Place ingredients into the pan of the bread machine in the order suggested by the manufacturer.
Select the Dough cycle, and Start.
Dough will be quite sticky and wet once cycle is completed, resist the temptation to add more flour.
Place dough on a lightly floured board, cover with a large bowl, and let rest for 15 minutes.
Lightly flour or use parchment lined baking sheets.
Divide into 2 pieces, and form each into a 3x14 inch oval.
Place loaves on prepared sheets, dimple surface, and lightly flour.
Cover, and let rise in a draft free place for approximately 45 minutes.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
Dimple dough for a second time, and then place loaves in the oven, positioned on the middle rack.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
During baking, spritz loaves with water every 5 to 10 minutes for a crispier crust.
Yields 2 loafs
This is a classic Italian bread that is great! The ciabatta bread result from this recipe astounded me. I purchased ciabatta bread in the store and did not realize that making it at home is so easy with impressive results.
