Sourdough Ciabatta Bread
Awesome ciabatta recipe I perfected so that I could use my sourdough starter. With the help of the Dough cycle on the bread machine, it's super easy to make. I highly recommend using a Dutch oven for best results.
This bread freezes exceptionally well. Just thaw and reheat at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 3 to 5 minutes to refresh crust.
The vital wheat gluten is optional. I find it makes a slightly chewier loaf, but the bread is absolutely amazing even without it.
