adding sweet potatoes to a burger bun make it more nutritious, delicious, and significantly more beautiful, but it also presents the perfect opportunity to get past your flour-amount phobia, and finally be able to make dough by feel. These are the perfect taste, texture, and appearance for a hamburger bun.

Sweet Potato and Black Pepper Biscuits

Rating: 4.5 stars 13
Sweet and peppery biscuits, great for ham sandwiches with a little honey mustard. You can substitute pumpkin or winter squash for the sweet potato.

Chewy and crusty, oven-baked French baguettes made in a bread machine.

Savory Pumpkin Cornbread

Rating: 4 stars 1
Made with pumpkin, this herbal cornbread reminds me of cornbread stuffing.

Chef John's No-Knead Ciabatta

Rating: 4.5 stars 117
This bread is the perfect marriage of a crisp, light crust outside and a chewy yet tender inside. The no-knead part is just a bonus.

Pizza Oven Dough

Rating: 4.5 stars 11
Easy thin-crust pizza dough recipe handed down from my Italian grandmother.

Cinnamon Rolls II

Rating: 4.5 stars 737
I make these the night before and bake them in the morning. My family and friends can't stay out of them. They are very moist and decadently rich.

No Knead Holiday Pumpkin Bread

Rating: 5 stars 22
The dough is so soft, so supple, so sensual that it's a joy to make this bread. Pumpkin gives it a soft color and super-subtle flavor. It's a great country bread.
