I love to make bread,
there is just something about making and baking bread that is therapeutic to me.
Today I am sharing how I make "schiacciata".
Schiacciata is a flat Tuscan bread, 
and literally the word 
"schiacciata" means "squashed".
For the dough follow my super easy
 bread recipe.
When the dough has doubled in size the first time, get a grapefruit size chunk off the dough and spread as if you were making a pizza.
Let it rise for another 30 min 
(covered with a tea towel).
When making bread and pizza I always 

use my pizza stones, lightly covered with corn flour.

When 30 min. have passes, 
use your fingers to make little "dents" in the dough.
Lightly salt the dough and add fresh rosemary.

Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 25-30 minutes.

Enjoy your schiacciata!

Stay Frugal,

That looks so yummy! I used to make yeast dough stuff a lot before I was married and still lived with my parents. But after I was married I could never get the dough to raise! Decided it was my drafty old house and not-so-great heat. Now that it's all insulated and we have a furnace in I'm hoping it goes better!

I bet your kitchen always smells good because you're always cooking up something good! That bread looks delicious. I am such a bread lover. I've never tried that kind before.

That looks and sounds delicious, and nothing smells better than bread baking. Put a pot of soup on the stove, and it's heavenly!
